Monitoring a DAHDI channel is easy with a BLF, provided you don’t want the button to do anything when pressed. In the file /etc/asterisk/extensions_custom.conf add lines like these in the existng [from-internal-custom] section:

exten=> *00001,hint,DAHDI/1
exten=> *00002,hint,DAHDI/2
exten=> *00003,hint,DAHDI/3
exten=> *00004,hint,DAHDI/4

Reload the dialplan, then program a BLF on your phone with the code “*00001” (no quotes) and the BLF will illuminate whenever DAHDI channel 1 is inuse.

Would it be possible to have the BLF buttons indicate PRI status fro a DHADI card? i.e., green OK, red Alarm?
