The 'context' setting in the trunk configuration doesnt seem to do anything, I have one trunk configured between the thirdlane box and an Alcatel PBX (internal) with 'context=from-inside' configured in the trunk configuration, and another trunk to an external SIP provider for calls out to the PSTN etc.
But incoming calls from the internal PBX come in using 'from-outside' context, see trunk config from sip.conf below for configuration:
The only way to make incoming call use the 'from-inside' is to up date the global 'context=from-outside' (default) in sip.conf.... but this changes all external inbound trunks.
I would have expected outgoing calls made across a trunk with 'context=from-inside' to use 'Internal Caller ID' instead of the 'External Caller ID Number'?
The Administrator's Guide all says the following for trunk configuration, but specifying a caller id in the config for the trunk being used does not override the outgoing caller id?
Caller ID. (SIP, IAX) Caller id associated with the trunk. You can
specify both the numeric caller id and a
readable name. Note: it is not recommended
to specify caller id as this will override any
other caller id settings.
Any help would be much appreciated.
