[App_rpt] Advisory: Changing the courtesy tones

Advisory

To change the courtesy tones from defaults it is necessary to have a 
telemetry=telemetry statement defined in each node configuration block in 
rpt.conf 

The default configuration files distributed with asterisk DO NOT have this 
statement in them. 

If the statement is left out, the courtesy tone lists in rpt.conf in the 
telemetry section will never be read in, and the defulat settings in 
app_rpt.c will always be used.

Steve.

By looking at the code you referenced I discovered the possible need for a
'telemetry = telemetry' statement in the node definition. As soon as I added
that line the tones changed from default to the ones defined in the config
file.

I am going to assume this was the problem and it is supposed to work that
way so you can define different telemetry for each node?

FYI my sample config did not have that line in it and there is no reference
I have found indicating it is required.

Thanks for your help.

Gary
