Using Analog Phones


Hi folks,

A client wants to keep their old Inter-Tel KTS analog phones for budget reasons. Two questions:

CDR Default Table Specification?


I am using adaptive ODBC and I would like to create a table for the default CDR fields build into Asterisk. I managed to find several third party resources, but no official resource including the table specification for the default CDR fields.

Thank you very much :-)

It works for TLS from phones, but also for full federated SIP with any other SIP-enabled domain on the public Internet.

* repro does all the connectivity work (certificate validation, etc) and registration service

* Asterisk sits in the background and provides applications (voicemail, queues, etc)

Any feedback, questions or discussion about this is very welcome.
