Hello everyone. I have been messing with the p option of the dial application which enables the privacy mode. For those who don’t know about this, it forces the caller to state their name when they call someone. The one called is then played back the name and given the option to accept the call or send it to voicemail, etc. So far everything works exactly as it says.
My problem is this. After a person records their name, they can hear the ringing as the connection is attempted. When the called individual picks up the phone and the options are being played back to them, the caller hears nothing until either the person accepts the call or sends them to voicemail. Is there a way to playback something while the called individual is deciding to either accept or reject the call? Maybe On Hold Music or have it continually ring. Is there an option I’m overlooking? One other thing.
I notice it only does it when the person is required to record their name. If their name is already recorded in /var/lib/asterisk/sound/priv-callerintros then asterisk will playback a ring while the called person is hearing the privacy mode options. As always any help given is appreciated.
