We have installed Freepbx on Prem at a client site.
We are using a DAHDI card as an outbound trunk that is connected to a Valcom bell and paging unit. Any analog phone connected to the Valcom unit that dials 50 is able to connect to the speakers to make announcements.
I was able to set up an outbound route that will allow phones connected to the PBX to accomplish this same thing. The trouble I’m running in to is as follows: I am trying to create some sort of feature code or extension that will allow certain extensions to use this DAHDI trunk and a paging group that I defined in Freepbx at the same time in order to make announcements using both the Valcom unit and the phone speakers simultaneously .
So far I have tried adding the following to extensions_custom.conf:
[from-internal-custom] include => page-all [page-all] exten => 15,1,NoOp(Custom Context: Page Group 60 and Dial Extension 50 in Outbound Route when 15 is dialed) exten => 15,n,Page(Group:60) ; Replace 60 with the actual group number you want to page. exten => 15,n,Dial(ValcomPage/50) ; Replace "OutboundRoutename" with your actual outbound route name. exten => 15,n,Hangup()
The result of this is, I am able to dial 15 to initiate some sort of call but its not reaching the valcom unit or the page group.
Any direction on this would be greatly appreciated!
