Hello All,

I have VOIP-GSM gateways for voip call termination. I want to use a2billing and asterisk server in order to terminate whole-sale voip calls. I have already installed Elastix 2.2.0 RC3 in which asterisk 1.8.7 and a2billing 1.8 is installed.

Please help me how can I proceed?

Regards,
Zahid

Hi

We would recommend that you consider something other than Trixbox/Elastix for a base for A2Billing, because although they are both very competent office PBX's the issue is that they have not been designed to be exposed directly to the internet, but to be hidden safely behind an office firewall.

Additionally, Asterisk 1.8 is still experimental as far as A2Billing is concerned, I would suggest as a new start, you stick with 1.4 or 1.6.

Building Wholesale services is a case of setting up your trunks, callplans, ratecards, and customers, configuring the VoIP account, making sure you don't answer the call, and then start the calls flowing.

Yours

Joe

Hello Joe,

Thank you very much for your kind reply.
If I use linux firewall(iptables) in Elastix, then will there be any security risk to expose directly to INTERNET.

Regards,
Zahid Hasan

Hi

There is more to security than just a firewall.

hello Joe,

quick question... sometime ago I tested this type of configuration and my problem was that the call was being answered... here's what I did back then:

[test]
exten => _X.,1,Answer
exten => _X.,n,Wait(1)
exten => _X.,n,deadAGI(a2billing.php|4)
exten => _X.,n,Hangup

what should I change to make it work to be sure that I don't answer the call?

THANKS in advance!

I don't know whether you are winding me up or not.

I'll give the benefit of the doubt, and respectfully suggest that you need to do some learning or get some professional training (http://www.star2billing.com/consultancy ... d-install/)

In the first line of your [test] context, you have an Answer line, which means "Answer the call" If you create a context that does not have an "Answer" line in it, then the call will not be answered. e.g.

Code:
[test]
exten => _1.,n,deadAGI(a2billing.php|4)
exten => _X.,n,Hangup

hello jroper,

THANK YOU for your respectful and kind answer!

I did see that before but as you said I have been learning. I will give it a try sometime next week.

Last night I was able to get video calls with A2Billing :)

thanks to the developers for giving us A2Billing and also to the kind people who help in a positive way!!

hello jroper,

I tested it last night... it's working! :laugh:

after reading a little more I made this change:

[test]
exten => _X.,1,deadAGI(a2billing.php|4)
exten => _X.,n,Hangup

calls were going thru but were charged always, even when they were not completed or answered. That was fixed by changing answer_call to no in agi-conf4

THANK YOU again!
