Call forward (*72 and *73) on multiple lines

I currently have the phone feature *72 on my server set up like this:

exten => 72,1,Dial(Zap/5/ww72ww4821928) ;enable call forwarding on carrier side
exten => 73,1,Dial(Zap/5/ww73ww4821928) ;disable

When this is currently set, it dials the number automatically. I was wondering if there was a way to setup this feature and have it forward all zap channels?

Can you tell me menaing of w in ur Dial cmd?
is that same Dail cmd option or anything else & whay ur using that as per your requirement?


To my understanding the w is a wait command. I was told they are good to use to allow enough time for the phone lines to pickup on the zap channels.

You could probably do,

exten => 72,1,Dial(Zap/1/ww72ww4821928)
exten => 72,2,Dial(Zap/2/ww72ww4821928)
exten => 72,3,Dial(Zap/3/ww72ww4821928)
exten => 72,4,Dial(Zap/4/ww72ww4821928)
exten => 72,5,Dial(Zap/5/ww72ww4821928)

but if your lines are in a hunt group from the phone company,then you could just do the *72 on the lead line and it will work for the rest.

I would just do it on the main line, but caller id shows on the individual lines. So when local go out, the individual lines show up on the destinations caller id. It makes it a real pain when forwarding the main line.
