We currently have 2 independent FreePbx phone systems in 2 different states, therefore 2 Different FOP2 modules. We are interested in combining those 2 FOP modules so that both office extensions will reside on one FOP2 Panel. They are on different networks but there is a tunnel between both locations. Does anyone know if you have any idea if this is feasible.
I have attempted contacting the FOP team over the phone, via email and via their site, all to no avail. Is there anyone who knows of how we can contact them or who can assist in achieving this goal. Thanks for your assistance in advance.
Not easy to do.
I know you can run fop2 on a different server than where your Asterisk server is, but if that works over the internet, not sure.
You would probably have to add the extensions on your second server to fop2 manually, or add them as custom extensions on the Asterisk server fop2 runs on.
That sounds like exactly what I need. In our case, since they are on 2 different networks with a tunnel between them. How do i get the FOP2 manager on one server to see the other server? Our goal is also to keep an eye on all phones and queues
Not total certain what you mean by “tunnel” My two systems are connected via a VPN.
You only need one FOP2 Manager, on the primary server. It uses AMI to get information from the remote server. I used the information on FOP2 Forums to get mine up and running. May be a good place to look. ( I browse those ones from time to time as well)
Side Note: There is a bug in 2.31.08 that prevents Remote Server Queue Button from working. Not sure if the fix made it into 2.31.09
