I wonder if anyone can help with FreePBX +Asterisk 1.8.7 + Web-meetme. I followed on the howto here http://www.markinthedark.nl/news/ubuntu-linux-unix/75-install-web-meetme-402-for-freeppbx-28-with-asterisk-18-on-centos-55.html and it seem to work as expected. the only thing I don’t get it which number should I dial in order to get to the room? Conference Number in the web portal doesn’t work. Is there something I need to do in the freepbx? Like for example here - http://fonality.com/trixbox/node/29600 I try this without any luck. Maybe u can help? thanks

The latest Web Meetme uses realtime and ODBC. Assuming you have the ODBC connector working (check ODBC in Asterisk) all you have to do is add code to /etc/asterisk/extensions_custom.conf

exten => 598,1,Answer
exten => 598,2,Wait(1)
exten => 598,3,MeetMe
exten => 598,4,Hangup

This example uses extension 598. You then set a misc. destination to the extensions you specified and use that as the destination of the router.

Thank you

Spent 10 hours on this without any luck :slight_smile:

Did the below code work for you?


I installed Webmeetme based on the tutorial on http://www.markinthedark.nl/news/ubuntu-linux-unix/75-install-web-meetme-402-for-freeppbx-28-with-asterisk-18-on-centos-55.html.
On a Cent Os 5.4, asterisk 1.8 freepbx 2.10 system.

I can create conferences and dial into d conference using ur above code. but when i try to join to the conference, I get “that is not a valid conference number please try again”

This is what the log looks like;
