I have a call flow that is as follows:
Someone calls in from outside
the call is routed to a virtual extension that automatically goes to followme to a second virtual extension
the call is then routed by the second virtual extension to a real extension that rings a phone
The problem I have is when the first virtual extension’s followme calls the second virtual extension, that does not call the final real extension but gives the following:
Unable to create channel of type ‘VIRTUAL’ (cause 66 - Channel not implemented)
Why isnt the second virtual extension just executing its followme to the final destination.
I know - get rid of the multiple hops. If I manually do this, it works fine, but I have this these extensions created automatically to create a flexibility I want. It makes it easier to make the system have the flexibility I want and have all routing thru a similar scheme.
How can I make a virtual extension’s followme execute when called by another virtual extension’s followme to go to a third extension?
Thanks for the help!!!
Sorry for the delay getting back on this. I have been busy getting my new system up and running. I figured out how to make it work. The initial ext needs to follow me to the intermediate ext with a “#”
For example, if 100 (virtual) follow me points to 101 (virtual) whose follow me points to 200 (pjsip) - obviously 100 and 101 have a call time limit of 0.
If 100’s follow me is 101 and 101’s follow me is 200, it fails
If 100’s follow me is 101# and 101’s follow me is 200, good to go!!
