Total Amount Of Asterisk Installations


Counting any Open Source package is difficult for many reasons. There is probably not a reliable answer to this question since there are at least 4 major “flavors” of Asterisk out there (1.4, 1.6, 1.8, 1.10) and open and commercial source. It is reliably > 10,000 and quite possibly over 100,000 or even over 1 million. The Asterisk folks might be willing to tell you how many downloads have been done from , but that wouldn’t tell you the real number. Maybe a good start point for an estimate would start at 200,000+ if you are including all of the versions and types. But then we might still think…

Tell external number instead of internal number


Hello, I have an internal extension, e.g. 1005 which is being called from an
external/public number like 123456789. Now when it comes to the spoken
voicemail information it says something like "number 1000 not available",
however it should say "number 123456789 not available". How can I configure
this? I already googled and I guess this is really easy, but I just
couldn't figure out how to do this ): So thanks for any hint :-)

911 multple-alert question


Can you set up asterisk so when a 911 call is placed, in addition to the
call out to the PSAP, it also alerts multiple other phones on the switch
and will display detailed information. Such as alerting a receptionist
or security guard there is a 911 call elsewhere in the building and the
location of that call within the building? If so, how? Thanks in advance for the help...

Administering phones


I'm new to asterisk, currently working through Asterisk, The Definitive Guide. I have a couple Grandstream 200 phones and a Polycom 501 to play with. The Grandstreams were very easy to configure, but the more capable Polycom almost drove me crazy. There is so much conflicting information on the web about necessary config files and names of those files. Anyway, all my phones are now working on a basic level, but it occurs to me that once spend a lot of time learning Asterisk, I might then have to spend an equal amount of time figuring out how to configure…

special digits * # on sip dial string


hi guys.
sorry if this is a silly question. My recharge application uses * digits if the subscriber wants to send
some aditional information to speed up a process, dialing something
like *777*123*5000
On my old ss7 network works great, but on my new ngn/sip i think it's
not possible because somewhere the call is rejected.
-On the NGN/Ericsson side engineer say that the call whas deliverd.
-On the asterisk side there is no invite shown on debug.
Can sip one or more * signs in a dial?
What am…
