This is the first part in a series of posts showing how to get started with FusionPBX. They will run through setting up an extension and also making and receiving external calls.
In this post we’ll use a fresh install of FusionPBX and X-Lite 4.1 on Windows as a softphone.
First log in to your new FusionPBX install –
Next click Accounts / Extensions –
Next client the Plus (+) sign on the right hand side of the page –
Now enter the extension details. The only thing required, and the only thing we are going to enter, is the extension number 1234 –
and click save to save the extension settings.
Now we’re going to click on the edit extension button, next to the extension we just created –
And now click in the password box, which will display the auto generated password for the extension –
Now we can use those extension details in the X-Lite accounts page. All we need is the FusionPBX server IP address, the extension number and the extension password –
Finally we can make a test call to *9664 which should be Music On Hold if everything has worked OK –
