FFA - Asterisk


Hi, I have a fax installation with a FFA license which seems to be
installed correctly (in fax show stats, I see that I have 1 Digium
G.711 licensed channel, and 1 Digium T.38 licensed channel). When trying to call my business line with a fax machine, it looks like
it's ringing to my asterisk box, then transfer the call to my extension.
In the logs, I see (after the line where it says that my extension is
ringing): chan_sip.c: Fax detected but no fax extension. How come does Asterisk even try to ring…

Running as non-root


Hello. I would like to run asterisk as an user other than root. I have seen some
tutorials on the web, but I would like to know if there is some “official”
how-to for this. Is there? I looked at a thread on reviewboard regarding this
( It was Paul Belangers work trying
to make the installation process take care of this. But the conclusion seem
to be that the parts concerning this was postponed. So, did it make it in
some other way? BR, Torbjörn Abrahamsson

Keeping Voice Call Active During Data Connectivity Loss


Greetings- I'm working on a unique Asterisk installation where I've been given a requirement of keeping a voice call active, even during a data connectivity loss. So, let's assume I have remote users connecting to an Asterisk server via "sometimes unreliable" connectivity such as satellite, wireless, ordial-up. It is certainly possibly this connectivity will go down for a period of time anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes (or more). During this outage, if a call was already in session, is there any way to prevent the call from be hung up, and simply kept alive until media…

Beginning Asterisk


f you had the card already installed when you built DAHDI, then it should already have generated you a plausible configuration file. I have a TDM410P with two FXO and two FXS interfaces. I've attached my /etc/asterisk/chan_dahdi.conf and /etc/dahdi/system.conf to give you a starting point. You will have to remove or comment lines that don't apply to your installation, and maybe change the country and the method of getting caller ID. You dial out using something like this in your dialplan: exten => _XXXXX.,1,Dial(DAHDI/g1/${EXTEN}) exten => _XXXXX.,2,Hangup() This will send any number of 5 digits or more via the PSTN.…

X86_64 Compilation Issue


Hi, compiling up a new installation of Asterisk 1.8.5 on CentOS 6 X86_64 and am seeing the following when running the make: /usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/ when searching for -lpam
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/ when searching for -lssl
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libssl.a when searching for -lssl
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/ when searching for -lcrypto
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libcrypto.a when searching for -lcrypto How can I get Asterisk to pick up the 64 bit version of the libraries instead of the 32 bit ones ? Is it just a case of updating LD_LIBRARY_PATH ?

No D-channels available! Using Primary channel as D-channel anyway!


Its probably not a bug so don't apply this patch. No D-Channel means
it cant sync up. It could be related to anything but the least likely
is that its a bug in libpri or dahdi.
Just go thru your configs, check and double check the cabling.
