I’d like to have my Asterisk system pick up a certain extension on an existing Panasonic PBX when it rings. (It’s connected to some proprietary Panasonic doorphones that I haven’t replaced yet.) I
connected that extension to an FXO port on a Digium AEX410 card, and set that channel to have the context “doorphone”.

The problem is that the extension is never executed. With debugging on, I see:

Nov 23 16:37:23] DEBUG[20077]: chan_dahdi.c:11896 do_monitor: Monitor doohicky got event Ring Begin on channel 12

[Nov 23 16:37:30] DEBUG[20077]: sig_analog.c:3621 analog_handle_init_event: channel (12) – signaling (5) – event (ANALOG_EVENT_RINGOFFHOOK)

so it seems to be detecting the ring, but that’s it. What am I missing?
