I’m trying to set up a small lab environment in my home with Asterisk, keeping cost and impact to the rest of the family to a minimum. I have an Asterisk 1.2 server with a Digium TDM400P with one FXS and one FXO module. The FXO module is connected to my one incoming phone line and I have an analog phone connected to the FXS port. Additionally, I have a FWD account (IAX-based) and one SIP softphone.
There are, however, other analog phones in the house that are still connected directly to the incoming line as well. So I’d like to be able to have Asterisk detect an incoming ring, wait x number of rings before picking up the line. If someone picks up one of the other phones in the house and, therefore, stops the ringing, Asterisk should do nothing.
Is such a configuration possible? I’ve tried things like NoOP, but while the other phones continue to ring, answering one of these non-Asterisk-connected phones does not work. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
