Music On Hold Help

We have a customer that does not care for the default MoH.

We have downloaded some royalty free music but it sounds ‘fuzzy’ when we
test it with the system.

We down sample it to 16bit, 8KHz, Mono. We have tried with Audacity,
CoolEdit Pro, & VLC.

Does someone have a file they can send me that we can test with, or has any

Much appreciated,

setting standard with asterisk


i’m managing a web conference website designed in flash. I have the
possibility to redirect rtmp streams to my asterisk server, but i now need
to provide a phone number to my customers so they can listen to the flash
based conference using a telephone. im new to voip so i don’t really know
where to start. Basically i need to get a phone number that will redirect
people to a menu where they set a code that allows them to enter the
matching conference…any clue ?

thanks :!


Junghanns douBRI miniPCI (b559) DAHDI drivers


I got a simple patch (merely extra PCI IDs for Junghanns douBRI miniPCI:

Sadly the reporter did not follow up on the report. I’d like to get at
least one positive report before I commit this. Anybody has this device
and wants it to work with DAHDI? Please update the bug report.

billsec=0 when using Local channel


I’ve got a dialplan that transfers all outgoing calls to a Local channel before dialling out via SIP.
I did this because sometimes i’m dialling two numbers at the same time and need to know which call is answered for billing purposes.

However, I’ve just noticed that billsec is always equal to 0 even though i know the calls were answered. I now have to take the cdrs from my provider and recalculate the billsec manually.

Any ideas why Local/ causes billsec to always be zero? Ive seen quite a few bug reports but no resolution.

I’m using 1.4.35.


Exceptionally long queue length queuing . . . .

I have the same problem, once in a while.

Curiously though, it occurs on a dedicated 100Mbps switched local network.

I’m running 1.4.31 * servers.


What is digium doing on port 113?

While on the subject,

what is digium doing on my port 113?

just from my logfile:
Oct 31 01:11:07 fw2 kernel: EXT; INC, INTRUDER IN=eth0 OUT= MAC=08:00:20:da:3b:4a:00:90:1a:42:70:d3:08:00
SRC= LEN=40 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=247 ID=15394 PROTO=TCP SPT=56211 DPT=113 WINDOW=0 RES=0x00 RST URGP=0

host domain name pointer lists.digium.com.

I’m not logged @digium, not compiling, not accessing list archives retieving svn’s

>From http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/support/help/MailArchives/idd/msg00983.html
Port 113 supports what is known as an IDENT service. Basically, it tries
to determine the remote user of a given client network connection.
Yesterday, our web server ( logged several connections from
mail.arilabs.com ( to which it attempts a connection on
port 113. If it is sucessful, it will determine the remote user who
connected. This service is widely used on Unix systems, but not really
supported on Windows or Mac operating systems.

So why is the list-server sending an ident-REQ to my IP?

It is blocked anyway, bur WHY???
