i have been going through lots of forums posts and have not found this answer yet.
basically i have installed Asterisk running perfectly can dial in have that going to my extension works like a charm. voice mail -> email working perfectly
Freepbx interface very cool but somewhat confusing on outgoing trunks and routes.
I have a Wildcard TDM400P 4 port card but port 1 is dodgy dont know why but i only have 3 lines so using 2 3 and 4 is not a problem.
So i need to tell Asterisk to use only ports 2 3 and 4 for placing outgoing calls.
Outbound routes in FreePBX interface has at bottom Trunk Sequence ZAP/g0 and Dial Pattern 9|. every time i try dial i hear “All circuits are busy now” which then switches to " The person you are calling is unavailable please try again"
This continues no matter what i try so after this. Voicemail another extension. just keep repeating this last line for a while then goes back to normal operation if i leave it for about a minute.
