Hello! I have installed Asterisk on a Ubuntu box, my “show core version” returns this from CLI:
Asterisk 13.11.2 built by asterisk @ jserve on a x86_64 running Linux on 2016-10-22 17:48:48 UTC
I have two “test” DID numbers and I would like to learn how to do this VERY SIMPLE process…
A user takes their cell phone and dials one of my test DID numbers, pretend, 17274204201. This then starts ringing my personal number, 17272660666, allowing me to answer them and have a conversation.
My problem is I have very limited test usage of these DID numbers and do not want to waste them with some errant configuration or something.
I’ve configured my asterisk IAX.conf and sip.conf to what my DID provider has recommended on their website. I’m fairly certain that information is accurate…
That leaves me with the extensions.conf file…
There is an example I used, and I barely tested it, enough locally to dial my own number from it and get a busy signal, I guess indicating that it worked.
What does the extensions.conf file look like, as an example, for having my DID number, 17274204201 “forward” the call to 17272660666?
Any help is appreciated. I’m sorry this is such a n00b problem. If you’d like to link the proper documentation or tutorials that might help me out, I’d much appreciate it. I’m attempting to use a fairly common DID number provider and I’d bugger them about this, but this problem is really just related to me not understanding asterisk.
Thanks in advance!
