  • Priority is a required parameter. In your call file you are telling Asterisk to

    Go to context asteriskgw_fax, extension s. Priority tells Asterisk where to start in asteriskgw_fax. Since C would assume 0 and contexts start with 1, priority: 1 tells it to go to line 1. Another use for this would be to tell Asterisk to start further down to skip a wait or something.

    Sample:

    [asteriskgw_fax]

    Exten => s,1,answer()

    Exten => s,n,wait(5)

    Exten => s,n,playback(sending-fax)

    You could use priority 1 for DAHDI to compensate for PSTN delays and priority 3 for SIP calls.
