Call blocking feature not fuctioning, advice?

To start off. I am using asterisk@home 2.7. I’m unning it on an old PII 450mhz system. Everything works fine, exept for call black listing feature.

When I dial *30 I get the prompt “please enter the number to be blacklisted” by the asterisk operator. I press 1 to confirm when it asked, and it prompts the “the number was succesfully added to the blacklist”. For a test run, I used my cell number.

I then called my home phone using my cell and it went straight through. I also tried adding it with the database command:

database put blacklist

And that didn’t work.

Any ideas?
