Caller ID issues

Hello all!

I’m having some issues with setting caller IDs. There are 2 problems that I would like to solve.

  1. I have a DID pointing to a ring group. The only ‘extension’ in that ring group is an external number (cell phone). So essentially the DID fwds to a cell phone. The problem is that the CID that shows up on the Cell phone is the number that’s set on the outgoing trunk the the CALLERS #. Is there a simple way to override this? Or better yet, is there a prefered method for forwarding calls out with freePBX?

  2. I have sevaral trixbox installs connected through DUNDI. The DUNDI works very well… I can call local extensions from every PBX. The PBX’s are connected via an IAX trunk. In freePBX I’ve created a custom trunk that accepts a 4 digit extension and puts the call into a ‘trydundi’ context. The problem I’m having is that whenever someone calls from an extension at one location to an extension at another location the CallerID that shows up at the other location is the one set either in #1 The custom trunk, or #2 in the ‘Outbound CID’ field in the users screen. What I WANT this to be set to is the Name of the extension ie. just like local calls are. Is there a way to do this painlessly. Is it possible to hook dundi into a different context so that it would think all calls are local… I’m kinda guessing here.

Sorry about the length of these descriptions and thanks for any advice!

I am having the same issue. Anybody know how to do this?

I don’t think that’s what I mean. What I WANT to happen is that I want the CID of the Caller (whoever that might be), forwarded on to the cell phone. Now that I’m thinking about it, I don’t know that thise even makes sense as the caller is actually the Ring Group.

Is there a better way to to call forwarding out of the system?[/quote]

Can’t help you with #2 but the answer to #1 is to put the caller ID’s under
each of the extensions and not under the SIP Trunk. It’s a bit of a pain
because you have to type it in for each but that’s the only way I have found
to make it work.

Hello all!

I’m having some issues with setting caller IDs. There are 2

    The DUNDI works very well… I can call local extensions from

dumeinst, can you post some of your dundi setup info. I’m working on it and would like to compare what I have done to others. Thanks.
