I’m having a problem getting what I think is a basic function to work. I’m afraid I might be having a problem with the underlying concepts.
Here’s what I’ve got right now. I want to be able to use our paging system from the outside, so I’ve got a Windows box with a Dialogics card, and one phone line. A VB program takes the call, records it, hangs up, dials the paging extension, and plays it back. Simple.
If I can dump this one app, I can get rid of one of the last Windows servers. I want to be able to do essentially the same thing with Asterisk.
I’ve got a TDM400P card with one FXS and one FXO module. I got the demo script to work just fine. I’ve modified the extension.conf script so that dialing in answers the phone, and then tries to do a exten => s,2,Dial(Zap/1/60,10) - dial out through the FXO line to the paging system.
But it doesn’t work. It rings, and if I plug a phone into the FXO slot, the phone will ring, and if I pick up the phone, the two lines are connected together. But it won’t connect to the paging system.
Again, my fear is that I’m missing something fundamental. Any help would be appreciated.
