oops, I posted this by mistake in the General area, I am pretty sure this topic belongs here. Someone let me know if I have the ability to delete the other post, please.
Anyway… I have tried to do all my homework before coming here, but I’m just not finding my answer. I’m new to Asterisk.
I can’t make the blacklist work. I am using freepbx, but I have also tried just adding numbers manually on the asterisk command line. I can see that the asterisk database has the blacklisted phone numbers in it, but the calls are still getting through. Tried restarts, etc. I get the feeling the solution is a no-duh, but what am I missing? vvvvr tells me this or that file can’t be found, relating to the blacklist of course, but searches on those get me nowhere, so I am thinking now those might be red herring messages.
Also, for clarification:
Why is the “1” placed at the end of the phone number?
In the database there is a long space followed by a colon, and then I see the “1”… that’s just the way the database handles the trailing “1”, right?
Use ten-digit phone numbers, right? (I mean excluding the “1” at the end)
