Call Transfer Trouble

First off Happy New Year to all…

I figured I would throw this out and see if anyone has any suggestions. I am having a problem where if someone tries to transfer a call to a different extension, the call just gets dropped.

My configuration is that I am running Asterisk 1.6.2.15 with FreePBX 2.8.0.4, and I have a mix of Aastra 6739i and 6731i phones.

If I take and answer a call, and I want to transfer it to a different phone, if I hit the transfer key, it puts the caller on hold (they get music on hold), and it prompts me for an extension. I then enter the extension to transfer to, and hit the button to perform the transfer, and the call is just dropped.

Here is a log snippet:

[Dec 31 11:41:40] VERBOSE[7457] res_musiconhold.c:     -- Started music on hold, class 'default', on SIP/bandwidth_east-000000bb
[Dec 31 11:41:44] VERBOSE[7457] res_musiconhold.c:     -- Stopped music on hold on SIP/bandwidth_east-000000bb
[Dec 31 11:41:44] VERBOSE[7457] pbx.c:     -- Executing [[email protected]:1] Macro("SIP/bandwidth_east-000000bb", "hangupcall") in new stack

No errors, no transfer, it just hangs up. So not sure if this is a phone issue, or what, but seems strange a modern Aastra would have a transfer issue. I sure couldn’t find anything googling around.

On the other hand, if I just park the call, not transfer it, then it works fine.

Any ideas what could be wrong??

Guys,

It was mentioned elsewhere in the forum but just make sure you are not being bitten by the SIP REFER (blind transfer) / manager transfer bug that affects Asterisk 1.4.38 and 1.6.15. You mention you are running these versions–seems likely to be the source of your trouble.

Get on 1.6.2.16-rc1 or 1.4.39-rc1 at least.

I had the same problem on my 31is using firmware 2.6.0.1007

argg - spoke too soon, this appears to only happen on inbound calls. If I make an outbound call, then try to transfer it to another extension it works fine.

I am using Asterisk 1.4.38 and freepbx 2.8.0.4 with latest modules as of today.

Here is a full sip debug if anyone is interested in debugging

What happens when you do a ## or *2 transfer?
