I hope that I understood what I was asking for. Sometimes I do not.
Yes, that is what I wanted to know. Does the implementation of the
transfer button feature on the Snomp-870 use exactly the same
technique as the ## feature code entered through the dial pad and
produce exactly the same SIP message that Asterisk produces when it
gets the ## DTMF?
The reason is that I wish to be able to detect a call transfer
performed via either method (## or <Transfer-Button>) and process the
result of both in the same fashion. If the button and DTMF transfers
are not performed using the same switching techniques in Asterisk then
I need to discover what those differences are. If both are totally
equivalent from a SIP message signalling point of view then the issue
is far easier to handle.
I searched, in vain, in the Snom-870 docs for specifics on this and
either could not find or did not recognize anything that applied. Do
you know where I can locate these sorts of details. My knowledge of
SIP/RTP/VOIP etc. is cursory but, given an adequate reference, I can
usually sort things out.
