Am using asterisk 1.4.* with Ast* GUI on Debian Lenny. My dialplan _2547.(dot) works fine but this is prone to errors incase someone dials more than 12digits. To counter this, i replace with this dial plan _2547ZZZZZZZZ but fails with an error “Call from extension xxxx to the dial plan rejected because the extension not found.” What might be the problem?
How can i make the Ast* tell a person that “the number you dialed is not the correct format”, kind of prompt? Sort of custom voice prompts executed when a certain error occurs.
