Extending ring time on A@H


#1

Hi,
I currently run an Asterisk@Home 1.5 box. Great setup, works a treat.

However I would like to extend the ring time before a call is forwarded to voicemail. There doesn’t seem to be anything in the AMP gui, I’ve had a look in the conf files, but can’t seem to find anything obvious.

If anyone can help me with this it will be greatly appreciated

Regards,
Adrian

Not sure about A@H, but in terms of Asterisk have a look at the Dial cmd:

voip-info.org/wiki-Asterisk+cmd+dial

  • Dial(type/identifier,timeout,options,URL)

Specifically the timeout, so a dial string like this:

exten => s,1,Dial(SIP/extension|30)
exten => s,2,Voicemail(u${extension})

Will time out after 30 seconds and proceed to the next step, adjust as appropriate.

Thanks for your help.

Not exactally sure what the go is with A@H yet, but extensions.conf file doesn’t have exten => s,1,Dial(SIP/extension|30) type lines in it.

I managed to track down a Variable in the extensions_additional.conf file called RINGTIMER that I changed.

“General Settings” under the “Dialing Options” heading at the top of the screen, is where the ring time is set in A@H.

e.g.
“Dialing Options
Number of seconds to ring phones before sending callers to voicemail:
xxx”
