I’ve got asterisk 10.6 up and running. Most works, except for some minor issues, which are due to my inexperience with Asterisk / VOIP in general.
I’ve noticed one thing, which I can’t pinpoint :
When an incoming call occures, and I do an unattended xfer, the extension receiving the call sees the inbound callers number
When doing an supervised xfer, the extension receiving the call sees the number of the call that picked up the inbound call.
voip-info has a note on this : voip-info.org/wiki/view/Aste … tures.conf, which says :
Note The caller ID presented to the person you are trying to transfer the call to is not what you would expect - Asterisk sets your caller ID to be the extension the call originally arrived at which may not be the same as the extension the call was answered at. There doesn’t appear to be any way of getting the correct caller ID.
That is exactly what I’m seeing. Is there a to solve this ? In case it matters : I’m using Aastra 6757i (aka 57i) phones.
