Hi,
I have an Elastix system with 4 FXO. When I call one of the numbers, and I have a phone connected to the line directly to the wall, I notice that the Elastix system starts ringing 2 rings late.

I have the Inbound route set to "any DID / any CID" with a ring group. I tried using only one extension, instead of the ring group and I get the same delay.

Is it supposed to be like that or is there anything I can do to fix it?

Thanks!

Its just like that.

The excuse is "its waiting for Bell caller ID between the first and second rings".

If you don't want caller ID you can change the setup in the dahdi conf file. I think it should be something like immediate=yes

Thanks for the answers!

Where do I check the faxdetection? zapata.conf?

or chan_dahdi.conf, you neglected to say what version of Elastix you use.

I'm using 1.5.2-2.

On chan_dahdi.conf it says "faxdetect=incoming". Should I set it to off?

That would depend on whether you wanted to detect incoming faxes or not. B)

I will comment it out tomorrow since I'm not at the office right now and I'll report back to see if the extensions ring faster. I actually have no need for fax right now.

Thanks for your help!

The dahdi driver needs to be reloaded for changes in that file to kick in.
. . .and I bet you wish you didn't have something that tries to do it on DAHDI/3 :) ,

Don't be too quick to blame Elastix/Asterisk, a channel is the analog sum of ALL ends, ALL ends will respond to what they see on the channel, if you have an external device that looks like a fax, modem, postage meter, alarm, etc. etc. then it is Elastix' will try to behave like an 'intelegent' phone, listen for a fax, detect far end disconnection, answer a fax, or even answer a phone call, it will do what you want it to, and behave as you tell it to.

Either match the provisioning (USOC's here) of the trunk from your telco, (I don't know why, but many believe that is proprietary information for some reason,) or, I suggest, as a first step, Replace the Elastix system with an old analog telephone and observe any different behavior, note that behavior, and so set Asterix to respond to the trunk behavior you are connected to.
