Feature requests & roadmap / Asterisk and the line identifier
« on: July 21, 2011, 10:40:40 pm »
I would like to make a feature request for asterisk, namely the ability to switch of the line identifier "9" or "0" for dialing. As far as I found out about asterisk, it is in most cases not neccessary to prepend a "9" or "0" in order to get a line for dialing. I can only speak for the European continent, that standard local numbers are at least 4 digits long. While there may be a number of people out there with only three digit local phonenumbers, they are more or less dying out, because numbers like that are no longer given out for new phonelines.
So I think it would make things a bit easier, if for numbers not in the phonebook, if asterisk would be transparent to the user and you could just dial the number without having to remember the additional number. It would mean, that any number that is longer than three digits gets a line automatically.

:-) a feature request it will be then...
while it is true, that the article doesn't explicitly say anything about minimun length of the phonenumbers, three digit phonenumbers -at the very least in germany- are a thing of the past, because there won't be any new ones like that given out. check this out from 2009 :

Anyways, I'll put in a feature request and we'll see if it becomes a reality.

so you have a phonenumber, that does not comply with the standard phonenumber plan for germany....interesting would be interesting to know if its possible to switch off of the line identifier, if its not needed....I guess that would be a feature request?

in that case, I suggest trying irc again, perhaps tschak would be the most knowledgeable about that

Hi Purps,
check the screenshots below--those are the settings for the phone in my core. I don't know however if you can actually create  a working extension there, or if it all has to be done by script. On the other hand maybe its worth a shot

just to make sure we are talking about the same thing: an are code is in front of a phonenumber, or local number. So if you want to make a local call, like calling your neighbor, then you would only need to dial the local number without countrycode or areacode, right?
for example a number in germany with canoncial format would look like this : 0049 1111 222222 (countrycode areacode localphonenumber)
As far as I know there is no local number with only three digits. The only three digit numbers are emergency call numbers like 911,110, 115, etc. That is something the dialplan can take care of, if Asterisk doesn't.
Just for reference check

Anyways, thats the way I have set it up and so far its working quite nicely

I suggest taking it one step at a time. Get your orbiterphones working and then we'll look at the gigaset.
I also had some problems with the "your number cannot be completed as dialled". It usually has something to do with the format of the phonenumber.
Like I said before, I do not really understand why the "9" is automatically put in the dial plan as well as the wizard in the phonebook. Perhaps there are some "historical" reasons for that, because it was maybe needed to distinguish internal calls from external calls, but that is no longer neccessary.
In my case I scrapped the whole dialplan and put only "X." in, which means it will just dial any number. Asterisk is intelligent enough by now to tell on its own, if you want to make an internal or external call.
But like I said, get your orbiterphones to register properly and then we'll take the next step.

The warnings are nothing to be concerned with....but compare my screenshot to yours...notice the difference?
I think your phones were not created properly, thats why you cannot use them. Talk to the guys on the irc, maybe they can tell you what script has to get a kickstart from you

as promised, check the attachment

hmm..since you had it working in previous installations....have you tried talk to the guys at the irc about it? perhaps its an issue with the new asterisk package they created...with the last update they said they had cooked their own asterisk-package now...

okay, as far as I understand:
1.) regardless of having registered an external phoneline, phones will be set up. Any MD has  an integrated phone, which will be setup and registered automatically.Those phones could for example be used as an intercom. If you set up an external phoneline, then your "intercom" becomes a real telephone.
2.) if you want to use your gigaset together with LMCE, you need to set it up manually in LMCE first. As far as I know, there is no template yet for this specific phone.
So in order to set up your phone go to webadmin->phones->add device. From there you have to pick a template- either your phone is listed, or you use "Generic SIP softphone". This wil create the proper phone for you. You will then have a phonenumber and a password.
3.)if you have done the above steps, you open the website for your gigaset and there you select an ip-connection (don't know with yours, but with mine I can define up to six connections) With this connection you use the phonenumber as both number for the extension as well as username.
as for notifications, you probably need to do this in two steps:
webadmin->telecom->call routing. There you can define what phones will ring for at home, do not disturb, away and sleeping
the other one is to edit the settings for the phoneline: once you have successfully registered a line with automatic configuration (for me did actually work) you can click on settings. There you can change settings for armed-at home, armed-away, entertaining, sleeping and unarmed-athome. So this will give you proper notifications and you can select, that for example when watching TV or movie, you send your callers to a specific extension or straight to the mailbox

I hope this will help you along a bit. But first I guess you have to get your asterisk running properly, or did you happen to fix it now?

Installation issues / Gigaset 610 IP
« on: June 28, 2011, 12:18:56 am »
From what I saw so far perhaps Gigasetphones are getting a bit popular with linuxmce.
I just got a Gigaset 610 IP...and I was wondering if it was at all possible to get it to use the phonebook in asterisk.
Also, I was wondering how difficult it would be for an embryo like to perhaps create a template for this far I have no real idea of whats needed for that.

Or even better, get 1004. Wink


are you saying its so far ready for everyday use?

it looks like there are a  lot of updates being pumped out right now...are there any current plans to include this one too?

I just tried it out and it works nicely on my MD. Though the nvidia driver complained during install, that the x-server was running and that causes installation to fail.
However I was able to watch a beforehand unplayable mkv.
Great job :-)

Installation issues / Re: SoftPhone Fails to register with Asterisk
« on: April 25, 2011, 10:50:44 am »
okay, I'm one step further now. it seems an update to my internetrouter somehow screwed up dns. that seems to be working now, though my messenger still doesn't work, but that could be unrelated. However I noticed one odd thing- the phones only seem to come online, when my MD has started. Then freepbx shows me 5 phones online. On the other hand, shutting down my MD lets me keep my functionality, but freepbx doesn't realize, that now one phone is offline..still shows 5 instead of 4 now.

It seems like I did solve my problem, but I have only a faint idea about the why.
My setup is the following : my router (fritzbox) connect to the internet and my core is connected directly to that. Ever since I'm using Linuxmce I used a static IP-address for that connection. As I found out some weeks ago, I made a mistake about DNS- it was set to the IP of the router instead of the core, but it was working. When I found out my mistake I changed the settings for the DNS to the IP of my core, but left everything as static.
I did some checking on my router and found a setting for the dhcp there to always assign the same address to the core. Now I went to the core and changed the network setting to use dhcp, which in theory wouldn't really have made much of a difference. Imagine my surprise, when I checked in Freebpx to see all my Phones online and working.
The only two problems I have now is that somehow surfing is a bit of a drag, since I have to request every page at least twice before the page actually loads, nslookup returns first a timeout of 2 seconds and then gives a result. The other problem is, that I cannot connect to windows messenger anymore.
