Special Conference Room


Hi list,

I am in need of a "special" asterisk conference room with the following constraints:

- there is one admin / moderator and several "normal" callers. - the callers must not hear any other caller, only the moderator - the moderator must be able to mute and unmute any caller at any time - the moderator must be able to talk to all callers or to a specific caller. - the modetator must be able to kick off any caller at any time...

Any hints on how to realize that are highly appreciated..

Thanx in advance, yves

Park function and billsec


When a call comes in and is parked using the Park() command it appears that
the billing seconds do not include the time while the caller was parked. Is
there a simple way to correct this with an option or setting in asterisk.
