Call Ended (486 Busy Here)

Postby mpelletier92 » 04/12/2019

Hi all,

Been using Freephoneline on my OBi200 for around 2 months now. It's great I love it.

The only issue I'm having so far is that the line drops randomly ... sometimes once a week sometimes two times in a row.

It ain't a critical issue but I'd like to at least try to fix it.

I took a look at the Call History in the OBi200's GUI and I noticed this error: Call Ended (486 Busy Here)

If any of you has an idea I'd be glad to try it.

Thanks for reading.

486 Busy Here

"The callee's end system was contacted successfully, but the callee is
currently not willing or able to take additional calls at this end
system. The response MAY indicate a better time to call in the
Retry-After header field. The user could also be available
elsewhere, such as through a voice mail service. Status 600 (Busy
Everywhere) SHOULD be used if the client knows that no other end
system will be able to accept this call."

If the callee has a call capacity issue (FPL only allows 2 channels at any time, for example: 1 incoming and 1 outgoing call) or is otherwise rejecting calls, you'll receive that error.
