Setup Guide for Asterisk
Asterisk is fully compatible with MaxoTel VoIP. Before you begin, ensure that you’ve created your extension in the My Account Portal, https://my.maxo.com.au/. To retrieve the details of an existing extension, or create a new extension, login to the My Account Portal and select SIP Trunks from the menu. If you’re creating a new extension, click the Add Extension button, fill in the details and click Save. For additional information on creating an extension, please see Portal Guide – PBX Extensions and Sip Trunks Find the extension number you’re configuring, then click Edit.
Take note of the following fields, highlighted in the image below, as you’ll need these to setup the device.
- Register Username: This is the full username, not the short Ext No.
- SIP Proxy: The server you’ll be connecting to.
- Re-Register Interval: Defines how often your device should check in.
- Password: The extension’s password
Note that if the extension is already configured on a device, you’ll need to reconfigure, power down or factory reset the currently connected device before the required information will be displayed. Please choose your Asterisk deployment type below for configuration details.
