  STEP 1: Dinstar Network Settings

The Default IP address and Login credentials of Brand new Dinstar Gateways are 

192.168.11.1
username: admin
password: admin.

The very first step is to change the IP address to you local network address
There are couple of ways to change this IP in dinstar gateway

1. Attach a PC assigned with with same subnet IP (ie:192.168.11.2/24) either directly to the dinstar gateway of connect both in an existing LAN network and access the web utility of the dinstar gateway ie: https://192.168.11.1/
Note: the existing LAN should not be 192.168.11.0 /24 network.

2. Second options , You can connect you PC to the Dinstar Serial port via a RS232 cable and connect to the console to change the Network settings

3. Third Option , you can insert a GSM SIM in one of the Port in Dinstar and Dial in the GSM number ,followd to the IVR enter below Feature codes to change the IP

IP            *152*192*168*1*123#
Subnet    *154*255*255*255*0#
Gateway *156*192*168*1*1#
Restart    *111#
As per this Tutorial we will use the Option 1

Dinstar-Default IP

Now use your favorite browser ,browse the Dinstar gateway IP  that is
https://192.168.11.1/
use the credentials admin/admin

Navigate to the Menu : 
Network Configuration > Local Network
Now change the IP address ,Subet and Gateway IP.
Followed to that restart the device once and access the device with the new IP address

  STEP 2: Dinstar SIP Server &  SIP Trunk settings

Before we proceed with Step 2 ,we need the below details
1. SIP serverip ,that is Asterisk server IP
2. SIP Port, default 5060 ,if it is different need the same.

Login to your Dinstar admin portal
Navigate to 
Call Configuration > SIP Configuration
under > SIP Proxy > SIP server address 
enter the Asterisk server IP address

next Under > Outbound Proxy > Outbound Proxy Address
Enter the same Asterisk server IP Address

Navigate to :
Call Configuration > Port Group Configuration

In Dinstar the outbound route is under >  IP > Tell Routing section
and for inbound route is > under Tel -> IP routing.

Outbound Routing
Navigate to :
Call Configuration > IP -> Tell Routing
Then Add the below details

  STEP 4: Vicidial/Asterisk SIP Trunk and Dialplan


 Now we are all set in Dinstar configuration, now we need to create SIP trunk /carrier and dialplan in asterisk to dialout and dial in.

In Your asterisk or vicidial use the below SIP turnk configuration 
either enter in sip.conf or admin> carriers in gui

[dinstar]
host=192.168.29.213 ;---this is dinstar IP
type=friend
context=trunkinbound
disallow=all
allow=aulaw,alaw,gsm
insecure=port
dtmfmode=rfc2833

DialPlan 
For vicidial outbound dialplan

exten => _9X.,1,AGI(agi://127.0.0.1/call_log)
exten => _9X.,n,Dial(SIP/dinstar/${ETEN:1},,Tto)
exten => _9X.,n,Hangup()

For Asterisk
exten => _9X.,1,Dial(SIP/dinstar/${ETEN:1},,Tto)
exten => _9X.,n,Hangup()

For inbound
In Vicidial Create a DID as 3000300
or use below dialplan in asterisk
[trunkinbound]
exten => 30003000,1,Answer()
exten => 30003000,n,Dial(SIP/1001)
exten => 30003000,n,Hangup()
