I am pretty new to the SIP and everything which is related. But I have noticed 2 strange things in FreePBX(version is indicated in my signature):
- FreePBX doesn’t afford to save the NAME of the extension if it doesn’t consist of the number which contradicts the major security principals of the Asteriks, for example when I am trying to save the New Extension form of the Generic SIP device indicating the following User Extension value:
User Extension: d7634fg (which the Astriks manual book suggest to be even a MAC address device)
I receive the following error: Please enter a valid Extension number, the page assumes it should be only numbers which I believe is not correct. Those should be two separate field- Extension Number and Extension Name, shouldn’t they?
In any other case, to receive the Extension config similiar to this:
I need to edit sip_additional.conf all the time and reload configs and do that again and again even if I don’t even change the Extensions settings, since after clicking Apply button in FreePBX all configs,including SIP are regenerated.I can obviously use sip_custom.conf but what is the reason of using the SIP Extension creation form at all if I will be editing configs directly?
2) Second strange thing: Time Conditions are successfully created based on the Time Group, I can easily find them in configs BUT: where they should be connected to Inbound Routes. I found on the forum that somewhere in previous version of FreePBX there was a special field for that in Inbound Route creation page. Where has it gone?I have no such field on the Inbound Route creation page.See screen for this form, no any fields even nearly related to the time:
Can anyone comment on that?
