Asterisk won't answer incoming POTS call


I am using Asterisk 1.4.1 and Zaptel 1.4.0 with an X100P PCI card.

The Zaptel driver side of things seems to be working OK (zttool shows the card, status OK, no current alarms).

I have been trying a very simply configuration - extensions.conf, zapata.conf, zaptel.conf are shown below.

I cannot get Asterisk to pick up an incoming call on the X100P card, all I get is the following which repeats roughly every ring:

[Mar 3 14:58:46] NOTICE[3058]: chan_zap.c:6327 ss_thread: Got event 18 (Ring Begin)…
– Executing [s@incoming:1] Echo(“Zap/1-1”, “”) in new stack
== Spawn extension (incoming, s, 1) exited non-zero on ‘Zap/1-1’
– Hungup ‘Zap/1-1’
– Starting simple switch on ‘Zap/1-1’

This continues until the incoming caller hangs up.

With the configuration below, I was expecting Asterisk to answer the call and run an echo test.

I’d be grateful for assistance in solving this issue.


[root@webmail asterisk]# more extensions.conf [incoming] exten => s,1,Echo ;for testing the connection ;exten => s,1,Playback,demo-thanks ;for playing a file

[root@webmail asterisk]# more zapata.conf [channels] signalling=fxs_ks context=incoming channel=>1 ;X100P

[root@webmail etc]# more zaptel.conf fxsks=1 #X100P defaultzone=us loadzone=us

You need an Answer command in extensions.conf like so:


exten => s,1,Answer()
exten => s,2,Playback(tt-monkeys)
exten => s,3,Hangup()[/code]


Perfect. Thanks!

Hopefully Digium will add this to their simple config guide in the KB here:
