Asterisk and Sipura SPA-2000
« on: June 29, 2007, 11:31:59 am »
How do you set up this sip to analog phone adapter to work with linuxmce? I got it to work with Asterisk all by itself, but linuxmce requires you to setup you phones and extensions through its admin website and I don't see an option for this.

Also I have two incoming phone numbers with two different broadvoice accounts. When I set up these as two phone lines it will only except one phone number. It will add both phone lines, but it will only allow one of those phone lines to have a phone number. When I add the number to the second line it wipes out the first number for the first line. Is this a bug? I can't believe that linuxmce only supports 1 phone number!

I'm almost at the point of just disabling all phone functionalities from the core and just running asterisk desperately. I know I'll be loosing a lot of functionality, but I've been without a phone for a while because of this and I need some that works...

Shortly after I sent this I figured out that I could use AMP found at Advanced->Configuration->Phone Setup to setup the multiple phone lines and adapters. This, however, did not setup the phone devices in the Wizard and also seemed to removed the Phone Lines entries in the Wizard.

Since it's really late I can't do much more testing on the phone lines. I was , however, able to verify that outbound calling is working, but inbound is not. For some reason Asterisk is detecting the wrong phone number. This did not happen with the standalone asterisk using the exact same register string... I'll work on it some more tomorrow...
