First encounter with Asterisk Free PBX

Yesterday I started to try to install and Configure asterisk. Well, I dont have any digium fxs or fxo hardware yet so I'm toying with SIP Softphones. But before that, I manually installed asterisk on my already running Centos box, after installing some depedencies, I got it working. I installed it from CVS so that I have the latest version.

After reading some site that has lots of asterisk configuration sample, I manage to have a working SIP Softphone with the use of SJPhone. I did not made with Xlite with the same config, I dunno yet why it happend. On Xlite, when trying to call the registered prefix, it'll just sat call not allowed while on SJPhone, it allows even to its own number. Below are my sip.conf and extensions.conf with voicemail.conf.

/etc/asterisk/sip.conf

/etc/asterisk/extensions.conf


;I'd just append the entries below to the sample
;extensions.conf file of asterisk 1.2
[testing]
;
exten => 1000,1,Dial(SIP/x1000, 10)
exten => 1000,2,VoiceMail(10001@testing, 10)
exten => 1000,3,PlayBack(vm-goodbye)
exten => 1000,4,HangUp()
exten => 999,1,VoiceMailMain(10001@testing)
;
exten => 3000,1,Dial(SIP/3000)
;exten => 3000,2,VoiceMail(10001@testing, 10)
;exten => 1000,3,PlayBack(vm-goodbye)
;exten => 1000,4,HangUp()
;exten => 999,1,VoiceMailMain(10001@testing)
;
exten => 2000,1,Dial(SIP/x2000) ;;//for user x2000
;
exten => 4001,1,Dial(SIP/4001)
;when dialing 4001, analog phone connected at the said antek fxs gateway should ring
;assuming properly configured..


and the voicemail.conf
/etc/asterisk/voicemail.conf


[testing]

x1000 => 1000, x1000, email@mymail.com

;the voicemail.conf is already an existing file, so I just added the above entry at the last line
;of this file



Ok, by default, the antek gateway has been set to H323, so VoIP protocol needs to be changed to SIP so it will be able to communicate with the asterisk SIP protocol. You can access the gateway via http or telnet for the configuration changes... here are some basics via http.

-
The model of the used gateway above.
-

-
SIP Configuration portion.. entries should match on the /etc/asterisk/sip.conf
-

-
Voice Processing control should be like that above... but you can actually used those other codecs since they are also being supported by asterisk.

For now, the config works fine, but still have so many features to discover..
