I understand that this is asterisk however I am trying to get the softkeys on my Cisco 8841 IP Phones and have seen a website http://usecallmanager.nz/sippeer-options.html. An issue is that it doesn’t specify where the code should go or if a new context should be used. Currently, all phones are on from-internal and adding the codes to the extensions.conf. Has anyone know where the code should be?
I have patched asterisk 13.32.0 so that the Cisco 8841 IP Phones will work with asterisk.
Please do not say that this is not recommended as I understand that many people have got this to work.
All custom dialplan needs to go into extensions_custom.conf. Even after reading the page you linked, I don’t understand exactly what you are trying to do, but editing extensions.conf will ultimately fail as FreePBX controls that file.
Cisco 8841 has a non-CUCM (third-party/multi-platform) firmware that may be better suited for use and require less custom work.
I am trying to setup the call forwarding, conference, pickup. In the phones configuration, it is set to supposedly call x-cisco-serviceuri-*** however I am unsure how to set this up within asterisk so that these features work.
We’ve had a few people report plenty of success with the software using many different versions of these phones. Installing the software requires up recompiling of Asterisk and leaves the phones in the native software version.
Dietrich has actually been doing a lot of work to support the SIP versions of these phones as well. I don’t know the extent of that work, since I don’t own any 88xx phones, but I do know that there were several “SIP ONLY” phones listed as supported at the beginning of 2019 (when I last looked in detail).
It’s worth a try - it’s an hour experiment and Dietrich is pretty good about adding the additional support required for even the silliest stuff…
