I am having a problem getting conferencing to work. I have set up a simple meetme.conf and added an extension in extensions.conf, but I keep receiving a “that is not a valid conference number” message when I try to connect to the conference room. I have searched on this forum and googled the topic and have seen where there are a couple of “gotchas” for this particular error, but I can’t seem to get anything to work. Any help/suggestions would be most appreciated.
===some pertinent details===
OS = FC3 with 2.6.11-1.35_FC3 kernel
Hardware = single port fx0 card (clone); Celeron 2.4Ghz with Intel 865 board and 512MB RAM
I am using Xlite soft phones for this setup and can both place/receive calls (SIP and PSTN) fine.
===dmesg output ===

I do an lsmod and the zaptel module is listed and lspci shows the card.
