[jitsi-users] answering land line phone calls


#1

I use jitsi 2.8.5426 on my debian jessie system. Incoming calls from land
lines go directly to voice mail even if jisi is active on my system.

Any thoughts on how I can configure it to answer these calls is appreciated.

I use sip (audio only) via a private carrier.

Thanks

John

What occurs if it's a non-'landline' phone incoming phone call? Does
Jitsi ring as you expect? Do you see anything in the jitsi logs when
the calls are placed on the landline to your phone number?

How do these landline calls get to your Debian machine? I mean, do you have a
POTS/ISDN card installed, are you running an Asterisk (or similar) server,
where and how is the voicemail service hosted?

What software do you run on your PC to manage these calls?

Any thoughts on how I can configure it to answer these calls is
appreciated.

If that's what you mean by "landline calls", then my question above regarding
POTS/ISDN is clearly not relevant, but answers to the rest (and anything else
you can tell us to explain exactly what it is you want to conect to your Jitsi
account) would be helpful.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I am not sure if I have a POTS/ISDN card, nor how to find out My machine is a
Lenovo T410 thinkpad and it has answered landline calls for years, first with
Twinkle and more recently Ekiga. They still work (answer calls). I just like
jitsi better. I looked on the lenovo specs for the T410 and see nothing about
POTS/ISDN. I usually go wireless but wired or wireless makes no difference
best I can tell.

My sip service provider for many years has been diamondcard.us. I have never
used asterisk and it is not installed.

Only voip-type software I know of is jitsi.
