TITLE: #229 - Dialling Prefixes and Suffixes KEYWORDS: dial dialling prefix suffix access code RELEASE: Faximum ELS/PLUS 4 Faximum FMS 2 CLASSIFICATION: All PROBLEM: Customer wishes to add a sequence of digits to be dialled before and/or after the phone number itself. While this has always been possible with Faximum PLUS by enabling Intelligent Dialling and using the Dialling Rules (see the Faximum ELS/PLUS Reference Manual), a new simpler method has been added in Faximum ELS and PLUS 4. CAUSE: N/A SOLUTION: Edit the fax line configuration file(s) for the specified line(s) and add lines of the form: dial-prefix = "9,," dial-suffix = ",,5777" Obviously (a) you need to replace these strings with the actual digits and punctuation you wish to dial before and/or after the fax number, and (b) you can define either a prefix or a suffix or both. The fax-line configuration files are normally found in the directory /var/faximum/dev or /etc/opt/faximum/dev depending on the product, platform, and version. For example, the fax line configuration file for the first line is normally fax-line-1, the second is normally fax-line-2, etc. and etc. TechNote: 229 - Copyright 2001-3 Faximum Software Inc., All Rights Reserved.
