You complain about the behavior of others on this forum, but IMHO your own has been pretty poor. In your thread at Digium TDM2400P willl not dial out or receive calls , several members tried in good faith to help but were unsuccessful. Perhaps we didn’t ask the right questions or had insufficient knowledge. Eventually, you solved the problem yourself, but didn’t even have the courtesy to post the solution, which would be useful to someone else facing the same or a similar problem. Better, you should post:
- What turned out to be wrong.
- How you discovered what was wrong.
- Why you fixed it the way you did.
- If relevant, why it was hard (erroneous documentation, misleading error message, bad link, etc.)
This helps the makers of this fine hardware and software provide better documentation. It also helps those who answer to ask better questions and make better diagnoses. And, the thousands of lurkers who read this forum without asking or answering questions will learn something useful.
Next, when you post a log or other data, check that your post is easily readable; if not please edit it. If it gives me a headache to view, fat chance getting an answer. And if it’s longer than 100 lines or so, use http://pastebin.freepbx.org/ or a similar tool to reduce the clutter.
In defense of dicko, who is an awesome resource on this forum: Cisco phones are solidly built, very reliable, have excellent voice quality and a great feature set. Most fortune 500 companies use them, for good reason. President Trump said “These are the most beautiful phones I’ve ever used in my life.” https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/25/us/politics/president-trump-white-house.html . However, >95% are used with Cisco proprietary Call Manager systems and most of the rest are deployed by IT experts in large organizations. Unless your goal is to learn about these complex monsters, they are not for amateurs! OTOH, a cheap Chinese phone (Grandstream, Yealink, HTek, etc.) can be easily configured with FreePBX in just a few minutes; most readers of this forum can do this without consulting any documentation.
Back on topic:
In the phone, try setting SIP Proxy to
(replace 192.168.1.123 with LAN IP address of your PBX)
and use a short secret.
If no luck, I suggest that you shut down the phone and configure a softphone such as PhoneLite as extension 501. If you have trouble, report details. Once you get that working, you’ll know what configuration is needed for the Cisco and your ‘only’ problem will be learning how to get those values into your phone.
