[How-To] Install Asterisk 11 and chan_dongle on Odroid C2

Just a quick How-To about installing Asterisk 11 and Chan_Dongle (GSM audio & SMS channel for Huawei USB dongles) on Odroid C2.

Chan_dongle project: https://www.google.it/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwiTm8XgkeLdAhVISxoKHexcDuUQFjAAegQICRAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fgithub.com%2Fbg111%2Fasterisk-chan-dongle&usg=AOvVaw33ocbduA5SQvFdPTce1TOc
NOTE: chan_dongle works with just a few of Huawei USB dongle models, see the above link.


system update

su - root
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade
apt-get clean
apt-get autoclean
apt-get autoremove


su - root
apt-get install git
apt-get install build-essential
apt-get install libncurses5-dev
apt-get install libxml2
apt-get install libxml2-dev
apt-get install libsqlite3-dev
apt-get install libiksemel-dev libssl-dev

Asterisk 11 installation

su - root
git clone -b 11 http://gerrit.asterisk.org/asterisk asterisk-11
cd  asterisk-11
make menuconfig # optional
make install
make samples
/usr/sbin/asterisk # first run of asterisk
asterisk -vvvvvr # Asterisk CLI: type "core show help" to test it
killall asterisk  # kill Asterisk process

chan dongle install

su - root
wget https://github.com/jstasiak/asterisk-chan-dongle/archive/asterisk11.zip
unzip asterisk11.zip
cd asterisk-chan-dongle-asterisk11/
cp configure.in configure.ac
automake -a
make all
make install

Asterisk configuration, modify example files for your needs

su - root
nano /etc/asterisk/dongle.conf
nano /etc/asterisk/voicemail.conf
nano /etc/asterisk/extensions.conf
nano /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf
nano /etc/asterisk/sip.conf

Asterisk start & test

su - root
asterisk -vvvvvr # Asterisk CLI


in the Asterisk CLI type: “core show help” to see available commands,
to test dongle type: “dongle show devices”, you should see something like this:

> dongle show devices
ID           Group State      RSSI Mode Submode Provider Name  Model      Firmware          IMEI             IMSI             Number        
dongle0      1     Free       14   5    4       3 Italy        E169       11.314.11.00.00   358109024xxxxxxx  22299210xxxxxx  +393935xxxxx

I will post configuration examples ASAP, anyway you might find a lot of interesting guides about that. :wink:

Hi pilovis.
Thanks for your tutorial.

I try compile it and i received that error:

It’s relative with SSL. You have any idea, to solve that compile issue?
