Astfin2 User FAQ

We have revamped astfin2 file system layout to look more like traditional linux distribution.
All persistent storage is mounted under /persistent and all configuration files are symlinked back in /etc folder
Your startup files reside under /etc/init.d/ and you can manage them as follows:

  • /etc/init.d/app_name start ; to start the service
  • /etc/init.d/app_name stop; to stop the service
  • /etc/init.d/app_name restart; to restart the service
  • /etc/init.d/app_name enable; enable autostart
  • /etc/init.d/app_name disable; disable autostart
  • All our boxes ship with default IP address configured to and DHCP option set to “no” to enable static IP address.

    From the GUI you can select two other options as below:
    DHCPD=yes ; dhcp client will be used to obtain an IP address from a DHCP server located on your network.

    DHCPD=auto ; in this case, we will try to use the default or assigned IP address, however, if your current network will not match, we will automatically switch and try to use DHCP client instead.

    If you are using GUI you will be able to change your network setup using your preferred browser:(, providing your other computer is on the same network).
    Our default passwords:

  • ssh/ftp/scp: uClinux
  • Web GUI: admin/astfin
  • If you wish to setup your time zone, please use the GUI (under Networking).
    Our GUI is fully functional incl. firmware updates and factory defaults and we strongly recommend to configure your boxes using it. Please note that “make image” command will generate two different images, uImage and uImage-md5.

    Please make sure to use uImage-md5 while performing firmware upgrades using the GUI.

    If you wish to change the span type (pr1-appliance) between E1 and T1, you can also use the GUI (Configure Hardware) and edit the span information to the appropriate values.

    Full support for provisioning BRI interfaces has been added to the GUI for BR4-Appliance.

    During the initial boot, the system will try to download default sound packages from Digium. Since initial IP address most likely will not match your network, communication will not be possible and you will need to wait for this process to timeout. After you change your network configuration, the system will download the sound package and mark this task as complete.

    I just added a small agi script to retrieve current IP and to play it back via dialplan.
    You need to svn update (astfin2 trunk) to get the latest persistent files (with
    and add the following into your dialplan:
    exten => 222,1,agi(
    exten => 222,n,NoOp(${IP_ADD})
    exten => 222,n,Sayalpha(${IP_ADD})
    exten => 222,n,Hangup
