Here are the steps how to connect GSM Gateway GoIP8 to Asterisk. Required features: the possibility to outgoing calls and receive incoming. For outgoing calls to have a choice of an arbitrary line.
1. GoiP 8 configuring
It is assumed that you have a new device out of the box, so the steps – as for factory settings.
Insert SIM card in slots, turn on the power. GoIP8 has 2 ports “LAN” and “PC”.
The «PC» port has a static address 192.168.8.1 by default and can be used to connect switches which can be connected to users’ PC (gateway supports DHCP server).
The «LAN» port can be used if your network is already running a DHCP server. In this case, the gateway will receive one of the addresses in your network. In order to know the IP-address your gateway has received, you can either:
- send to one of SIM-cards (with a positive balance) SMS or text info INFO. You’ll receive SMS with IP-address
- ask netwwork administrator
- enter the gateway IP address into the browser. The default username / password for authentication in the Gateway is admin / admin. You will be sent to “Status” page:
