If you are reading my blog you should know that I’m developing a “tool” that integrates XMPP and VoIP (I’m using Openfire and Asterisk). This tool, that I’m calling AstDemo in its alpha phase, allows you to do some VoIP operations that can be started directly from your preferred XMPP client.
Despite the fact that AstDemo is in its alpha state, I released a public version in my server to permit that other people can test it too. This version have just a few features, but it’ll be a proof of concept and will help in bugs identification and in tool improvement.
The available commands are:
- info <voip|xmpp> – show VoIP or XMPP informations.
- help – show this help.
- call <number> – Make a call to informed number and play some audio messages using GoogleTTS, finishing with tt-monkeys audio file playback.
- version – show script version.
I’d like to invite everyone that are interested in this integration to test AstDemo and its features. I’ll appreciate your comments, suggestions and bug reports.
How to test AstDemo?
To test AstDemo you have to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your roster. After that, you just need to send messages to this JID.
Why can’t I make calls?
For obvious reasons I blocked the call feature. If you’d like to test it, contact me in my e-mail or my XMPP account (email@example.com) to integrate our servers (SIP or IAX available). After this procedure you will allowed to make calls for your extensions using your own XMPP account.
See you soon.
