Asterisk 11 Dial option r


In moving from Asterisk 1.8 to Asterisk 11, the r option for the Dial application seems to have changed from:

> r: Generate a ringing tone for the calling party, passing no audio from the called channel(s) until one answers. Without this option, Asterisk will generate ring tones automatically where it is appropriate to do so; however, “r” will force Asterisk to generate ring tones, even if it is not appropriate.


> r - Default: Indicate ringing to the calling party, even if the called party isn’t actually ringing. Pass no audio to the calling party until the called channel has answered.

The thing that affects me is it’s changed from not being set by default to being set by default. I don’t want it set and there appears to be no option for removing this default behaviour.

Does anyone have any suggestions?


If you don’t put in the dial options then it is not being used.
