[Freeswitch-users] Detecting multiple tones with freeswitch

I'm with Jerris on the reliability issue, but if you can't switch carriers
and they won't budge on sending the audio inline then you're pretty much
stuck with what you've got. I do know that the tone_detect app works well.
It's been years since I've done anything with it so I'm a bit rusty. In
your case what I would do is use the execute_on_tone_detect to issue an
info app. I think you might have a value in there somewhere that will help
you differentiate between whether busy or ring was detected.

I wish you well. This is not a fun endeavor...

> You can never reliably depend on the tones, particularly with international traffic.  This is never going to work reliably unless you get useful sip signaling.  I would be demanding the carrier change settings back.
