Follow Me

I’m extreamly green on this Asterisk stuff. However, it is really cool. I’m hoping to have our 5 branch offices transfered over to Asterisk by this time next year. I will keep you posted.

Now, my question. I have been playing with the Follow Me function (command). I have in my dial plan

exten => s,1,Dial(${ARG2},20)
exten => s,2,Goto(s-${DIALSTATUS},1)
exten => s-NOANSWER,1,FollowMe(${ARG1})

Ok, so far so good. That kicks me over to followme.conf. This is where I get lost. From reading the default file I added

to my Followme.conf. But It just jumps to my voicemail and the log shows Unable to allocate a channell for local/5555551234@default Cause:Unknown.

Now if I put

exten => s-NOANSWER,1,DIAL(ZAP/g2/5555551234,10)
in my Extensions.conf file it will dial me if it gets no answer on my sip phone.

Where have i screwed up. Anyone.

I’m doing a demonstration this friday and would like to show off this function.

Where can I find more info on the Find Me Follow Me. I have searched everywhere.

Thanks Rob

Ok, I figured this one out for myself

I guess in the followme.conf under context you have to add a dialing rule. Did that, all works now.


I am having the same problem.

Can you please post the line you added in followme.conf to create a channel to place outgoing calls?
