I use the Linksys 3102 to connect Asterisk to a POTS line, and XLite
on XP as an SIP client:
The problem is that by default, Asterisk doesn’t rewrite the CID name
+ number in incoming calls, so that XLite displays whatever name I
used in the 3102 and the extension the 3102 uses to register with
How can I tell Asterisk to rewrite the CID name + number so that XLite
displays the actual caller’s information instead?
Since the 3102 does display the real caller information in its Voice >
Info page, I assume Asterisk is getting this information and could
rewrite the CID information before ringing XLite, but I don’t know how
to do this.
