I don’t understand completely how to handle incoming calls. Hopefully someone here can help me grasp that concept.
At home I have a very simple setup. Just 1 external number, that people can use to call me. In extensions.conf, it’s handled like this:
exten => s,1,Answer() exten => s,n,GotoIfTime(09:00-22:30,*,*,*?downstairs) exten => s,n,GotoIfTime(22:30-09:00,*,*,*?downstairs:allphones) exten => s,n(downstairs),Dial(Local/2400@myhome&Local/2402@myhome,30,kKtT) exten => s,n,Hangup() exten => s,n(allphones),Dial(Local/2400@myhome&Local/2401@myhome&Local/2402@myhome,30,kKtT) exten => s,n,Hangup()
As you can see it’s even slightly more complex than average, because it only dials the phone in the bedroom during the night. Otherwise it would wake the baby, taking a nap during the day
So, only one external number and every incoming call is handled the same.
But what if there is a block of 100 external numbers? And every external number should call directly to a different phone? How do I handle that? I’ve been fiddling around with that on my home-setup. But it keeps complaining there is no s-extension.
Any help would be most welcome.
