I’m fairly new to all of this, so I appreciate any pointers!
I have about 7 phone numbers setup on my Asterisk box. The inbound routes are already setup so that specific extensions are rung if someone calls into certain numbers. Basically a typical direct line setup.
What I want to do is add a custom feature code that will allow an extension to place an outbound call that uses one of the 7 phone numbers I have. Let me draw a quick picture …
main line: 555-555-5551 (all calls outbound are from this number)
additional lines: 555-555-5552 through 555-555-5556
555-555-5552 -> always rings extension 710
when 710 makes an outgoing call, call always goes out from 555-555-5551
I want to make it so when 710 dials a feature code like *999 then dials an external number, the call goes out from 555-555-5552.
If I can’t do it with a feature code I also want to know how to set it up so that outgoing calls from 710 always go out on 555-555-5552, not the main number. This would be useful to know regardless.
I know my terminology is probably horrible, but I’m trying to get a point across.
