our assistant have cisco spa514g phone.
with a module for BLF buttons
we use freepbx with 4 PSTN lines.
Basically, All i want to do is to get this lines status if they are busy or free.
how to do that? I want to have 4 buttons 1 for each line, is such thing possible?
Monitoring a DAHDI channel is easy with a BLF, provided you don’t want the button to do anything when pressed. In the file /etc/asterisk/extensions_custom.conf add lines like these in the existng [from-internal-custom] section:
Reload the dialplan, then program a BLF on your phone with the code “*00001” (no quotes) and the BLF will illuminate whenever DAHDI channel 1 is inuse.
Would it be possible to have the BLF buttons indicate PRI status fro a DHADI card? i.e., green OK, red Alarm?
