After years of working with Nortel and other PBX systems, Asterisk is truly a wonderful breath of fresh air.
I’d like to contribute to this wonderful open-source community by working on creating a really nice menu system for the MeetMe feature in Asterisk. However, I have a few questions that I’ve been unable to answer.
How do you change the tones played when someone joins/leaves a MeetMe conference? I’m referring to the little “blip” that is made when you join a MeetMe conference which does not have the option enabled to announce callers (there is still a little noise made though, instead of “Bob has joined the conference”)
This may be a really novice question, so I apologize, but is it possible to change the configuration files while asterisk is running and reload them? I found “asterisk -r -x reload” but I’m thinking it’s not safe, especially if the files have changed and a caller is already in a call queue. Is the only other option to call AGI scripts that pull information from elsewhere (database, etc.)?
Thanks for your time! Asterisk is really very cool.
