Answer Machine Detection


I am currently trying to setup answer machine detection on our Asterisk server, which is configured using FreePBX

I have followed the information on the page below:

I have been unable to get this feature working. I receive no output from the Asterisk console when I dial a number with an answering machine service enabled on the line.

To be honest, I am a little unsure as to what output I should be expecting from Asterisk when it detects an answering machine.

I have ensured that the module is loaded, and the configuration file for it is in the /etc/asterisk directory.

Would someone be able to offer some pointers o how to get this working?

The Asterisk server I am running was installed from a AsteriskNOW LiveCD and this is trunked to an Armstrong SIP service, which I can make calls through successfully.

Asterisk version is installed on the server.

Please forgive me if I have forgotten any important information.

Many thanks for your time,
