IAX support remote pickup?


I can use *8 to pickup a call (ringing) from another phone, both of them are connecting to the FXS interfaces of the Digium card. Remote pickup the phone of the same group is work for FXS interfaces.

However, I can’t do that with IP phone which is connecting to Asterisk with IAX protocol. Yes, I have setup the same pickupgroup for these phones already.

Other than pickupgroup parameter, what parameters should I put inside the iax.conf?

Thanks & Regards,

I have the same question and it would be great to find an answer somewhere.

Anybody ?

Checkout the Pickup() application instead. Allows you to pickup calls across technologies.

Yes, of course, but that’s not the same usage, IMHO.
With Pickup application, you have to choose extension to pick.
With native pickup, you just have to pickup, and you will get the extension ringing.

And the real question was “Is it possible, or not, to use this pickup (*8 native) with IAX ?”.

As you said it works very well for sip users, but not for IAX.
iax.conf doesn’t accept callgroup nor pickupgroup.

Any help?
