Reverse Callerid blocking

kgoerbig's picture

So, I'm getting an influx of telemarketers calling in. Common callerid that displays starts with 1613 and 1614. If I add 1613* as a blocked number, before it would send all calls with a callerid of that prefix to FreePBX default "this number is disconnected". Now, all those calls with those prefixes get through. If I call that number back I get a operator error (number not in service or something simular). So I think most of these guys are using fake caller ids or reverse caller id, or something. Is there a way to block this stuff?


Trunk Sequence For Matched Routes Does Not Failover

grumpyman57's picture

Hi All,

I have become frustrated in trying to get the trunk sequence for matched routes to failover when the first trunk in the list is busy.

The system in question is running Freepbx v2.9.0.7 and Asterisk 1.87. In this particular instance, the first outbound trunk is an analog POTS circuit terminated on a DAHDI card, and the second outbound trunk is a SIP trunk. Local/toll free calls ONLY are routed to the DAHDI card, and my intention is to have all long distance calls routed out the SIP trunk, as well as local calls, but only if the DAHDI circuit is busy.


Way newbie questions - please help

Ok, I am brand new to the concept of doing my own PBX.

First: What are the system/hardware requirements for a PC running the freepbx distro?

What services do I need to buy? I know I need a DID, and trunk? I see the ad for unlimted for 24.99 but wondering if there is something cheaper out there. (I may not need unlimited).



Extension "Dual SIP Registration" Problem!

franzf's picture

Hi Everyone!

I have the following problem, dual registration:

-- Registered SIP '220' at port 18862 expires 3600
-- Saved useragent "SIPAUA/0.1.001" for peer 219
-- Registered SIP '220' at port 5060 expires 120
-- Saved useragent "MxSipApp/ " for peer 219

Any tips to restrict or prevent? as per extension "useragent" restriction using freepbx or .conf files modification?

Any Warning Script?

Anything can help me?

Thanks in advance.



queues call recording

cccvvv's picture

I am using FreePBX
I changed a directory for call records in the variable MIXMON_DIR
via FreePBX Tools -> Advanced Settings -> Override Call Recording Location
but queues turn continue to be written in the directory /var/spool/asterisk/monitor

how I can change the default directory of call records for queues?

thanks for any ideas!


Route Congestion Messages

toffe02's picture


This is my first post. I am trying freepbx now - moved away from Trixbox as I want to have freepbx's flexibility.

I ran in to the old All circuits are busy now" default message and is seems that installing the Module - Route Congestion Messages does not help me a bit.

I configured it to have HangupCause 1,18,19 and 28 to play a different recorded message other than the default, tested the recording via the Announcement feature so i know the recording works (I recorded using freepbx)

But I still get the same "All circuits are busy now...." message.
