Elastix and Kamailio Part 1 – Installing

The Kamailio module for Elastix allows you to easily integrate Elastix with a enterprise SIP server. All SIP handsets register to Kamailio. All internal SIP calls stay within Kamailio however if a call is external then Kamailio will push the call out to asterisk to deal with it.

WARNING: DO NOT INSTALL THIS ON A PRODUCTION MACHINE! Some of you may want be wanting to increase the capacity of your Elastix machine. Asterisk generally has issues when you start to put a lot of SIP peers on it. One of the best ways to get around this is to install a proper SIP server and join it with asterisk. This allows you to register all your SIP handsets to the SIP server and make calls through to your asterisk machine.

To install the Kamalio module you first need to create the directory for it to go in. It installs itself from the directory /var/kamailio

mkdir /var/kamailio

Now change to the directory

cd /var/kamailio

Download the kamailio integration file from the MBIT website

wget http://www.mbit.com.au/kamailio-v2.tgz

Untar the file into the directory

tar zxvf kamailio-integration.tgz

In the directory now will be a heap of files you want to execute the script that installs all the modules for you. To run the script execute install_kamailio.sh


Soon as it is installed we will move to the next part for configuring Kamailio. The installation can take a while so please be patient. The installation can only be used with Elastix 2.0.

    An interesting dialogue is worth comment. I think that you need to write more on this matter, it might not be a taboo topic but generally individuals are not sufficient to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers
