Asterisk PSTN interface debugging
When interfacing between Asterisk and the PSTN many problems can arise, you can debug your PSTN interface.
- ztmonitor <channel number> -v
- gives you a visual representation of the sound strengths and makes it easy to see if the receive or transmit signals are too high or out of balance
Randomly Dropped Calls
- Read comments in zapata.conf for the callprogress setting.
- Try setting busydetect=no or greater than 6
How to speak TelcoLinemen and installers have to debug wierd line situations all the time. Accordingly they've built testing facilities on to specific lines so they can debug echo and so on.
