Ok, I’ve seen lots of different solutions to parts of my problem but not something from end to end that makes logical sense and solves it (even after trying to put together the work from 2-3 different articles). We have Asterisk 1.4.20rc1 and FreePBX 2.6.0RC2.1.
I’m trying to get asterisk to either dial 0 as soon as a FXS port ( Digium TDM880EF) is activated by a fax machine attached to it or add the 0 to the number that the dialled after it sends it.
We don’t want people having to add a 0 to the number when they use the fax machine and the fax machine itself doesn’t seem to support adding this number for us.
From what I can tell there are two ways to go about this. PLAR or ‘Hot line’ the 0 digit before on the number is sent from the fax on the zap channel that it is on OR setting up the dial plan to added the 0 to the number that it tries to dial.
If someone could provide instructions on either method or even links to where the steps are already as I can’t find anything that is clear about how to solve the issue using either method.
