[quote=“dlublink”][quote=“RichardHH”]Sorry for that dumb question, but what you mean by “call waiting” ?
Im not native-english, so sorry for asking, but i dont see what you mean with call waiting".
You mean that a call is on hold while you talk from that phone ?
Or ringing “in the background” ?[/quote]
If someone calls your extension while you are on the line, instead of getting straight to voicemail the destination hears a Beep and can hit flash to grab the call.
Ah ok, tnx.
Well, normally the asterisk isnt supposed to handle that.
Its the PHONE !
Because asterisk isnt “deciding” if a phone is busy or not, the phone is - regarding the setup of the phone (callwaiting=Yes / No).
There should be a setup parameter like this for your phones.
And then the PHONE decides to send back a “busy here” or not, depending on its configuration.
There is a “fake” in asterisk for that (maxlines or so…), but since you dont have it in your configs, its not active anyway - so see your local phones
