Can I dial directly from the asterisk console with the Dial() application?
or, is channel originate preferred:
channel originate SIP/thufir extension 18003569377@outbound
console dial number@context
Thanks, that’s much more intuitive 🙂
Note, however, that it is a different thing. It uses a specific device:
the “console”. That is: the speaker and microphone of the system Asterisk is running on. For that to be available you need to have one of chan_alsa, chan_console or chan_oss loaded and working.
