Being new to Asterisk, but not to VOIP, I have installed the latest build of Asterisk. I have setup my SIP Provider, and 1 extention.
When calling my DID the call is sent to my asterisk from the provider properly, the INVITE contains my name in the FROM.
From: "Name Name " sip:NPANXXXXXX@22.214.171.124;tag=as3e47bd95
Now, it routes the call to my extension 6001, when it does, I see “New User” for the CALLERS NAME. Not “Name Name”. I have placed a NoOP, which displays:
Executing [NPANXXXXXX@DID_vitel-inbound:1] NoOp(“SIP/axis-08217238”, “New User”) in new stack
Can someone tell me why/what I may need to do which would allow me to receive the CALLER ID NAME in the SIP INVITE’s I receive?
RESOLUTION: To receive the caller name on inbound invites as it is presented to asterisk, I had to edit the users.conf file and add the line:
with nothing after the equals sign, and remove the first line of the conf file:
I assume this allowed the parser to populate the information from the SIP INVITE. Just FYI for any newbie like myself.
