How To Share An Extension Between An IP Phone and Softphone?
Posted on 2008-09-30
I am looking for a way to share an extension between my IP phone and a softphone.
I don't want to get into a situation where they are fighting for the registration of the phone number, I would like it so that if I am out with my laptop my softphone can be connected with out it disconnecting my IP phone. So ideally the call could be answered on either the soft phone or the IP phone.
I know this can be done in Asterisk with a Call Queue, or ringing 2 different extensions at once, but what I want is 1 phone number that can be answered on both phones with out disconnecting each other and fighting for the registration. So essentially I want to share the "line" as it were.
Is this possible to do?
