I received my TDM400 card yesterday and have so far had fairly good luck, the installation went smooth on my Fedora Core 4 system.
So far I’ve been trying out a variety of scenarios, the one thing I’ve had no luck with is getting caller ID to work. I have one FXO module in port 4 of the TDM400 and two FXS modules in ports 2 & 3. I have connected a Philips Onis 200 Dect Base station into port 2 and port 4 into my BT phone socket.
The Philips phone has various CID configuration options to allow for different operator scenarios (I had to alter this in my last house to get it working with Telewest) and I’ve tried each of these options in turn. In each case when I initiate a call from my mobile phone to the pstn number, I see errors like that below in the Asterisk console:
Oct 18 19:55:58 NOTICE: chan_zap.c:5816 ss_thread: Got event 2 (Ring/Answered)…
Oct 18 19:56:00 WARNING: chan_zap.c:5856 ss_thread: CID timed out waiting for ring. Exiting simple switch
Oct 18 19:55:22 WARNING: chan_zap.c:3897 zt_handle_event: Didn’t finish Caller-ID spill. Cancelling.
The error varies depending on what operator type I set on the Dect phone.
I notice in each case, the following is displayed at the start of each incoming call:
== Starting post polarity CID detection on channel 4
I’ve cut the configuration right down to the bare minimum to avoid confusion; I’ve listed below my zaptel.conf, zapata.conf & extensions.conf files:
exten => s,1,Dial(Zap/2)
If anyone’s seen similar issues and knows a solution, I’d greatly appreciate your feedback!
