Some question about SFA?

Postby kibeki » Tue Aug 04, 2009 8:08 am

I played a little bit with SFA and it works rather fine. I was able to place an outgoing and incoming call.

- disadvantage no 1: can't use existing Skype user
- how can I dial my buddies without statically integrate them into my dialplan?
- how to to set the outgoing skypeuser dependend to my SIP-account?
- how to dial skypenames from my SIP-phone (soft/hard)?

Maybe some of you can give a little light into my lack of knowledge.

The way its working for me was to add..

exten => ...,1,Dial(Skype/${EXTEN})

To extensions_custom.conf. Then to dial a skype buddy, I just do..


I'm sure there are better ways of doing it, but it works for me now.

All IP phones should be alpha/numeric. In Xlite for example, I am able to just type the skype name and on my Cisco phones running SIP, you just hit the Alpha button.
