I currently have a SPA-2102 adapter connected to a fax machine. How do I set up a dial plan where the SPA-2102 sent a preflix to Asterisk along with the call???

    To prefix you would do something like this,


    Where the <:123> will prefix 123 on any dialled number that fits the pattern xxxxxxx - which would be any 7 digit dial.  The <> part is actually a replacement command but putting nothing before the : will make it 'replace' nothing with the digital after the :.

    You will probably need to include entries to cover all possible dialling.  Possibly 7 digit, 10 digit and 11 digit dialling.  Each dialling pattern you need to be processed needs to be setup in the dial string.

    Here's a good tutorial that walks through the whole dialplan string.  I beleive the dialplan format is pretty much the same for all the SPA/linksys units.
