Trying to figure out an easy way to do this. I have Trixbox system setup with:
Trunk 1
Trunk 2
Extn 1
Extn 2
Extn 3
Exnt 4

I want all outbound calls from extn 1 & 3  by default to dialout on trunk 1.
And all outbound calls from extn 2 & 4 to dial out on trunk 2.

Any ideas without having to prefix numbers before you call?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Use the Custom Contexts module in FreePBX. This allows you to easily create contexts and set a myriad of settings including setting the trunks the context can access.

Once you've done this just replace the "from-internal" in the extension settings with the new context that you create.

Using Trixbox 2.8
This module appears to not be there by default, or available from "packages". I'm guessing I may need to add this module manually?
Alternatively, I may look at prefixing numbers dialed from these extensions, so the outgoing routes will pick that up, strip the prefix and know what trunk to send out on.
Cheers

Oops yeah it's an addon for FreePBX so you'll need to manually install the module from here

you could have the extension auto prefix the number and pick the trunk route by the auto prefixing. the user won't need to do anything extra but the prefix will mean that it will select the correct outbound route by extension.

dynamiccomputers: you could have the extension auto prefix the number and pick the trunk route by the auto prefixing. the user won't need to do anything extra but the prefix will mean that it will select the correct outbound route by extension.


Allocating numbers to dial out from trunks is ugly and such a legacy solution from the days where PBX's couldn't impliment dialplans like they can do with SIP.

Having to dial a prefix such as 0, 1 or 9 to access a trunk is obsolete these days with VoIP and there is no need for it unless you're running multiple VoIP providers and end up with numbers that clash.

If you are using trunks you could do this but it would be far more work and far more complex than simply configuring a context and assigning it to an extension. Contexts are one of the most powerful features in Asterisk, it's a lot cleaner and tidier way of implimenting a solution.

Thanks for the tips Steve, all sorted. Shame this addon is not a standard part of the trixbox install.

There are quite a few FreePBX modules that aren't part of the main FreePBX release - this is one of them. You can easily add these modules to FreePBX within reason as the GUI used by trixbox is just a forked FreePBX that adds a few of their own things (and caused a huge fight at the time between Fonality and the FreePBX people).

I highly recommend you use the backup module as well. Unless you're using something like Mondo to create a full system backup it's the next best thing.

Unless you've done some fancy stuff outside Asterisk you will be able to restore a normal system in about 30 mins from scratch including a full trixbox install.
