White papers or success cases to convince a customer?

Can anyone recommend some White Papers or Success Cases that we can use
to ease the mind of a customer that has not heard much about Asterisk? All
they know is Avaya at this point.

Removing Polycom Transfer Softkey

Sorry for the crosspost. This was supposed to be on -users

I know some of you are polycom gurus…

Anyone know how to remove transfer from a polycom 33x phone? We’ve set
allowtransfer=no, but we would like to remove a polycom soft key as well.

Back-to-back asterisk PRI issue

Following is my scenario to connect back to back PRI of two asterisk server. PRI cards are Sangoma A102D

[Asterisk1]————[PRI]-Cross Cable———[Asterisk2]

Asterisk1

; Span 1 (MASTER)
switchtype = national ; commonly referred to as NI2
context = from-pstn
group = 0,24
echocancel = yes
signalling = pri_net
channel => 1-23

Asterisk2

; Span 1
switchtype = national ; commonly referred to as NI2
context = from-pstn
group = 0,24
echocancel = yes
signalling = pri_cpe
channel => 1-23

Following is my extensions.conf stuff on both machine (extension number could be change)

[from-pstn]
exten => s,1,Answer()
same => n,Playback(hello-world)
same => n,Hangup()

[from-sip]
exten => _7XXX,1,Answer()
same => n,Dial(SIP/${EXTEN})
same => n,Hangup()

exten => 7527,1,Dial(DAHDI/G0/7527)

But i am getting following error when i am calling from A to B

reload command not availeble asterisk 1.8.x

Hey Guys!

I have two asterisk 1.8.3.2 same version on both machine but why one asterisk has “reload” command but other doesn’t ?

Has anyone had any luck getting this phone up and running on an asterisk
server, most noticeably a Trixbox installation?
