Not very familiar with posting on forums...

I have (finally) finished setting up TrixBox on VirtualBox under Ubuntu Hardy.

Here are some pointers to hopefully save you time:

You need to set VB network to Host Interface and bridge your network

Write in /etc/hosts (in TB)

and the SIP Trunk Peer settings are:


please note the addition of the red line that finally got me working

Hope this is useful.

I've never had to use the contact=friend before and am not really sure what purpose it does serve.

With the newer versions of trixbox (and it appears elastix as well so it's maybe a freepbx issue) disallow needs to be used before the allow line. This was never a requirement before but trunk settings don't seem to work in some cases unless this line is used first.

Nope neither do I ...But I tried it out of desperation after studying a trixbox/gizmo forum - and it worked! I suppose it's a bit like a Holden "if it works don't fix it" although thats probably counterintuitive / redundant in this game.

As for the Dsallow / Allow precedence I'm not sure if it was important but it's certainly coming to the fore in most guides now.

I have also just hooked a GSM gateway in - so for future reference that is also do-able via VirtualBox.
