    Hello all,

    I have connected several BRI lines to my elastix box.
    Now, when I do a call to an external call, the number that displays at the external party is not the extension number, but the 'default' number of the BRI line. Does anybody know how to define that the extension number is diplayed?

    Thanks a lot for any feedback !

    Regards,
    Fabianus

    Make sure you can control the CallerID on your BRI lines. SOme provider doesn't accept you to set the CallerID yourself, if you are sure that you can set the CallerID yourself, in the extention configuration there's a setting called Outbound CID that should take care of this. If not, I can't say.

    Myself on my SIP provider I can set the CID name but I have no control over the CID number if I try to force an other number they replace it with my subscription number, but the custom name stay.
