MeetMe not working with AsteriskNow 1.5 Beta

Hello all,

I’ve installed AsteriskNow 1.5 Beta (iso-file) on a PC without any other hardware.
I try to setup a conference call with only SIP-clients but I hear the following when I’m trying to call: "That is not a valid conference number. Please try again."
In the log I found following:
[Nov 19 13:14:50] WARNING[11392] app_meetme.c: Unable to open pseudo device

This what I configured in my configuration files:
conf => 600


exten => _9XXX,1,Dial(SIP/${EXTEN},20)
exten => _9XXX,n,Voicemail(u${EXTEN})
exten => _9XXX,n,Voicemail(b${EXTEN})
exten => _9XXX,n,Hangup

exten => 600,1,MeetMe(600)

When I do a “rpm -qa | grep asterisk” I get the following:

Is there a dummy driver needed (for timing, like the old ztdummy) when no extra hardware is installed. Or is this already done when using AseriskNow 1.5 beta.

I’m not sure what the installation of the gui installs, but you do need a dummy timing device in order for MeetMe to work. The error that it could not open a psuedo device either means it wasn’t installed, or is not currently loaded. It would either be provided from Zaptel or DAHDI.

I suppose that is installed since I’ve the package asterisk-dahdi-1.4.22-1_centos5. But I’ve to admit, I’m a linux and asterisk newbie.

How do I load the dummy driver?
