This is probably more appropriate to the users list.

> My freeswitch server has been connected to a SIP provider's server (IDT server), and can dial out to  normal cellphone numbers.  Now I want to start a conference call using "conference <conf-name> dial ..." command, when the destination phones join the conference, the phone callers can't control the conference by pressing the keys specified in <caller-controls> section of conference.conf.xml. (In other words, if I press key '0', it can't mute myself; press '#', it can't hang up, etc. I use the default caller-controls group.)  I want to know in this situation, whether the cellphone's key tone can't be transferred to freeswitch server? Can freeswitch server only receive DTMF encapsulated in RTP packet transferred over IP?  I can control the conference when I use X-Lite as client, and freeswitch outputs following log when I press key '0' in X-Lite interface:
