FreePBX: How To Hangup If The Caller Did Not Press # After The Voicemail Message

Dears;

In FreePBX, when I select voicemail for the extension, and if the caller sent for the voicemail, and he leaved (or did not leave) a voice message, and did not press #, so the channel will stay open and this is not good specially if the call was coming from outside via the analoge lines (because the caller might hangup and the dahdi does not detect the hangup, so the channel will stay openned).

How to let the voicemail hangup automatically after waiting for certain seconds (for example after 30 or 40 second), then to hangup or jump for the next line to run it?

What is the parameter or the setting field in the freepbx that can resolve this (the voice mail message to be maximum for 30 or 40 second, after that to hangup even without pressing #). From where?

Regards
Bilal

    Asterisk, and by extension FreePBX, automatically end the voicemail recording when the caller hangs up. You have some OTHER issue. Perhaps Asterisk is not detecting the hangup?

    I did one try and did not hangup:

    I called the extension and when the voicemail answered, I did not leave any message and stayed waiting .. waiting .. waiting ..
    It did not hangup from it self ! How much it stay waiting me to leave a message?

    Why I am trying this? OK, the answer is: Because I am trying to see if the voicemail hangup even if it did not get from the caller the hangup, because this is happening when the caller is calling from outside to the dahdi (analoge) and when the caller hangup his mobile, the hangup does not reach (it is PSTN issue), so I beleive the voicemail should hangup from it self after timeout .. but I do not see this.

    Anyadvise?
