call an Asterisk server dynamically using IAX without having a VOIP gateway account?
Posted on 2006-05-16
I have created an Asterisk server, primarily using IAX2 softphones (idefisk from asteriskguru.com, highly recommended!)
I have extensions both locally and remotely logged in to it.
I want to dial another asterisk server using one of the logged in extensions.
I know the IP address of the other asterisk server, but I want to be able to add that into the dial string. So far, this hasn't worked! I just get facility not subscribed on the IDEFISK software.
Am I going to have to sign up for a VOIP provider account?
I thought Asterisk would have the capability of being a gateway itself and be able to dial other asterisk servers on the internet, when the dialstring is presented with an appropriate extension and ip address?
Hope someone can help me!
Thanks for reading!
