This module will give you the possibility to make the T300/500 PBX ready for multiline TAPI support, together with the Asterisk PhoneSuite.

The module will modify the manager.conf file and the iptables of the Linux system.

UPDATE: Entries for the IP tables are now entered already in line 5 and 6. Issue with too short iptables are now solved.


Multiline TAPIClient based TAPI (default)

With multiline TAPI support, the CTI application (server) is connected to the
PBX using the middleware of PhoneSuite.

On the PC of the user the CTI-client is installed which is connected to the
database- and CTI-server.

The middleware translates the command from the CTI-server (e.g. ESTOS)
into the format of the PBX system.

Within the default client based TAPI installation, the CTI application and
the CTI Client as a bundle must be installed on all PCs separately.

The CTI client searches the database for the right number and the CTI
application starts the call directly on the phone.


You only have to define the used settings for your environment in the module. The module will insert these settings automatically in the PBX filesystem.

Some additional steps with PhoneSuite and Outlook (optional) are necessary before you can use the complete solution.

You will find all instructions underneath.

Final Step:

Without that step, nothing will be changed on the PBX ! ! !
