    2. No sound when I call for my GSM to asterisk.
    3. No sound when I call from asterisk to other numbers… Thank you for your help…

  • The solution is obvious:

    Install Debian 7.0 on the system and proceed as before 🙂

  • Very cool answer… But, my problems is not resolved… As I said, I want to use asterisk on OsX to get vocal system to make a vocal directory and vocal lookcid with VoiceOver synths…. And I don’t believe there’s a good synths on debian7. I use debian for the moment but I’d like transfert on my mac mini server.
