I have an Asterisk server installed which is connected to a Lucent INDeX phone system in the UK. The original voicemail system died, so the Asterisk box was installed as the replacement. I have Asterisk working, but I need to work out an issue. Currently, I can’t figure out how to get Asterisk to know where the call originated. When connected to the Lucent voicemail solution, the INDeX system would send information via serial port (smdi?) as to which extension was being dialed. I need to try to figure out how to capture this infomation with the Asterisk box. Without this information, a caller would need to re-enter the users extension when he/she is routed to the Asterisk box. I am using a TDM808B card in the Asterisk server connected to 8 analog ports on the INDeX phone system.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
