Hey, Im wondering how to get my asterisk to run commands while the channels are bridged?
lets say im dialing out some number
the person connects and I can talk to em
if I want I can press *300 and turn on monitoring (conversatrion recording)
and then press *301 to turn it off

Is that possible? How do i force asterisk to go thru the menus after using the Dial() command in the dialplan?

Have a look in features.conf as there is an entry there like 'automon => *1                   ; One Touch Record'.
See if that works.

Are you using SIP or the IAX protocol?

Using features.conf should have worked. The entry I quoted is in there but disabled by default.
