I’m getting ready to deploy my first Asterisk system, but I don’t know how I’m going to handle setting up the system speed-dial numbers. I’m using most of the speed-dial buttons on the handsets for accessing applications & stuff, so I’ll need to have a bunch of 2 or 3 digit extensions that just place a call on a zap trunk to s specific telephone number. I’d also like to prevent external callers from accessing these extensions (to avoid handing out free long-distance phone calls).
Does anyone have any suggestions? A quick example would be extremly helpful.
