I want to increase the ring time for an extension. Where do I go to do this?
I assume you are ringing the extension vial the Dial() command, if so you can just include a ring time argument
;; ring 30 seconds Dial(SIP/101,30) ;; ring 60 seconds Dial(SIP/101,60)
That sounds real good, but I’m used to using FreePBX. So where is Asterisk do I change this? I’m a complete newbie. I’m just trying to help out with some technical issues since that department is backed up quite a bit. I’m good at Linux, and have configured some phones in Asterisk, but using the GUI interface. I’ve never made additions to the dial plan.
sorry… my assistance ends here. i have never used any of the GUIs for *.
hopefully someone else can chime in.
 if you did want to mess around with the dial plan manually, you would be editing the /etc/asterisk/extensions.conf file.
I would rather learn how to do it manually instead of with the GUI. Thanks for the last part of the message. I should be able to change it with that information.
This is for one specific extension. But I don’t see it in extensions.conf. ???
