Presence Watching on Asterisk / FreePBX?


Has anyone got Presence Watcher to work on an FreePBX or general Asterisk install? I can see that the hints are there, but the phone shows a gray (unknown) icon. I suspect there’s some setting in the 2170 that I’m missing. Thanks!



I don´t know “presence watcher”, but it sounds to me as if you talk about BLF?
If so, just enter the freepbx / asterisk ip in the BLF-Server field in the account-config from the phones.
after this, all phones will show the blf-state in the corresponding lamps (beneath the VPK-Keys that are “programmed” as BLFs.
