IMHO many users don’t want the voicemail funct, but they want be able to access to the user portal (ARI) to see the CDR call list and the other stuff or, more easily, they want to activate-deactivate individually voicemail funct using a code on the phone, as in other pbx.
So far this feature has not been implemented in Asterisk/FreePBX: so I have implemented a very simple voicemail toggle, so a user can enable/disable the voicemail (like the Follow-me). Continue reading

In this post I will show you how to connect & configure one IpPhone Linksys SPA942 using an Asterisk Pbx 1.8: I hope this can help you with other similar IpPhones (Linksys SPA942 is in “End-of-sale “)
To start you have to verify the firmware version used by the phone: connect to the web interface on the IpPhone and check the info tab check.
I have installed a brand new pbx (using Pbx in a flash), all works fine, but I want to turn the working setup in RAID1.
Att.: With the new releases of the PiaF setup is no longer possible to perform a RAID installation (option ks_sataraid), and in spite of the usefulness of the raid on a pbx is much discussed (see link to the Pbx in a flash forum below). I prefer always to use a RAID1 in “important” installation and when the pbx will be used like file server too. And when it is not possible to use a RAID controller, I use Linux software RAID (it is, however, better than nothing !).
I found the how-to “How To Create A RAID1 Setup On An Existing CentOS/RedHat 6.0 System“ in how to forge (see link below), and in this tutorial I adapted it for our purposes.
