It may seem a silly question, but I have a simple server here that a friend setup with asterisk when I had high-speed dsl. I’ve moved recently and no longer have access to highspeed internet of any sort (without getting a satellite or radio link).
Presently I run a rooming house and run my own business besides the rooming house and have 1 or 2 lines only. Only 1 line in the house is good for a internet connection over 20Kbps (pity me please) so I have to forward it to the other to be able to get a reliable connection.
Now, the question.
I want to have the asterisk after the caller navigates the menu, to tell the phone it sends the call to, the following. (initially there will only be 1 ext)
- This is the raw phone number that called the server
- This is who the caller wants to speak to
- (less likely) this is the phone number that was called to get the server…
Can asterisk be setup to do this? I know its possible as I worked in a call centre that had the data come up like this on the phone system.
[My Company / name of person being requested] (so I can answer the phone ‘thank you for calling my company’, or ‘hey, how you doing’)
555-555-5555 (so I have a record of the raw phone number for review)
is there a add-on script or a tutorial on how to do this with asterisk? Can you point me to the section, or webpage so I can grab it? Please?
p.s this is for a regular analog phone, not a designed for voip phone. will I need to change to the voip type phone to accomplish what I want?
