Dahdi issue with Asterisk 1.8.0

Hi

I was using the delivered Ubuntu 1.6.x packages but I wanted to look at
gtalk integration so I downloaded, compiled and installed the source (after
removing the Ubuntu packages) have installed the following:

asterisk-1.8.0
dahdi-linux-complete-2.4.0+2.4.0
libpri-1.4.11.5

I copied my config back into place and most seems to work, but I cannot get
my phone that is plugged into the Wildcard TDM400P REV E/F card that I have
to work.

Basically, I don’t hear the dial tone and Asterisk does not register off
hook events. I have spent time reviewing my config but I don’t see what the
issue is.

Is there anything I am missing, or can you suggest some additional things to
look at?

    I have no experience with 1.8, but unless things have changed channel=

    Don’t you also need [line1] at the beginning of each section?

    using context=default has been a security issue in the past. Using a
    different context, and having the default context point to nothing more
    than a rude recording may save you in the case of a security breach

    Weird, all the configs seem to be generated with those extra lines. My
    default current talks about weasels, which is causing me issues with gtalk,
    but that is another issue.

    I was missing:

    #include dahdi-channels.conf

    from chan_dahdi.conf.

    Thanks

  • Not so far, but I am still pretty excited to have a dial tone 😉 Two hours
    last night (and a 1:30 am bed time) lost because I missed one line in a
    config file.

    So far I have only tested dialing out through the Dahdi interface from a
    connected analog phone and a sip phone. That works, but I need to do
    something about the echo on the sip phone.
