# key issues


It’s been a long time since I’ve worked with Asterisk, so I apologize, I know this is a basic issue but I’ve forgotten how to deal with it.

Throughout my dialplan if a user hits the # key the system hangs-up (in inbound SIP calls).

Is there a way to ignore the pound?

Is there a way to ignore extensions overall that aren’t dealt with explicitly?

Thanks in advance!


I’m a noob so I don’t know if this is still right about the # problem, but for the other extensions, create extensions for each of these scenarios that you want to catch.

The i extension probably catches the #.
