Configuring a Sangoma Vega analogue gateway

Notes

  • Screenshots are from the Vega60G v2 8xFXS, but should apply to larger devices.
  • Only FXS ports are considered in this document. FXO ports are not supported.
  • The following instructions assume a Vega with factory settings.
  • In a future version of the PBX (6.5.14+), it is possible to use the auto-config instructions.

Auto config (PBX version 6.5.14+)

  1. Browse to the PBX web interface and log in as an admin or ‘sys’ user.
  2. Edit the URL to be: http://pabx/admin/vega.whtm/xxxxxxxxxxxx where the ‘x’ characters are replaced by the MAC address of the vega device (The device must already have been added as per instructions in the long-hand setup below).
  3. Save the contents of that file to a text file. Note: use copy/paste of the web page to do this as File/Save in the browser does not always work.
  4. Use the upload page of the vega to install the config: System Maintenance Page
