VoIP hardware is developing fast - this is where you ask all those “how do I make my SIP Telephone, Adapter or Asterisk box work with my voip provider?” questions.

Works Great now I presume if I want to add a extra number I just put a pipe after last number

eg 55227|newnumber)

Thanks Again I cant believe how versatile these OBI ata are

You got it! :thumbsup:

You could even do it this way:
Code: Select all
SP1 Service > X_InboundCallRoute: {(MBlockSpamLocal):sp1(300)},{(MBlockSpamInternational):sp1(300)},{ph}

User Defined Digit Maps> User Defined Digit Map2 >

Label: BlockSpamLocal
DigitMap: (LocalNumber1|Local Number2)

User Defined Digit Maps> User Defined Digit Map3 >

Label: BlockSpamInternational
DigitMap: (InternationalNumber1|InternationalNumber2)
Keeps the dialplan string shorter and breaks them up into groups.

My OBi saves me £43.20 a year in fees. I was paying £3.60 a month with Voipfone to block nuisance calls!

Before I used a OBi the only other way was to use a PBX, then came along handsets with the ability to block calls but doing so via the OBIHAI hardware is not only easier but allows better control. The ability to p**s off cold callers by diverting then to funny, boring or looped recordings is fantastic! :D

I know its so quiet in the evenings now I also followed your advise on blocking private numbers

viewtopic.php?f=25&t=306

works great I used to have an old fritzbox and this could set calls with private number or no number to an internal answer machine in the fritzbox and that would say we dont accept private numbers but if its someone who knows me leave a message

this was a great facility as I would not miss someone who needed me with a private number and it would email the message to me

I now have

inbound call route {(MBlockSpam):sp1(300)},{(?):sp1(766709817)},{ph}

This sends the numbers in Blockspam to a funny recording but I now send unknown anon to 766709817 which is a voicemail box and here I have a recording saying we dont accept private calls but leave a message if you are genuine or words to that effect

The extra piece in the route I got from OBITALK forum so this OBI ata gets better and better

I'll need to get my head around all this, but it looks really useful and quite easy to comprehend, looks like regexp notation (sort of).

Are there easy ways to identify certain types of calls, for example, Withheld, Unknown, 00000000, International, Cellphone, Payphone.
Can these lists be automatically updated in anyway? For example if I want to add someone to a blacklist from within Asterisk with a click of a button.
Can you operate a whitelist?

An ATA is never going to be as good as a PBX, you have to manually update any blacklist via the OBiTALK portal or local web based GUI. You can toggle anonymous calls on and off but that's about it.

HI Paul

You asked me to let you know how I got on with the new code

my inbound route is

{(MBlockSpam):sp1(300)},{(?):sp1(353766709817)},{ph}

This as you know sends numbers that match MBlockspam to a funny recording at sp1 300 and it sends unknown numbers to the other number

My MBlockspam is

(001[012345789][123456789][012356789]xx.|087685522)

The last number is my mobile with one digit left off so I can test this by just adding my mobile last digit this works and if I add my mobile it blocks it fine

This morning I got yet another spam call from 0016077331419 and it got through and my phone rang early in the morning

I was hoping the MBlockspam would block all 001 except 001604 as we were talking about

Hopefully you can see why this got through

Thanks Again

I think you might have missed my post before that one

My Blockspam is now after adding 161xx

(001[012345789][123456789][012356789]xx.|087685522|16169639791|0016077331419|161xx)

Any idea why the 001607 got through
Paul OBI Talk forum suggested this

Inbound route:

{(001604xx.):ph},{(MBlockSpam):sp1(300)},{(?):sp1(353766709817)},{ph}

MBlockspam:

(001xx.|087685522)

Your Blockspam will not block ANY number with a 4th digit of "6", 5th of zero or 6th of "4".

Looks good what do you think
