I’ve got two Asterisk boxes set up for demos and so far things work great. The boxes are set up with an IAX2 trunk and my dialplans are set so phones on either box can call each other with no problems. What I’d like to do now is set up presence monitoring across the servers. I’ve got a crude version of it working now but I don’t like it.
Currently, I’ve got extension 102 (Snom 360 with side car) on my local Asterisk server. On the remote server I have extension 200 (X-Lite) set up. I can currently monitor the status of extension 200 from extension 102 but I had to add an entry for 102 in the sip.conf on the remote server for this to work. On top of that, if I hit the button for extension 200 the phone shows me the full sip path to the extension instead of just the extension number like the local extension monitoring buttons do.
I’m figuring this is because of the way I have the button programmed pulling presence information from my remote server. Is there a way to make the outgoing call to extension 200 show just the extension number so I don’t confuse any users? I’ve read the dual servers page on the wiki and I’ve searched the forums for answers but haven’t found much of anything on this subject. I do know I can use FOP and I’m also working on that.
Thanks for your help!
