Question Asterisk Predictive Dialer need VOIP adapters to Make a VOIP call...


Dear All,

I am new for the Asterisk Predictive dialer. Here we have asterisk dialer in our Slackware Linux, and 1 MBPS Internet Bandwidth and we had purchase VOICE MINUTES from some provider. My doubt is we need any other Hardware or Software to make a Internet VOIP call to other country.


Thanks and Regards

S. A. Yusuf Sithik

Hello jpmaxyusuf


i do not understand your question maybe...

but if you have purchased some CALL MINUTES from some provider...

he should give you some access details

like:
SIP server URL/ip maybe
user name:
pw:

and maybe tell you what soft phone is compatible with his server...


i have used in the past soft phones but i had to configure this paramters

server url
user:
pw:

and maybe some protocol to use...



good luck

Hello jpmaxyusuf,

You do not need a hardware IP phone, though it can be used. You can download any free software Voip phone to make calls. You will have to provide the IP provided as the domain and also provide userId and Password in the configuration of the software IP phone. There are a lot of VoIP phone in Linux, one of them is Ekiga.

I use X-Lite to make calls.

I have a problem here, i want to make calls from other PCs connected to my machine.

I am now able to connect all my PCs to make calls using Asterisk.

I am facing a problem. While making calls I can hear the voice at the other end, but my voice can not be heard at the other end. What may be the problem.

I found the solution to this problem. SIP protocol does not support NAT(network address translation) and hence cannot route sound properly. There are a lots of workarounds and solutions as per location of asterisk server on Asteriskguru.com
