  • DTMF detection issues when Mobile->SIP February 19, 2017
    Hi, I am running asterisk 11.22.0 (thanks to Terry) on an AR150, and I seem to be having a strange DTMF tone detection issue. I built a simple IVR menu where Background (and/or WaitExten) (I tried both) are used to redirect the user calling on the mobile network to a user on the SIP/Softphone
