FreePBX 14 / Asterisk 16
We have an office with Digium D50 / D70 series phones, and with the Virus changing the world, the staff wishes to work from home.
The Digium BLFs are green when the real phones are online, and turn red when busy. When the phone becomes unavailable, either by network disruption or a power off, the BLF becomes dark. This is ideal behavior.
Unfortunately, if we have a softphone, either the Desktop Zulu Client, or one of the other softphone clients (3CX, X-Lite), the BLF button stays green all the time, unless the phone is in use, which it turns red. If the remote user closes Zulu or the other softphone application, or the VPN collapses, I would like the BLF to become dark, just like a real phone would.
I think this is a hint problem. Any suggestions out there on how to power off the Digium BLF light when the soft phone disappears, just like a hard phone?
