    Hi All,

    We use openfire as the presence server for Elastix users running off the same server. Now we recently started targetting customers with multiple sites seprated by MPLS WAN.

    This poses many challenges for us, one of these challenges is the ability of users at multiple sites to view Presence status of each other given that they are registered to different Elastix servers.

    Scenario: a company with three offices with 10 users each, each office has its own Elastix server (running IAX trunks between the servers for inter-office calls). Users can see presence status for other users within the same office but obvioulsy not other users in other offices.

    Is there a way to get all users within an organisation to see each other's presence even though they are using different servers? I think not, but there must be a work around, possibly configure the main server at HQ as the only openfire server and add all other Elastix servers to that one as source of user status (on the phone, off the phone etc...)

    Has anyone done this before?

    thanks
