AMP (Asterisk Management Portal)

AMP is a web GUI that allows the configuration of Asterisk without the need for editing config files. If you use AMP be careful not to make manual changes to the config files that will affect AMP�s operation.

Flash Operator Panel

Flash Operator Panel is a real-time web interface to Asterisk. You can see what all of your extensions, trunks, and conferences are doing. We have extension 200 set up for testing. This is a live extension and will work as soon as a phone is registered to ext 200. The rest of the buttons are dummy objects for examples.

The op_buttons.conf file has all of the configs for each button in Flash Operator Panel you can edit this using the Config Edit button on the maint menu. You must reboot the Asterisk or restart the panel service after you make changes. The normal config files for Flash Operator Panel end in .cfg we changed them to .conf so they would match the other Asterisk files.

Cisco XML Services

Asterisk@Home has a Cisco XML Services that can be used to look up contacts in a database. Click on Web Address Book from the Asterisk@Home main menu. (user: admin password: password) and enter all of your contacts and their phone numbers.

Music On Hold (mpg123)

Asterisk@Home has now uses mpg123 for music on hold. Put a call on hold and they hear music not dead air!

Fax support (SpanDSP)

SpanDSP allows Asterisk to receive faxes. You can set this up in AMP.
