I bought a couple of Grandstream 100s that seem to work well. Except
for echoing on "speaker". I got asterisk at home 1.5 installed without
incident. I seem to have successfully set up asterisk to recognize
the Grandstreams as extensions. I have seem to have asterisk answering
a plain old telephone line (via a Digium clone card).
Here are my current "hang ups" I hope someone here will help with:
1) I haven't figured out how to configure the outgoing POTS stuff. All
the prefix conversion stuff seem like gobbledgoop to me. So far. Can
someone enlighten me? Or, better yet, give me a recipe?
2) I can't receive voicemail. I can leave a message from one extension
to another if the target extension is busy or does not answer.
However, when I try to receive the message and the "operator" tells me
to "press one to....", keyins have no effect.
3) I have setup both extensions to be on a "ring group" with the hope
that an incoming call would ring on BOTH extensions. Seemingling not
so, only the first extension in the "ring group" seems to ring. Can
someone suggest how to configure so that it does what I wish? When I
get additional extensions, I will also want to have one extension ring
ALL the others.
I have two phone lines; my intermediate term goal is to add a second
Digium clone for the other phone line and configure so that any
extension can dial out on either line. Something like
"8+<7or10or11digits>" for one line and "9+<7or10or11digits>" for the
other line. I presume that that is doable? Currently, one line is a
"metro" line, which can call Austin without extra charge, and one is
My longer term goal is to get internet VOIP working acceptable well
over my satellite connection and then drop one of my land lines. My
expectations here are rather low due the troublesomeness of my Direcway
