Two ways to do that (at least ) one is to send your inbound calls to an IVR with a short timeout destination to where it normally goes and a “hidden” destination to a disa you will build ion FreePBX, or perhaps more complicated an inband detection of a dtmf sequence that will be intercepted by the “features” and “application map” facility built into asterisk.
I asked if he would be willing to assist me and offered compensation. I made the assumption that this would not be welcomed in the open forum so I did it over PM. I also wasn’t sure if he would get a notification of a new PM, which is why I posted a thread reply indicating as such.
I do want to learn and that is why I offered to compensate dicko for helping me solve the problem; not doing it for me… (That’s what paid support is for). I am up against a tight timeline otherwise I would just bang away at it until I got it working. Unfortunately, time is not on my side and my hope was that someone already had this solution identified.
I fully intend to post the solution so that all can benefit.
