I thought this would be an easy one but hours of googleing has not brought me an answer.
I’m using FreePBX with a Digium card and only one POTS line, I’ll add SIP later, once I’ve got a handle on the configuration programming. For now the purpose is to record all calls and allow me to filter out telemarketers and nuisance calls.
I have Call forwarding included on the POTS line from my Telco. I need a way to get an outside line so I can dial *72 and forward the line to my cell when I’m away. (With only one analog line there is no way to call forward within Asterisk.)
How in the world do I simply get an outside dial tone? This should be simple right?
I currently unplug the phone and plug it directly into a telco jack to bypass Asterisk and then repeat to disengage call forward when I return to the shop. Not exactly a ringing endorsement of the functionality of Asterisk.
