Elastix Endpoint Manager


Update 18 June 2010

Andrew the developer of the FreePBX endpoint manager has come on board to help us build the new endpoint manager. He has already added support for the Linksys/Cisco handsets for those out there using the Linksys SPA range. We will keep moving forward with the development, however with very few donations and no vendor support it will be a rocky road ahead.


Original Post 

For a long time Elastix has lacked a good endpoint manager. The current endpoint manager is very good but it lacks a lot of settings which could make the endpoint manager a valuable tool to Elastix. Many Elastix users out there waste hours and hours of time provisioning their endpoints. Going into every phone and configuring each phone is tedious and is time we could be out making more money. Setting up the endpoints is normally the most time intensive part of building an Elastix system. With a good endpoint manager we can put all this behind us.

I am looking to develop a new endpoint manager. It will look to include the following features

  • Provision many different vendors such as Linksys/Cisco, Snom, Aastra, Yealink, Polycom
  • Provision all functions on each phone. This includes extension, all BLF buttons and regional settings
  • All settings held on the Elastix machine in a mysql database
  • Phones will grab all their settings TFTP
  • Endpoint manager will be able to scan for extensions and provision
  • Endpoint manager will be able to create a TFTP file so that the phone can be sent to site and it will be completely provisioned remotely
  • Multilanguage support


What does this mean for you?


With a good endpoint manager this will mean less support issues for vendors. It will make it easier for users to setup and use their IP phones. Vendors will have to do less support and the users of their phones will not have to have high end technical skills to use the best features of the phone.

Elastix Users

This will save you time, whether you are installing 10 phones or 100 phones. It will also make setting up phones very easy.


What is needed from Vendors and Users?

We need you to contribute. To build a decent module that will support many different types of phones we are looking at a budget of about $10000.00. If everyone can get together we will be able to build this and it will make installing Elastix better for everyone. All code developed for this project will be given back open source to the Elastix project.



I have put together a scale of contributing. Not everyone can contribute a lot of money but if everyone can put in then it will help us get to the goal of $10000.00. The following sponsorships are available

Gold Sponsorship – $1000.00

Silver Sponsorship – $500.00

Bronze Sponsorship – $100.00

I am behind this project 100% and have put up $1000.00 to get the ball rolling. To donate to the project you can contribute to the paypal account – elastixprojects@mbit.com.au. Once you have contributed please let me know via email on mark@mbit.com.au

Total remaining – $8900.00



MBIT Technologues – $1000.00

Sunshine Networks – $100.00

Hitec Solutions – $100.00


 Thank you for all who contribute. We are looking to make a great new feature for Elastix that will benefit everyone.

    Be careful tkaing medical advice from Yahoo Answers.Some of the answers to your last question were bizarre, especially the one about masturbation causing torsion of the testis.One testis larger than the other may be a result of mumps, but you should seek proper medical advice about this in your case.Sperm count tests involve examining a fresh semen sample. They are not expensive as tests go, but obviously require some privacy to produce. Talk to your doctor about this.

    It’s a very wise answer of Mr/s Snout.The first feltirity test commonly performed in order to diagnose the cause of male infertility is the semen analysis test. Any problems affecting sperm shape (morphology), sperm movement (motility), or sperm count will require a semen analysis test. The cost of infertility tests can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, depending on the sophistication of the required feltirity test.Good luck.

    Thanks for a great little pliugn, and for the news about and your attentiveness to the new twitter guidelines. I’m just trying to decide whether the developer version price is worth it for me for the Pro version. If I buy a single site license now, can I upgrade it to a developer version license later for the difference in price?
