I am looking for assistance.
Here is what I have.
Asterisk 1.4.8 loaded and running.
I also requested sample conf files at the time of the install.
Using wctdm24xxp with 1 FXO module installed.
I have a requirement of needing only 4 analog lines coming
from my local telco.
I have zero FXS modules installed.
I will not be using any analog phones. I am using grandstream IP phones
for all extensions. Hence, no FXS, module(s)
ztcfg -vv yields the following:
Channel 01 : fxs Kewlstart (default) (slaves: 01)
Channel 02 : fxs Kewlstart (default) (slaves: 02)
Channel 03 : fxs Kewlstart (default) (slaves: 03)
Channel 04 : fxs Kewlstart (default) (slaves: 04)
4 channels configured
Please note: I have not identified any FXS devices. I am not using analog phones in this system, only IP phones.
I have the first tip/ring pair coming directly from my local telephone tied to pin 1 and 26 (channel 1) OF MY wctdm24xxp card.
When I call the local telephone company number tied to my Asterisk box all I want to happen at this time is that the Asterisk box answer the call and hang up. Asterisk never answers the call. I have opened the connection at the asterisk box and can short the pair back towards the local telco and answer the call.
I am not using Asterisk now at this point. I have had problems with Asterisk now Beta 5 so I thougth I’d try the command line version.
With command line interface I am not sure where to enter service providers and incoming calling rules. I am thinking that without this information the call will not be answered. Someone told me that asterisk now is not reliable. This is why I am using command line 1.4.8 version of Asterisk. I am not sure the teller of this tale was accurate. Is Asterisk Now beta 6 ok to use? Any help with this lack of Asterisk not answering an incoming call would be most appreciated. I’ll build the extensions next.
