[Freeswitch-users] ** Feature Code

As you know, dialing **<number> picks up a ringing call (i.e. Directed Call
Pickup).  However, I noticed yesterday that it will also take a call away
from another phone even after it is already connected.  Here is the

1) 5382 calls 5403.
2) 5403 answers and two-way talk path.
3) 5381 dials **5403
4) 5403 loses call.
5) 5382 and 5382 two-way talk path.

Is there a way to keep the Directed Call Pickup feature, but prevent taking
over the call after connect?

Thanks And Best Regards,
