This is my first post, but been stalking this forum a lot these last few weeks.
With the help of this forum, I was able to build a Asterisk 16.30.0 server, and was able to make my first call to the outside world today. The trusty MCI #800…lol. But that’s where my smile went to a frown as I can only dial 800 numbers, and not any of the other toll free numbers 833, 844, 855, 866, 877, 888.
Here is what I have for the outbound calls in extensions.conf
Or at least one that doesn’t have known security vulnerabilities, and is on a branch that won’t go end of life next month. 16.30.1 contains a security fix. It is unlikely that there will be a 16.30.2, but there are still a few weeks left.
Thank you all for the suggestions. changing the priority to all 2 worked and have been able to make external calls now to all toll free numbers. I will be upgrading to a new version of Asterisk, but wanted to get my feet wet first. Still trying to learn the ins and out of the system but I am ready to upgrade 18/20 pretty soon.
I am sure Ill be on here again to ask some silly question, but thanks again for the speedy help on this matter
