Outgoing call and ring timeout problem


#1

hI all,

I need a little help :smiley:

sorry for my bad english, i’m italian :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ve a x100p clone, asterisk v. 1.2.6 and zaptel 1.2.5. The my problem is:

In the outgoing I prefer that the call will hangup after two or more ring.

I have tried this configuration in extensions.conf :

exten => _XXXXXXXXXX,1,Dial(${TRUNK}/${EXTEN},20,tTo)

but don’t work … 20 seconds = 5 ring

in another case , i tried this one :

exten => _XXXXXXXXXX,1,Dial(${TRUNK}/${EXTEN},2,tTo)

it’s work but the timeout is very very short … 2 seconds = 0,5 ring

for me this is a very big problem !!!

it’s possible resolve this problem ??

it’s a bugs on x100p and zaptel driver ??

in the future i hope use a te110p digium wildcard pci e1/t1 …

I will have the same problem ???

Thanks for your help and support.

when you say “it doesn’t work” what do you mean ? the first dialstring is the same as the second but for the timeout, and you say the second works but is too short.

zap channel timeouts don’t correspond with ringing times, that depends on how quickly your telco connects and gives you ringtone. add that figure to the time required for 2 rings, and use that maybe ?

btw, you need the call answered within 2 rings … now that’s ambitious :smiley:

Thanks for your help … I the new bie aserisk user … you could help me to understand as to be able to settare one call answered within 2 rings or more ?


#4

sorry, don’t understand what you want. btw, your english is much better than my italian :smiley:

can you simply adjust your timeout setting in the dialstring until it gives you the required ringtime before giving up ? unfortunately, zap isn’t the best (!!) for detecting remote answer (depending on your hardware), so you have to compromise somewhere, or perhaps use a VoIP provider and a SIP or IAX2 trunk ?

sigh sigh … my :blush: my english is not very very very well :stuck_out_tongue:

I would have to make a call through pstn line ( analogic line ) and then the call if not ansewered within 2 or more rings, the asterisk hangup the line for to begin another call …

I would have need This for auto dialer applicatios …

ok. if your telco/zap hardware combination doesn’t support answer supervision, then perhaps you should seriously consider using a SIP or IAX2 trunk.

most zap installs i’ve seen report the channel as being answered as soon as the number is dialled, which doesn’t make too much sense, but is something you either live with, or work around … look at the BackgroundDetect application maybe ?


#7

how I can understand if I have requirement in order to use this type of configuration?


#8

which configuration ? consider using the quote button/functions to respond to a particular question/statement.

ask your telco if they provide a polarity reversal on answer ? then you could try adding answeronpolarityswitch = yes in zapata.conf

I presume that the italian telephone line supporting the supervision … therefore the polarity reversal on answer …[/img]

don’t presume anything. either ask them, or search the 'net. and even then, ask them.

if it’s important to you to use the zap trunks for this purpose, and you need to establish whether your system is going to work, then it’s worth a phonecall.

if they do provide a reversal on answer, and you still don’t get any luck with the X100P, then you next need to consider upgrading your hardware. ime, the Sangoma AFT200 works wells with answeronpolarityswitch, but my TDM400 doesn’t.
