>From what I am aware you can't use FreeSWITCH to control a softphone
directly though you can make it do things that will have a similar end
result. You could set eyeBeam to auto-answer calls if you want them to
answer right away or orginiate a call that is auto-answered but not bridge
the call until a user on the eyeBeam presses a digit or a socket control
tells it to connect the two ends. You can also use FreeSWITCH to place the
line on hold using event sockets, this will place it on hold in the server
and not directly like placing it on hold in eyeBeam (i.e. the hold button in
eyeBeam likely wont show it as being on hold).

Beyond that if you want to directly control the clients you would need to
look at getting an API access into the eyeBeam client.

I hope this will help.
