ChanSpy options used for only listen to both channels

trying to make work ChanSpy to listen to both channels spied.
Options used:

  • B instead of whispering on a single channel barge in on both channels involved in the call.
  • E Exit when the spied-on channel hangs up.
  • S Stop when no more channels are left to spy on.
  • o Only listen to audio coming from this channel.

Options tried seem not to be working but I don’t know what other options would work.

Using Asterisk 18.16.0

ChanSpy spies on a single channel, and provides audio going to and from it. This is the default behavior. What exactly happens instead?

I have successfully done spying in the past, using a very simple context setup:

exten => s,1,Playback(monitored)
exten => s,n,ChanSpy(${VICTIM})
exten => s,n,Hangup()

This lets you specify the “victim” channel to be spied on in the ${VICTIM} variable, when originating a call between this context and the channel doing the spying.

My quick-and-dirty spy_try example from this repo might be useful.
