X100P Clone - Changing Number Of Rings to Answer


#1

Hello

I have Asterisk@home 1.3 with an X100P. I want to answer a PSTN (without caller id) line and automatically transfer the call to a SIP extension.

I am able to use a CISCO 7960 to call that same PSTN line and make calls thru it, so I now it all works.

The phone call gets answered on the second ring no matter i do in extensions.conf.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks in advance

if you add the ,15,t this will have it ring 15 seconds, add the Voicemail to have it goto voicemail after 15 seconds

thanks for the reply

but the FXO card still waits until the second ring to do anything

can it answer and forward the call to the SIP phone wihing the first ring?

Thank you again

try removing the answer statement.

Also keep in mind (as I am finding out more and more) that the X100P and its clones is a fairly primitive device with very few adjustments. It is also made to US impedance specs and thus the sound quality here in Europe leaves lots to be desired.

The X100P that answers and transfers withing two rings is locate at work, connected to an analog port to one of our PBX. I also have another at home which I plugged in to a Vonage ATA; that one answers in one ring? but didn’t get to work (the phone rings with incoming calls but when you answer the phone, the line keeps ringing - for outgoing calls, I couldn’t get it to dial at all.

By the way, the X100P clone at Work, works fine as long as calls are inside the PBX. If I make calls outside the office I get varied results: sometimes a little echo, sometimes noises on the line.

No biggie, at work we plan to get the either a couple of T1 or Quad T1 Digium cards to use with 2 spare T1s we have - If we can get asterisk to do what we need it to do, that is. At this point we are just testing the waters.
