NAME

       astman -- a client to asterisk's manager interface

SYNOPSIS

       astman hostname

DESCRIPTION

       astman This program is a full-screen (terminal) client for Asterisk's manager interface.

OPTIONS

       hostname

       The  host  name or IP address to connect to (TCP port 5038). If astman fails to connect it
       will exit immidiately.

USAGE

       If astman has successfully cunnected to the manager port it will prompt  the  user  for  a
       username  and a secret (password) for the manager interface on the remote Asterisk manager
       interface. It will then be able to report existing channels (calls). You will then be able
       to redirect calls to or terminate them.

SEE ALSO

BUGS

       The hostname does not default to localhost.

       Impossible to use a port other than 5038.

       The username and password cannot be defined from the command-line.

       I mean, what's the point in a man page if the syntax is so simple?
