Asterisk works under OpenVZ (no zaptel)


Just to let you know that I did a basic test with asterisk on an OpenVZ VE and it works. We only tested SIP connectivity (it would probably be complex to have Zaptel support and I don't really need it). We were able to connect to a VoIP provider using SIP (unlimitel) and music on hold works.

The only thing I had to change to make it work is to comment out this line in /usr/sbin/safe_asterisk:

#TTY=9 # TTY (if you want one) for Asterisk to run on

(I guess there is no TTY9 (console # 9) on openVZ since it is a virtual machine and TTY9 is usually a physical console (monitor)).

I'll soon put my asterisk server in a VE, I'll let you know how it goes. I also use Unlimitel and ATAs to link my PSTN line and cordless phones.

Is it possible to use freepbx with Asterisk on VE?
If you tried it, please place your VE somewhere on the net to downoad.
