Guide – How To Start – Asterisk – VoIP System on CentOS Stream 8

Connecting and Configuring Asterisk on CentOS Stream 8

To start the server, you just need to start the VM through Azure Portal. To configure the server, you should connect to the VM and call the game console.

SSH connection


1. With OpenSSH

In the Windows 10 operating system (starting with version 1809 ), an OpenSSH client is available, with which you can connect to Linux servers via SSH. If the version of Windows 10 is suitable and the OpenSSH client is installed, then you can start connecting via SSH. To do this, launch a normal Windows command prompt and enter the command ” ssh “. In response, you should receive information about working with this command.

In general, the syntax of the ” ssh ” command is as follows:

ssh user@server

Where “user” is the username that was specified while creating the virtual machine and “server” is the VM IP address.

In the opened console it is necessary to enter a password that was specified while creating the virtual machine.

2. With the PuTTy application 

Download it at the following link – Download.

Run Putty, enter the VM address in the “Host” field and click “Open” to connect.

In the opened console it is necessary to enter a username and password that were specified while creating the virtual machine.

  1. To enter the asterisk service console enter the command
