  • If i use ‘s’ then i got following error. This scenario is back to back asterisk connected on PRI line (T1). for testing purpose i calling from one asterisk to other and i want to land call on ‘s’ extension.

  • Uhm….

    That’s because you’re being passed 7527 as the extension, so it won’t
    match “s”

  • @Sherwood,

    I was also thinking about that…. But then how ‘s’ extension match any unknown number ? Like when call coming from PSTN then how IVR picked up…?
