Dial *73 to pots line using CLI?

Is there a way to dial out on a specific ZAP channel using the CLI. I need to turn call forwarding off on an AT&T pots line without driving 2 hours to plug in an analog phone and do it the old fashioned way.

Check this wiki.asterisk.org/wiki/display/ … _originate

And this voip-info.org/wiki/view/Aste … +originate


But I’m not sure I understand the syntax.

“originate Zap/1/123456 extension 400@greeting”

The example calls and extension. I need to call outside to the carrier. Can you give me some hints on how to dial to the outside?

originate calls the zap line (note zaptel is obsolete) before calling the extension.

The question is whether a standard configuration can address indiviual lines in a group. I imagine you can use Asterisk with a custom configuration.

Did you ever find a way to call outside?

Nope,…sorry. I had to make a 3 hour drive to the sight and do it with a handset.


with the originate you can do it:

The last line will use the zap channel number 3 and dial the number 22222222 and send the call to the extension 4000 at the context default.

The last line will use the zap channel number 1 to dial the number 22222222 and send to it the music on hold class default.

So if you want to send dtmf to an specific number you can try with:


I’ll put that in my logs for future reference.
