[Freeswitch-users] Re-2: Ruby and ESL help

Hello Diego,

I don't know ruby but I was playing around with outbound socket as well. You have to start your TCPServer and then listen for connections on port 8084 (if you want it like it is standard). If the TCPServer gets a connect request from FS you have to Accept the connection. In .NET this is TCPServer.Accept(). This Returns a TCPClient Object which represents a dedicated connection for this specific call. A new call creates a new TCPClient Object. After that you first have to send a Connect Message ("Connect\n\n") to FS. FS will answer immediately with all data belongig to the call.

If this all ist done you can send an Answer command and/or whatever you want.

Hope this helps...Guido

Btw.: If you find out how one can handle real blocked execution of commands I would like to know how. I tried to playback a long file and my problem was that FS answers immediately after FS accepts the command to play this file, but there is nothing that will ever give you a notice about the playback has ended, what is an unsolved problem for me.
