No outgoing in manual dial

Postby » Tue Mar 21, 2023 4:01 am

My vicidial server sits behind an Alcatel exchange, I have successfully configured my vicdial throgh SIP to the Alcatel. I can make outgoing calls from vicidial (using microsip) through Alcatel, all is fine. But I cannot make outgoing calls through vicidial dial interface, followed some tutorials from youtube ( ... olxmbx8MYZ) to configure, created users, phones, campaigns etc. when I dial through vicidial interface, the asterisk cli shows nothing indicating that call, but when I call by microsip asterisk cli shows logs properly, somehow vicidial is not able to connect to asterisk ? Tried with disabling firewall. When I login as an agent microsip springs in to action but after that asterisk cli is idle.
Can you help me ? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Asterisk : Asterisk 16.30.0-vici
Version :vicibox10 (Installed from official ISO)
Virtualbox VM

If there's absolutely no output in asterisk cli when you make a call via Vicidial, next thing I'd check is are all the required screen sessions running?

You'll need at the very least the following:

Code: Select all
~ # screen -ls
There are screens on:
        11820.ASTVDauto (Detached)
        9162.ASTVDadapt (Detached)
        31667.ASTlisten (Detached)
        31664.ASTsend   (Detached)
        31661.ASTupdate (Detached)
        25446.asterisk  (Detached)
        25439.astshell20221207012104    (Detached)
        20085.ASTfastlog        (Detached)

There may be a few others there, but each of the ones above is the minimum required for a functioning Vicidial system.

I'm going to guess one or more of these are not running, the question then becomes, why not?
Usually asterisk has crashed or is running as a service (not started by the vicidial startup script) this will cause cascading failures of some of the scripts you see (or don't) running in a screen session.

If any are missing, run the following and post the output:
Code: Select all
/usr/share/astguiclient/ --debugX

Thanks for your kind reply and valuable time, in the end it turned out to be the problem of dial plan entries created in CARRIER settings, as a direct call from the softphone itself was working alright my though was vicidial shall follow too. I was under pressure, so desperately searching for a solution, got a hint from elsewhere and tried and it worked, thanks anyway.
