Asterisk 1.4.4 Manager Not Responding

I have been unable to get asterisk 1.4.4 manager to respond to any commands I telnet to it and it does not even reply with a accepted or failed message. I’m trying to get flash panel to work with it and I have it on other version of asterisk no problems, but this is my first system on 1.4.4 and Manager is not responding to any message. In the asterisk -vr I do not see it even fail or success either.

  • Telnet Session *
    telnet localhost 5038

Asterisk Call Manager/1.0
USERNAME: myuser

(does not respond to anything I type)

  • Manager.conf *
    ;displaysystemname = yes
    enabled = yes
    ;webenabled = yes
    port = 5038
    ;httptimeout = 60
    bindaddr =
    ;displayconnects = yes

working example fo manager.conf:
auto dial out command can be case sensitive (but i’m not 100% sure)
try to use
Action: Login

i use 1.4.2 and placed for test 194 call files today (diffent filename) using
mv *.call /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing and everything goes fine
in the same second (or two, i didn’t count)
