Dear FreePBX users and experts,
I been using FreePBX for quite a while and I have to admit I’m a very happy user of FreePBX.
However I still have some troubles till this day,
I got myself some Nortel 1140e SIP phones a while ago. And I’ve got these working with my FreePBX installation.
However the paging option from FreePBX to the Nortel 1140e phones, won’t answer on handsfree when I make an internal paging call to the phones. They just keep ringing…
So I took my time to read around about this and I found out together with some help that the issue that I’m facing is the different patterns and standard of the SIP paging header / alert-info are the cause of my phone ringing instead of answering.
So I read on the internet that someone with Polygom phones, that had the same problem with these not answering paging calls.
This guy describes how to change the alert-info for asterisk, however I could not figure out how to do it for FreePBX.
So I searched yet again and found this website:
With more information about distinctive calls and alert-info for calls.
However I’m unsure if:
- This information is up to date.
- This information is correct.
- I find the tutorial hard to understand exactly what I’m supposed to do.
So I’m wondering if someone has some suggestions on what I should do and which file and where I should edit instead of following a tutorial half-way knowing what I’m actually doing.
Thanks already for your time and answers,
