Say, I have some SIP-devices defined in sip.conf
[livingroom] type=friend host=dynamic secret=NotEvenIfYouTortureMe! context=myhome [bedroom] type=friend host=dynamic secret=ThisIsWhereTheMagicHappens context=myhome
I have some numbers defined in extensions.conf, so I can call these devices
exten => 10,1,Dial(SIP/livingroom,30,kKtT) same => n,Hangup() exten => 11,1,Dial(SIP/bedroom,30,kKtT) same => n,Hangup()
Now, for incoming calls, from the trunk to my provider, I would use something like this
exten => s,n,Dial(SIP/livingroom&SIP/bedroom,30,kKtT) exten => s,n,Hangup()
I wonder if I can dial extension 10 and 11, instead of the SIP-devices livingroom and bedroom. For example
exten => s,n,Dial(SIP/10&SIP/11,30,kKtT) exten => s,n,Hangup()
This example doesn’t work, obviously. If it did, I wouldn’t have asked.
The reason I’m asking this, is that I’m struggling with pickup and BFL for some time now. It works from internal calls, but not for external calls. I think the reason is that in case of an external call, the call is send directly to the SIP-device. So, if I try to pickup extension 10 with the flashing BFL-light in the bedroom, it doesn’t work, because (as far as Asterisk is concerned) nothing is calling extension 10.
Sending an incoming call to extension 10 instead of SIP-device livingroom would solve that.
I could be totally wrong. If I am, please tell me how to fix this. It is driving me crazy!
