Has anyone set up and extension to dial out to Skype account

Postby plandry64 » Tue May 10, 2011 8:47 am

Hi Everyone,
Looking at deploying SFA to my 1.4 system, to support remote users with Skype accounts.
This is probably a dumb question, but has anyone set up an extension to dial out to a Skype account?
Ideally a caller hits Asterisk, types in the the extension of my user, and the call gets routed to his/her Skype account.
I assume this would be simple call-forwarding, but I just want to do a reality check before attempting.
Has anyone successfully done this?
If so, any examples would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
Paul

Hi,

I created a skype trunk and now I'm able to dial 8+extension and I will call the skype account.
That gives me also the possibility of call forwarding to a skype account.
Is that what you are looking for?

best regards

Hi,
I have a good reference for setting up asterisk extension to skype from here - http://nerdvittles.com/?p=784. This one needs X Windows though, but I've managed to use it on our asterisk server.

SFA is end of life and the nerdvitals tutorial is also very old. there were lots of gateways about 3 years ago, maybe now that Microsoft is rolling MSN into skype things may start happening again
