I just downloaded and installed the “official” chan-Skype from the digium website.
I got as far as handling incoming calls, which works well so far.
I am stuck at configuring outgoing calls.
The instructions in the installation files read:
Dialplan Usage - Outgoing Calls
Using SFA channels in Asterisk is very similar to other Asterisk
channel drivers, with a channel name prefix of ‘Skype’.
Dialing to a Skype name is a simple as:
exten => …,1,Dial(Skype/austin_powers)
Similarly, calls to SkypeOut numbers can be dialed just as if they
were Skype names:
exten => …,1,Dial(Skype/+12564286000)
However, there is one important note to remember: when calls are placed on the
Skype network, they are placed by a Skype name to their destination. This
means that when placing a call, SFA must select one of the defined Skype users
to be the ‘originator’ of that call; to control which user is used by default
for that purpose, you can set the ‘default_user’ option in chan_skype.conf.
Additionally, on a call-by-call basis, you can choose a specific user to be
the ‘originator’ of that call by prefixing the destination Skype name or
SkypeOut number with the originator’s name:
exten => …,1,Dial(Skype/[email protected]_powers)
This would result in user ‘james_bond’ placing the call to ‘austin_powers’.
Now, I am a GUI kinda guy so I have No Idea where am I supposed to configure the dialplan like that.
I am running Elastix 1.3 with the freepbx bit updated to 2.5.1
Any help will be greatly appreciated,
