configure SPA-3000 to dial without answering?

I'm loaning my SPA-2000 and SPA-3000 to a friend who wants
to have his office line available to him at home. I thought
it would be a good experiment because I'd like to do similar
things eventually.

I have learned quite a bit about the SPA configurations but
I'm stumped by a detail.

The PSTN line of the SPA-3000 is configured to use a
dialplan of ":1234" to contact my Asterisk server. This is
the corresponding entry in extensions.conf.
exten => 1234,1,Dial(SIP/officephone)
(I'm just making it ring the office phone when the office
line is called for now.)

The problem is that as soon as the call appears on the PSTN,
the SPA-3000 goes off-hook and passes the call to Asterisk.
(I'm not sure of the order.) I don't want it to go off-hook
unless the call is answered.

I suspect that there's a special dialplan or dial command
option for this but I'm not seeing it in the Sipura User
Guide or in Asterisk's dial command. I would expect many
installations to want this functionality (and I've done it
without the SPA-3000) but I'm not finding references to it.

Any pointers?

Thank you.

Yes it is possible, needs a 'trick' but nothing too terrible I think. I
have a feeling that a lot of folks want this functionality, so I'm hoping
Sipura will address it directly at some point. In the meantime follow this

Ah! That *is* terrible (because it shouldn't be required) but it's wonderful
that someone figured out an end-run around Sipura. (Why does Sipura work so
hard at making good hardware difficult to use?)

Thank you for passing along the info!

Now I have to rethink my recent advice not to buy SPA-3000s...
