I am currently playing with a mixed SCCP Cisco and SIP configuration. Thanks to the help of Dave I was able to get those phones functional with chan_sccp_b. I am now trying to get the IVR and ring groups to work correctly. I see a definition in sccp_extensions.conf that refers to the call group and pickup group, as an integer. How does that integer correlate with any ring groups configured in the FreePBX GUI?
After some more playing, it seems like maybe it’s as simple as the numeric order in which they are created in the GUI? I haven’t found any config file as of yet but I’ll leave this out here if nothing else for anyone else to find in the future.
Right, I was more referencing the sccp_extensions.conf
where I was trying to find the correlation of that integer with the list of ring groups inside the freepbx GUI, “Applications -> Ring Groups”
As of now, I defined two groups, put extensions in that first group and they ring. This morning I was going to make sure the theory was correct by putting another cisco phone in call group 2, and seeing if the second ring group in the list rings that phone.
Which as of now, seems correct. Integers seem to match the order of the ring group list.
Hah, well then that explains it. I probably won’t be bothering with ring groups anyway, queues seem to make more sense in the long run, coupled with an IVR. At some point soon I’ll have to consider the security implications of these things over a WAN. That’s another post, thanks Dave.
