Change Commend server with FlinQ Status

If you have a redundant intercom system with a primary and secondary environment, it can be useful to know how you can change the connected intercom server by hand.

During normal conditions, FlinQ is connected to the primary intercom instance, when the primary instance is not reachable, the FlinQ server connects to the secondary instance if this parameter is set to the configuration.


If you experience problems with the intercom and FlinQ connection, it is possible FlinQ is listening to the secondary call numbers and the intercom control desk has a primary call number.
