There is a pre release (experimental) version of app_rpt.c at:

http://zapatatelephony.org/app_rpt.pre-046-4.c

This version supports the following additional features:

1. Hot reload of rpt.conf from the asterisk command line. Typing "rpt reload"
will reload rpt.conf without causing a restart of the application and without
disconnecting any links. Note: changing node number stanzas ( n square
brackets) will still require that app_rpt be restarted.

2. Restart of app_rpt from the command line without having to restart
asterisk. Typing "rpt restart" will restart app_rpt, but leave the rest of
asterisk running.

3. Far end disconnect support on the autopatch with the patchfarenddisconnect
setting in the node configuration block. if farenddisconnect is set to 1
(farenddisconnect=1) then when the called party hangs up, the call terminated
message will be played. Setting farenddisconnect to 0 keeps the original
default behavior of going to congestion if the called party hangs up.


4. Automatic disconnect during dialing if a radio user goes out of range. The
patchdialtime setting in the node configuration block does this. This value
is in milliseconds. For example a 20 second timer would be configured by
setting patchdialtime to 20000 (patchdialtime=20000). This timer resets when
ever a dtmf digit is dialed, and is also used to limit the time the
congestion tone is played if asterisk declares there is no route to a number.
The default is patchdialtime=0 which disables the dial timer.


5. The patchnoct setting in the node configuration block can be used to
suppress the CT during an autopatch. Setting patchnoct to 1 (patchnoct=1)
will suppress the courtesy tone during an autopatch, and setting patchnoct to
0 will keep the default behaviour. The default is patchnoct=0.


6. Override of the autopatch connect message. The patchup setting in the
telemetry block allows the user to specify a file, morse message or tone
sequence instead of the default message of "connecting". The syntax is the
same used by all of the other entries in the telemetry block. The default is
patchup=rpt/callproceeding.


7. Override the autopatch disconnect message. The patchdown setting in the
telemetry block, allows the user to specify a file, morse message or tone
sequence instead of the default message "call terminated". The syntax is the
same used by all of the other entries in the telemetry block. The default is:
patchdown=rpt/callterminated


If you are running a tarball release of asterisk version 1.27.1 or earlier,
you will need to uncomment the "OLD_ASTERISK" line at the top of app_rpt.c
This is because the SVN version has undergone a lot of change in relation to
the stable tarballs.


A note of caution: This is test code, use at your own risk.

We would be delighted if others tested it for us and reported any problems
with it before we release it on Digium SVN.
