How to use PHP to reboot a Poycom SIP Phone

I’m knee deep into writing Voice Provision .04(VP4) for VoiceIP Solutions.  Why write another Asterisk GUI?  Because the Trixbox and Elastix software is way to convoluted and makes customization difficult.  They are not well documented and don’t attribute credit back to Asterisk or Digium.

How to setup the Asterisk 2.0 GUI with Asterisk 1.6

Recent versions of Asterisk 1.6 are compatible with the Asterisk 2.0 GUI.  This wasn’t always the case, as the Asterisk GUI was developed for the 1.4 branch.  Although I wish Digium had gone for the LAMP model, the GUI is pretty good and getting better all the time.  However the instructions to install are difficult […]
