Hey all, FreePBX Noob here.
I’ve got 2 systems - One’s a demonstration system with 8 Cisco 8841s I set up at the Career Tech Center I’m a student at, and the other’s being utilized for my job. We’re a business with a few remote offices and we’d like to interconnect them using means other than SMS or Facebook Messenger. The original plans are a central FreePBX Server at my office, a phone at my office, another at the main store, and a third phone at the office across town. The phones are going to be Cisco SPA504Gs. I can set up a extension within the office in my sleep, but what I’m struggling with is how to set up an extension to work from outside the network. I’ve had a ton of conflicting things told to me, so what’re the best ways to go about this? We’re also going to be adding softphones in the future, but if they’re of the same set of instructions as the Cisco phones, then that won’t be much of a problem.
