answer found in NEW doc's

Call-limit. Number of simultaneous calls for this phone. Set to 1 to

disable call waiting.

Thanks Doc Writter

Sorry to bring back something so old, but I have a specific problem related to this.

I have a user who wants call waiting disabled. If I set the call limit to 1 to disable call waiting, then the user can't transfer calls because of the call limit.

Is there a way to make the call limit only apply to outside calls? Or another solution for disabling call waiting?

Anyone create any scripts to get around this?

Thanks,

Brian

Maybe best to handle in the phone?

call-limit=2

busy-level=1

That way, when they have one line up, in or out, Asterisk will consider them busy and not attempt to call the phone.

In the general section of sip.conf, you'll also want:

limitonpeer=yes

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Asterisk sip busy-level
Asterisk sip.conf: busylevel
13-August-08 - Contrary to popular belief this is only available in Asterisk trunk and Asterisk 1.6

Number of simultaneous calls until user/peer is busy

Currently (1.6.x) only works if call-limit is set

from UPGRADE-1.6.x.txt

* SIP: The "call-limit" option is marked as deprecated. It still works in this version of
Asterisk, but will be removed in the following version. Please use the groupcount functions
in the dialplan to enforce call limits. The "limitonpeer" configuration option is
now renamed to "counteronpeer".
