Newbie Question: how to handle incoming (PSTN) calls


#1

My cisco router forwards PSTN calls to the server 192.168.0.123, in which asterisk installed. How to configure asterisk to interacti with the PSTN call?

The asterisk deamon is running, when I dial xxxx, the router does forwarded the PSTN call. coz I tried OpenAM on the same server, it worked well.

Thanks in advance.

What is the Cisco Router routing to you that is a PSTN call? I presume this is some type of VoIP call coming from a PSTN/VoIP interconnection provider?

Additional background details are needed in order to understand what you are trying to do:

  • What is your Cisco Router?
  • What is it forwarded to your Asterisk server (ie - SIP traffic)?
  • Who is your provider that is sending you the ‘PSTN’ calls?

It’s cisco 3640/3660; another guy set up the xxxx number to forward the pstn calls to the server 192.168.x.x. I don’ t know the provider. I guess it’s SBC. I really cann’t answer your second question. What I knew is that when openam running on the server 192.168.x.x, I can call number xxxx to leave message.
