[HELP]: Changing TIMEOUT(absolute) during the call


I am quite new to Asterisk. My dialplan looks like this

exten => s,1,Set(TIMEOUT(absolute)=30)
exten => s,n,Dial(SIP/CISCO/7625689${DEST},30)

It works fine and the call is placed and times out after 30 seconds.

My problem is that after the call is answered (i.e during the call), i want to increase the timeout for the channel.
So after answering the channel when the call is established, lets say i want to increase the timeout to 60 seconds. Is it possible?


I found a way through …

Using AMI, i can resent the TIMEOUT(absolute) variable for the channel.
