Remote presence monitoring


#1

I’ve got a client that has two offices connected via vpn. One of the offices has a dedicated receptionist while the other only has 3 people in it. They want to be able to tell if someone in the other office is on the phone. I know I could do this with presence monitoring/buddy monitoring/whatever it’s called but I’m thinking these offices are each going to have their own servers because I don’t feel I can rely on their vpn to stay up all the time. Can I set up presence monitoring (or whatever it’s called) across servers?

Thanks for your help.

I use FOP for this see link

Thanks! I’ve looked at FOP before but haven’t had a chance to try it out. I’m going to get my second Asterisk test server set up later today and see how it works.
