I have Asterisk 1.0.8 (as seen when doing an ‘asterisk -r’ command) installed on FreeBSD with a generic X100P clone card connected to my Lingo VOIP line (the only VOIP provider that I could find with a local number in my area).
Everything is working fine except for detecting when the remote end hangs up the line. Now I am certain that this is not an asterisk issue, but want to know if there is a workaround.
The problem lies in the fact that when I call from my cell phone to my lingo line (without asterisk), and then hang up my cell phone, the lingo line just reverts to a standard busy signal, followed by the “off-hook” signal, then silence. Therefore, when my lingo line is connected to asterisk, and an incoming call comes in and goes to voicemail, it takes about 3 minutes after the caller hangs up before the Lingo line goes to silence where asterisk then detects 10 seconds of silence and hangs up.
Is there any way that asterisk can monitor the line, and when it detects a busy signal, it should hang up.
