Hello Asterisk gurus!
I’m new to Asterisk but have 10 years of Linux experience, so I’m part way there to understanding this promising technology.
I’d like to start with a simple setup, and grow from there.
Is it possible to set up voicemail on an Asterisk server to only pick up for one particular distinctive ring? I have a 3 phone numbers sharing one line. I’d like one of those numbers to go directly to voice mail. The other goes to fax, and the third (actually the primary/normal ring number) is for personal voice calls and answering machine. I’d like to use Asterisk to separate the personal answering machine from my home office voice mail.
What would I need for that? Can I keep phone wiring standard and just plug an FXS card into an Asterisk server and connect that to an existing phone jack?
If that won’t work, I suppose the other option is FXO and FXS cards, and Asterisk would sit between my phone co. incoming regular line and in house wiring.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated! I’ve read some of the documents but haven’t found the spot dealing in particular with distinctive ring tones and having Asterisk only pick up for voice mail on one of them.
