[Freeswitch-users] Loopback and bypass_media

Thanks Michael,

pseudo code would look this.

1) Call 6095556666 and 7325556666 simultaneously.
2a) As you dial 6095556666 go to the next carrier if you receive
2b) As you dial 7325556666 go to the next carrier if you receive
3) The first number to answer and accept the call - bridge to leg a.
Drop the other.

Brian maintains that this can be done without loopback and loopback
should never be used. Mike Jerris believes that loop back handles this
and should be used. I am happy for all the help, but I am a bit
confused at this stage.

If this can not be done in the dailplan then I will need to pursue
loopback and see how far I get with that. At the moment it works but
not with bypass_media.

As I said "call followme" and carrier failover are fairly common
requirements so I do feel I am missing something. This must be
implemented elsewhere.

Again - thank you all for your help. You do a great job of getting
getting your heads around all this stuff day in day out.
