Hi FPBX / SangaomaOS people:
This is just a thought process I was having.
I just wanted to know if in theory or practice IF what I’m mentioning is do-able …for FreePBX / SangomaOS.
Using SangomaOS (built from .ISO) (hosted PBX)
(no local LAN for phones)
all endpoints / extensions are “remote” from the PBX.
Using PJSIP / UDP / port 5060
Can extensions be created / setup to work using only their IP address as an ACL (like trunks / circuits / peers can be built)?
No secret required: just match on the IP address.
No registration password (secret) would be required for the endpoints.
I guess in this case, the endpoints do not register, but rather are allowed by the ACL = public IP addresses.
I don’t want to do this: but I wanted to know if it is possible?
I might want to test it to see if in practice it could be done.
Also, what if it is possible to do this … using only an ACL for the extension, but the extension does have something populated in its password field: and sends this with its SIP traffic.
Would we need to tell the phone NOT to send any password, or would the password(s) just be ignored by the PBX because it is setup to “authenticate” using just the public IP address of the endpoints.
What is one example of why this might be needed?
Say you had to rebuild a PBX from scratch and you did not have the original password(s) the remote phones are using to register.
Say you do not have remote access to (10) phones all at various locations / sites …
Say the users do not have their web interface password …
They would have to factory reset and rebuild their phones …
Thanks for your replies.
