Go into /var/log/asterisk/messages, on the last reload it will show you the
indications country. Otherwise type reload and watch carefully. One of the
first thing that will happen will be deleting the current indications code
and then establishing a new one.

Yes, the way I tested was to answer the call from PSTN and go straight 
into Ringing.
I didn't even dial a phone and still get the incorrect ring tone.  I 
have double checked the country=za in indications.conf.
Strange thing is I have this working on another box ok.

Is there a way to check the default country setting in the CLI?

Garth
