Description:I seem to have tracked down an issue with the ringing generated by the dial command.
my indications is set to country=uk


If i use this i can hear default US style ringing all the time, even with external PSTN users calling into the office. When they ring the rings seem to be inband audio as in the UK we dont have US ring tones and also without answering the call.

if i do the folowing...
Then i do hear UK ring tones.

if i do the folowing...
I get inband MOH without answering the call.

So it seems that * is defaulting to US ring tones if Answer is not used before the dial command.


This has caused many issues with clients thinking we have moved abroad.

This will be with the Dahdi channel, or with some application you have called before dial, not with the dial command.

You need to provide the contents of the dial macro, so that people can see whether it does anything that would trigger in band progress (in most cases, generating in band progress would be a bad thing).

Also, I think you need to provide traces from chan_dahdi, and possibly from the low level dahdi driver.

ok it seems shortly after i posted this someone told me about the settings in the system.conf for loadzone etc.. and now it works properly.

From what ive started to gather, inband audio on SIP phones only applys to the MOH while 'r' ring tones on SIP phones rely on the phone generating these tones rather than * thus saving bandwidth until the client picks up, is this correct?

tones on dahdi channels it is setup from the system.conf
tones played though the dialplan (not 'r') uses indications.conf?

ps. Mabey as a feature it should be possable within the dial command to specify r(default) for normal out of band ringing or r(uk) etc.. so i can force inband audio for SIP phones with certian tone zones

That is a discussion question; please follow up on the asterisk-users mailing list for such questions. The issue tracker is not the appropriate place for that. Thanks!
