Hi, I have two asterisk boxes, one with asterisk 1.8.12.0 and the other

Polycom firmware 4.0.1 and paging

Report
Question

Hi, I just moved many Polycom phones from firmware v3 to 4.0.1b. Anto-Answer
simply stopped functioning. I can downgrade and make it work, upgrading
kills it again. There obviously is a difference in how the newer firmware is
treating this auto answer sip header. Can anybody tell me if they have Polycom firmware 4.x.x working with
auto-answer/paging? Just so I know it's worth my time to investigate, as
opposed to knowing it`s a Polycom firmware bug? If so, did you have to make
any changes to the SIP header sent to make Polycom phones…

Binding to 0.0.0.0 a security risk?

difference between playback and background?

Report
Question

In the dial plan language of asterisk, what is the difference between prompting the user with a Playback() command vs. a Background() command? I want in a part of my dial plan to ask the user a prompt, and wait for 4 digits to be typed in. I don't want the user to have to end the string with a pound or something, just wait 2 seconds after they stop typing. ANd I do want the prompt to be interruptible if the user is fast and knows already what to do… I need to do some tests on the number…

No ringback even though progressinband=yes is set

Report
Question

Steve. Thanks for the insight. I won't pretend to know what "early-audio" is, but I guess I'm about to find out :-). Also, I believe that I have a nearly identical setup like this with the exact same SIP provider w/o any trouble. However, I think that system must be running asterisk 1.4 or 1.2 (my guess is 1.4, but I'll have to check to confirm). Is there a significant difference between 1.2/1.4 & 1.6 in this scenario? Thanks a million!! :-) -

Difference mohsuggest & mohinterpret

Report
Question

Hello list, what is the difference between mohsuggest & mohinterpret when defining a
SIP peer ?! If a certain SIP peer puts another channel on hold, what field then
determines the moh class that Asterisk will choose to play to that channel ?
If I take the test and call from peer A to peer B, and peer A puts peer
B in hold, then the class of peer B is taken... that's not what I want. If I call an external number from peer A, and put this channel on hold,
then the…
