Cisco IP Phone

[[User::Shkoo|nils]] donated a Cisco IP Phone for use with the space. It can make outgoing calls to US Numbers through asterisk running on pony using adi's voicepulse account.

You can call internal extensions as 4-digit numbers starting with "2". The only two that are really active are "2463" which is the red payphone (specifically port 2 on the VOIP adapter that it's normally connected to), and 2467 which is the Cisco IP Phone.

You can call US numbers by dialing 9, then 1 and 10 digits. It's pretty flexible so you shouldn't have problems using it. 911 service is not available.


  • Some members have expressed a desire to setup a payphone out front of 83C that can make free calls using VoIP to anywhere, but some members have raised objections that said phone outside would be too much of a liability and suggested it move inside.
  • An awesome old red payphone was donated on Dec. 9th. NBers quickly got to work opening it up and figuring it out. It's missing some bits and but will be put into operation soon enough.
  • Currently (2009-07-09), do not connect the red payphone's VOIP adapter to the network. The first port tries to register with adi's voicepulse account so it disrupts the asterisk setup. Once the first port is configured not to do that, the red payphone will be OK to use again.

Land line

For safety it would be good to have a single land line that can call 911 and doesn't depend on having power or Internet access. Could we do this? Schoen 00:48, 4 October 2008 (PDT)
