I want to be able to monitor (jump in a call without indicating the caller or the callee of my presence) calls on my asterisk server. Voip-Info tells me that I should use ChanSpy but I am not exactly sure how to do it? Basically, I dial a number (e.g. 258) and then enter an extension (e.g. 8467) to start monitoring the call. When done, I can press asterisk() to enter another extension. I will add a simple authentication method once the basic needs are met, so that only authorised people can monitor the calls. Can some one please provide me some guidance in this regard? This is what my current entry looks like (in extensions.conf):
When I dial this extension, I see the call is connected but I am unable to monitor. Help would be appreciated (specially in the form of real life examples).
