Been fiddling with Asterisk some more at home. I’m working my way towards making it my only phone system. One of the things I came across was a SCCP driver. This would allow me to use the Cisco phones I already have without reformating them to SIP images. Sounds groovy! Except, it’s not quite as baked as I had hoped. It’s not bad, it’s just that I’m having a heck of a time figuring out how to do some stuff. Part of that is because of my lack of understanding of how Asterisk config files work. A larger part is the lack of good documentation. The one place I found good info is on the Asterisk Wiki but even that is lacking. For instance, the sample extensions.conf doesn’t jive with the rest of the sample configs. Once I get this figured out and working I might finally figure out how to edit the Wiki.
