[arm-allstar] Custom Functions not Working

  I am not sure exactly what you are doing. The commands that are in the
default rpt.conf that are active and that call scripts do work and do play
the sounds. Are they not working for you? They play to the node indicated
but that node must be on that server and of course you must be listening on
something connected to that node to hear it. Some play to $NODE1 which is
defined as your first node.

If you are writing your own scripts you must use complete paths to any
files out of the search path such as sound files. If you have a script that
does not work pass it on and I can take a look at it. Also is your DTMF
working properly? For instance when you type *A1  on the radio talking to
your node are you seeing those character being decoded in the client? The
additional command in the functions stanza are not all active. Some have
semicolons before them and you would have to remove the semicolon, save the
file and restart asterisk.

As far as the sip stuff goes I have no idea. I doubt very much it is a DNS
issue in general. It could be something at your end. I don't see any
connection between sip being configured and DNS.
