I am trying to hook up trixbox to an older phone system to provide auto attendant and other services. I need to know how to do a switch hook or a flash to get a dial tone and then enter a extension number. I have been searching for an hour now and can’t find a good answer to this. My misc destinations and applications are working fine, just need that dial pattern with a switch hook in it.
Why do you need to do a switch hook to get a dial tone. I’snt taking the phone off hook enough (i.e. simulate lifting the receiver/handset)?
I need to include the switch hook, or lift the handset, in my dial plan. For instance, a new call is transfered to asterisk by the old phone system, the ivr answers and says hello. The caller presses 1. 1 needs to transfer to a extension on the old phone system, so it needs to do a switch hook, or flash, to get a dial tone on the old phone system to then enter the extension to transfer to. Asterisk transfers the call and frees itself up to take another call.
