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?

Vendors

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.

 

Contributors

    Hi Marsk

    The idea that I had, it was to detect automanically the device (vendor, model) and register it. With. A mixe of nmap and arp commands and compare these inforamations with the sip agent type into asterisk.

      Where did you get your definition of ttresvesaitns and cross dressers from doing it for sexual pleasure? That is nonsense. I suggest you google and read information from Trans people before you make statements that are just not true and use your personal view’s to exclude and alienate people.

    I would recommend you to check the Phone Provisioning functionality of sipXecs (http://www.sipfoundry.org) before defining the design specs.

  • Mark Brooker
    12:36 on June 10th, 2010

    Thanks for the suggestions Franck and Ali

    Franck – This will definitely be part of the model. Pulling information from FreePBX and using the phone data to bring the phone up with a couple of clicks.

    Ali – I have had a look at their spec and it looks very good. At this point we have a list of features we would like to start with but we need a budget to start developing. Palosanto cant develop everything and if the community cant come together then this project will fail.

    HI Chito

    Thanks for the reference. The endpointman module has come a long way since I last saw it. I will be contacting the developer to see if we can bring something together on this. I would not like to reinvent the wheel if i dont have to.

    I’m trying to use the endpoint manager to setup my phones for use with the system. I run the scan and the utility finds my phones correctly. So I then select a phone type, input the extension number, check the set box and click the set button as I assume you’re supposed to do.
    However, the page then reloads and nothing happens. The phone status still reads ‘not set’ and the phone type and extension fields are on the default settings just as if you came into the form fresh.

      As someone who had to give up cow dairy pdturcos because of an allergy even though I LOVE cheese, I found living with a food allergy to be more difficult in many ways than being a transguy. Having a food allergy means that I’m constantly reading labels & asking questions about what’s in things & I never get to take a day off because frankly no tasty treat is worth an ear infection or sinus headache. Yes, I like to whine about giving up dairy, but in many ways it is like my trans-ness. In both cases, I didn’t know I had this issue until I was about 40 years old even though I lived with both of them my whole life. Both issues affect my whole life, too.I like your analogy about different kinds of trans-ness & special diets. Not everyone eats the same kind of diet, and not everyone expresses their trans-ness the same ways. I have chosen hormones but not surgery. I have friends who are doing surgery but not hormones. I have other friends who are not doing surgery or hormones, but we’re all trans folks. I have another friend who is content to sometimes be a man in a dress (his words, not mine) because that’s all he needs. He’s still trans, though, and he comes to my support group.

      Dear Beth,My colonoscopy was on 5/10/11 and my srreguy was on 5/19/11. Finished my chemo in late November, cat scans and pet scans since then have been clear and my bloodwork has been normal. I just had my colonscopy last week, all clear, Thank God! Don’t need another for two years. The memories of the past year will never leave me and I know what you mean about things that trigger those memories. For me it was the smell of the antiseptic soap it was told to wash with before my srreguy. I had to throw all of it away.Just wanted to thank you again for your blog.

    I have successfully configured my Elastix 2.3 and was able to auto provision a Polycom IP501 phone without any issue. When I looked into the Phone’s config using the Phone’s GUI the SIP address for the phone was my Elastix IP address.

    I have configured my local DNS and external with an FQDN to point to the Elastix IP address and was wondering how do I go about putting the FQDN to the phone’s SIP Server Address field rather than the IP address e.g. change the configurator’s default behaviour of putting IP address to my FQDN permanently?

    I am not very keen on using any other endpoint configurator as this Elastix Box will be managed by an admin user who I dont want to play about with the backend or any other tools that much.

    I have searched the forum and googled but didnt find an answer for it. I would really appreciate your kind help on this.

      Hi Cam, This blog is not actually about diets and food retistcrions. Vegetarian and gluten-free diets are used as analogies for the various reasons people might not be able to or might not choose to undergo complete physical transition. Just as some people choose to be vegetarian for certain health or ethics reasons, some people choose not to transition due to certain health or ethics issues. Folks who must avoid foods with gluten do so because of a doctor’s order that diet was imposed on them for medical reasons; they didn’t choose it. In the same way, some people must avoid complete physical transition due to medical retistcrions. The fact that they couldn’t transition is not something they chose. So the point of the blog is that it’s unfair for someone who has fully transitioned to look at someone who has not and make judgements about whether they are really transgender since they can’t or won’t undergo the amount of physical change we would expect them to.

      Often, the excuses like “I don’t have a ride” or “my sietsr can’t help me this week” translate to “if you send me home today, I’m coming right back the the ER at 4am as a bounce back.” Sometimes its better to let people stay and save the expense and hassle.
