BLF And Call Queues



I'm trying to monitor a Call Queue with BLF-button to see if there are calls inside the Call Queue.

This I have :


exten => 566,hint,Queue:voipq1

On the CLI I see :

566@908001-blf : Queue:voipq1 State:Unavailable Watchers 1

But when a call enters my queue "voipq1", then my BLF-light stays green in stead of turning red or blinking red.

Is there something I'm missing to "monitor" a call queue ?

Kind regards, Jonas.

I have not added any credit to these SIMs for fear of it still not working () I can't get "smsq" working. However, I can send an SMS message using the "gsm send sms" command in CLI, and so by using something like # asterisk -rx "gsm send sms 1 0xxxxxxxxxx…

Trouble With Call Pickup Using RPID With Cisco


I have a Cisco 1760V with FXO ports hooked to POTS lines talking SIP to Asterisk

imagining in extensions.conf: exten => 1,1,Dial(SIP/121) exten => 2,1,Dial(SIP/121&SIP/122)

When a caller dials extension 2 /and/ I have trustrpid=yes generaterpid=yes sendrpid=yes in sip.conf and I use the pickup exten, the caller is disconnected.


if i set the rpid generate/send = no for the cisco peer, the user is connected. see:

calls to exten 1 work regardless of rpid settings.

i have replication configs at

Can someone help me determine if this is a problem with asterisk or ios ?
