Hi

Has anyone been successful in getting Asterisk to generate NZ/Aust ring cadences rather than the default US based cadence. I have checked that I have the correct Country setting in Indications.conf and it is set to NZ. The Ring Cadence setting for NZ in that file is: ringcadence = 400,200,400,2000 and the ring tone setting is: ring = 400+450/400,0/200,400+450/400,0/2000 which seem to be about right.

However Trixbox seems to be ignoring any changes I make to these entries, which suggests that these settings are controlled from somewhere else.

Any ideas?

Cheers Mike

Thanks Mauricio

The entries in the link you provided are the same as the one's I used (at least for the ring= entry) however the ip phones I use and the response to the internal callers still follows the US ring cadence. That is what led me to think that perhaps the implementation of the Indications.conf settings was controlled by something other than the country= setting in that file.  No matter what country I select, or what ringcadence setting I use, the ring tones remain the same.  When I have changed anything in indications.conf I stop and restert amportal. So, I cannot think what else to try at the moment.

Cheers Mike

Tones that you hear in the phone are generated by the phone itself and not by Asterisk. If you want to change these tones you will need to find the configuration options in the IP phone that you have. If it's a Linksys you'll find the settings on the voipusers.org.nz wiki, these will work on the PAP2 or an of the current Linksys models and with a bit of tinkering should be appropiate for other phones as well.

Ok thanks,

I am using the GPX-2000 and I cannot see anywhere in the configuration where the ring cadence can be changed. I will continue to research this and see what turns up.

Thanks for the responses.

Cheers Mike

This info is very good however I have found the dial tone sounds SLIGHTLY off a normal NZ dialtone. The pitch seems identical however the sound on my Telecom landline seems alot smoother whereas on the IP phone it sounds like there is a exteremly fast stutter to the tone. Nothing major unless you're as much of a Perfectionist as me.
