AMI Asterisk Manager Interface Pros/Cons & Reliability?

Hello all, I’d like to know of any pros & cons in using the Asterisk Manager Interface (AMI) in addition to its reliability.

I understand that there is no security on the manager interface aside from a clear text password & restricting IP addresses. Are there any alternatives to AMI?

I appreciate any responses.



But to be honest teh AMI shouldnt be exposed you need to use middle ware to connect to it, and allow access only from the localhost


Thanks for the reply, Ian. Would you happen to know the latest AMI version? I’ve been looking for reviews on it without much luck.
