Hello experts,
I have an Asterisk server with TDM800. When there is an incoming call, the Asterisk is answering as usual. How may I make it ignore incoming calls and doesn't answer them?

    Dear Muhajreen,

    In your dial plan (in extensions.conf) do not answer the call. Instead use hangup.

    For example,

    exten => s,1,Hangup

    If you want to record call in your cdr but not answer the call, do the following:

    exten => s,1,Wait(2)
    exten => s,2,Hangup

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you for your quick help.

    Now Asterisk is not answering the call, and this is exactly what I needed.
