I am configuring a small system that has an 8-channel (port) Digium card in it. Channel/port 8 is for a private incoming line. Channels/ports 1-4 are for the hunt group lines. I am trying to figure out how to make outbound calls start at channel/port 4 rather than channel/port 8 which is what is happening now. Inbound calls are working as they should, of course, since they come in on the four analog lines connected to the first four channels/ports. Thank you. I will continue to search the forum and google other online resources but have yet to come up with anything. Probably not wording my searches correctly.
NEVER MIND! Groups were wrong
But, actually, I would still like to have inbound calls go channels 1-4 and outbound calls go channels 4-1. Could one set up two groups with one group having channels => 1-4 and another having channels => 4-1. Probably wouldn’t work that way though would it. Could one set up each channel in a separate group and list them in reverse order in the dialplan for making outbound calls? Just thinking out loud…
In the Dial() command…
Dial(DAHDI/g1/5551212) will dial from group 1, searching for available channel from lowest channel towards highest
Dail(DAHDI/G1/5551212) will dial from group 1, searching for available channel from highest channel towards lowest
Thank you very much. That is what I was looking for. Figured it was probably something simple like that.
