Simple task calls to pager- please help to configure!

Asterisk14 configured and running.

I have two VOIP lines.

My task-
Asterisk gets a call on the first line and put caller on hold and plays music and message “wait, someone will be with you shortly”) at this time asterisk calls me at pager. I get the pager message and I am calling to the second-line from my cell to my asterisk and via the asterisk menus I get connected to the incoming call.

Could you please help me to configure extensions.conf and sip.conf


That’s a long time to make somebody wait.

But here’s how you might try it:

  1. Call comes in from customer
  2. System command forks process to spool outbound call (copy file to /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing)
  3. Put customer in a Queue
  4. You get the page from previous System command call spooling
  5. You dial back in on phone to AgentLogin application

Thanks for your prompt reply penguinpbx!


Why don’t you just setup a queue and get Asterisk call your cell phone. Why bother with a pager if you intend to speak with the caller anyway

See, At my work place I can not use the cell phone.

I am trying to set it up and just one stage does not work-

When someone calls in he/she goes into the queue.

# Press 1 for sales
exten=> s,1,Answer
exten=> s,2,Ringing
exten=> s,3,Wait(2)
exten=> s,4,system(cp /opt/tmp/ /opt/var/spool/asterisk/outgoing)
exten=> s,5,Queue(MyQueue)
exten=> s,6,Hangup

The system command would originale the call out to my pager #444444444 via file-

Channel: SIP/444444444@myvoip_out
MaxRetries: 2
RetryTime: 60
WaitTime: 30
Context: call-file-test
Extension: 444444444

My only problem now is to be able to transfer DTMF signal when pager operator is asking for my pager ID and call back #.
I was able to do it via siple extension line- where 444444444 is my pager phone #, 2222 my pager ID, and 222222222 is a call back #.

exten => 444444444,1,Dial(SIP/${EXTEN}@myvoip_out,D(wwwwwww2w2w2w2wwwwwww222222222ww#))

I just do not know how to do it.

If i add it at the and of the Channel: SIP/444444444@myvoip_out,D(wwwwwww2w2w2w2wwwwwww222222222ww#)

It does not work this way.

Any idea will be appreciated.
