Transfer Call Placed From Console (with Chan_alsa)

Hi everyone.

Having experimented a but with a prototype of a system I described in an earlier thread (Reading DTMF sent by callee during a SIP call), I
decided to implement my requirement by transferring the call to another extension. This way, the callee can open the door by pressing
#1, and the dial plan for extension 1 takes care of the rest.

This works when I make a typical SIP to SIP call, but it doesn’t when I call from the console, using chan_alsa. I can see that the transfer feature is inactive:
