Can you help with a suggestion / tip on how to accomplish this goal?
All Incoming (calls) (PRI) arrive 1st to IVR ….
We would like to have some “simulated” ringing (1 or 2 rings) (not to actual registered extensions) … but before calls are sent to the IVR, so that outside callers hear some ringing before the IVR plays.
I’ve tried putting a fake-extension (not registered) as the 1st stop, and then using:
advanced : optional destinations: No answer: to send the calls to the IVR
For the fake-extension: I set the permit peer IP (advanced) to something specific which is not in use by the LAN … (I think I’m missing one step) … I remember having to do this (years back).
Incoming calls do not ring: but do go to the IVR (with no ringing)
Thanks for any tips.
