    Default How to have an extension pickup the fxo line when going offhook

    HI

    I am looking to program up an extension so that when you pickup the handset it automatically grabs the FXO line and gives an external dial tone ready for the user to call.

    I looked at the hotline settings but it expects you to put in a number to call, rather than just presenting the user with the FXO dial tone.

    Thanks in advance

    Default

    Create a Call Routing rule like this:
    ----------------------------------
    Destination Number Pattern: 9*
    Number of Discarded Symbols: 1
    Destination Type: FXO, Any
    ----------------------------------
    If you have FXS phone connected to your extension then enable "Enable Hot Line Service" on that extension, set Call Type to FXO and Called Address to 9.
    Now, if you pick up the handset, you will get the dial tone from one of the FXO lines.

    If you have IP phone connected to your extension then configure one of the speed dial keys with 9. Now, if you press that key, you will get the dial tone from FXO.
