Function Codes - [functions48253]

Edit /etc/asterisk/Rpt.conf. Search for "[functions<NodeID>]", which in my case is [functions48253]. Here you will find information about DTMF function codes specific to your site. The Function Code is linked to the Link Commands in the above table.



This is the functions section cut from my Rpt.conf file. Note the ilink that achieves the link between the Function and the Command.

Macro Commands

Macro or Custom Cammands are setup in this section of Rpt.conf. I have added two macro's to act like speed dialing. If I enter *53 I will connect to CQ-UK. Note the macro must end with "#".

DTMF Tones

All AllStarLink DTMF decoding is accomplished using DSP software which is already part of the Asterisk PBX application. This DSP DTMF code offers very good performance.
