How to restrict access to * for a specific soft/hard phone?


#1

Anobody gives me a tip how to recognize what soft/hard phone is in use for a call? I would like to allow access to * for those phones which have been tested and validated by me, e.g. calls allowed from X-lite but not from Linksys PAP2.

Thanks!

Perhaps just restrict them using extension contexts…

Or with username and secret (bouth SIP and IAX2).

I think of limiting access for selected phone model. I want to be sure that every user uses the same phone model, for example X-lite. I am afraid that username and secret will not check if the user uses X-lite or other phone. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Just out of curiosity… Why do you want to restrict them to a particular phone model?

I think of developing a softphone basing on GPL libraries. This softphone would have some extra features not available in any other phone currently existing on the market (at least I haven’t found anything similar). I want to be sure that my potential customers would access the system using my softphone. It simply means that I want to force them to use those extra features:-)

Sorry, I don’t know how to do that.

P.S.
I’m against forcing people to use any software. Let them chose by them own.
