LDAP Account Manager (LAM) is a web frontend for managing entries (e.g. users, groups, DHCP settings) stored in an LDAP directory. LAM was designed to make LDAP management as easy as possible for the user. It abstracts from the technical details of LDAP and allows persons without technical background to manage LDAP entries. If needed, power users may still directly edit LDAP entries via the integrated LDAP browser.
Shift8 provides a simple mechanism for using the AJAM Asterisk interface in PHP. Apart from the obvious reason of providing an easy way to talk with a remote Asterisk server, the main benefit of having an intermediate library between your software and an Asterisk server is mostly that you can isolate the remote Asterisk, protecting the credentials and the entire PBX.
Asterisk Presence Panel is a simple application that allows the user to monitor the status of extensions on multiple Asterisk based PBX systems. The application connects to the Asterisk server using the manager interface. When it starts, it uses a manager command to probe the status of the extension, after which it relies on the extension status messages in the manager session to update its status. The application features contact groups, the ability to click to dial a contact, computer driven dialling for any number, the ability to connect to multiple Asterisk servers, and integration with the system tray on supported platforms.
