ant-phone - an interactive ISDN telephone application
ant-phone is part of ANT (ANT is Not a Telephone). It let's you make and receive telephone calls and talk via sound devices. It uses CAPI 2.0 as ISDN interface.
ant-phone accepts the following options: -h, --help Show summary of options -v, --version Print version information -r, --cleanup Remove stale socket file left by accident by a previous run of ANT. You only need this option if ANT says: "local bind: Address already in use" -d, --debug[=debuglevel] Print additional runtime debugging data to stdout, debuglevel = 1..4 -i, --soundin=device ALSA device name for input (recording), default: "default" -o, --soundout=device ALSA device name for output (playback), default: "default" -m, --msn=msn identifying MSN (for outgoing calls), 0 for master MSN of this termination/port, default: 0 -l, --msns=msns MSNs to listen on, semicolon-separated list or '*', default: * -c, --call=number Make a running instance of ANT make a call to the specified number, useful for calling from an external address book application -s, --sleep Shut down CAPI connection to prepare for removal of broken kernel modules, which don't survive suspend/restore. -w, --wakeup Restore CAPI connection after ISDN modules loaded again. The connection will be also restored by dialing a number, but before the connection is restored, you won't be able to accept calls.
If the used sound devices (arguments of --soundin and --soundout) are equal, a full duplex sound device is needed.

Caller ID stores hangup reason localized. This will break, if someone uses letters outside of English alphabet for translation of hangup reasons.
