Re: Asterisk forward call

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



How about adding in a time check so that during certain hours Asterisk waits 8 seconds before answering, otherwise it answers right away. You could also setup a status variable within the AstDB to indicate immediate answer or delayed answer.

Just some thoughts.

Thanks John,
I was trying to find a way to work around the partial ring. Ignoring is what
I'm doing now wait(8) seconds but when the number not being forward that
means there is a delay of 8seconds before phones start ringing.

Thanks,
motty

Call forwarding ALWAYS sends a partial ring to the line. This is by design
from ESS 1 days, and serves to remind the party that the line is forwarded.
Asterisk certainly can be configured to ignore the first ring in any number
of ways.

Hello All,
My Asterisk server is working fine except that at night I forward my
number to another phone number, however my asterisk server still
rings once before call is forward. My Local Phone provider is ATT and
they said that there is not way around it, I'm always going to get a
partical ring.
Any suggestions how to stop the Asterisk from rining once before
forward to another number?

Hi Motty,
I'm assuming that you're forwarding calls unconditionally, yes ?

I haven't tested it for a while, but, I'm pretty sure that if your PBX
is not told to ring a device before forwarding the call, it should not
do so.
I do recall having worked in  a non-PBX office , and when we performed
CFWD, the local phone would ring once and then get forwarded, but,
that's because the local phone never took control of the call coming
from the carrier. In your case , the PBX can take over the call, never
produce a ring , and then dial the CFWD number. I guess a trace of
this instance can be useful .
