I have set up two Asterisk servers to allow direct dialing to user extensions. How can configure the PBX to allow the remote Asterisk box to dial directly into the conference room?

For example:

PBX-A : In CA with extension 5XXX
PBX-B : In NY with extension 6XXX

I have a conference room set up in PBX-A with the number 5800. I would like PBX-B to dial 5800 and get place into the conference automatically. Currently when they call the #, they are getting the message "All circuits are busy now". I can transfer them into the room manually.

Thanks!

Calls between the two PBXs work fine with extensions. PBX-A can call PBX-B users and vice versa. However only local users from the PBX can call the conference room by dialing the # 5800. What I am looking for is how to allow the remote PBX to call 5800 and get place into the conf.

I hope I am explaining this clearly,

1. Paste the configuration that you have done on both trunks, as well.
2. Paste the outbound routes that you have defined to reach the remote PBX.

I will recommend you to use the context flag. Follow the guide that I have left you, it will solve your problems

Thanks jgutierrez! That was it! All I have to do was add "context=from-internal" into the Peer details.
