"There are a few prerequisites to discuss before covering the configuration of Asterisk. First, my instructions assume that you have already installed Fedora 9. Second, you must have an existing LDAP server. The LDAP schema I use in this article is compatible with Fedora Directory Server. I recommend using the FreeIPA system to manage FDS. Fedora 9 provides packages for both FDS (fedora-ds-base) and FreeIPA (ipa-server). Finally, the machine hosting Asterisk must allow incoming UDP connections to ports 5060 (Session Initiation Protocol) and 69 (TFTP) to pass through its firewall."
