View Full Version : auto-dial out

I copy a file "hello-world.call" to /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing/

Channel: SIP/2002/2001
Application: Playback
Data: hello-world

But asterisk did nothing.

Hi orlandov,

There are many reasons this might not be working.

1) Confirm the spool location 'astspooldir' is valid in /etc/asterisk/asterisk.conf. Make sure the location is accessible. This includes verifying permissions.

2) Make sure the pbx_spool.so module is loaded.

3) Check the date/time on your call file and the system. For example, if you do not have a valid date you will want to set the date/time for the system.

Finally you may want to check the logs - /var/log/messages to see if there is any indication why this is failing.
