Asterisk as a caller ID

Report
Question

In a 1.4.24 system, out of several lines, one of ours gets 1 or more random
calls a day with "Asterisk" as the caller ID. I have just seen this described in the last couple of weeks, but at the time
it wasn't happening to us, and I the explanation didn't stick with me. Can anyone give me a pointer to this "feature"? Searching the message base
for "Asterisk" seems futile. Thanks! Cary Fitch

Friend/user/peer in plain English?

Report
Question

Hello I've done some googling, but still puzzled at my working
configuration. Apparently, a "user" can only receive calls through Asterisk, a "peer"
can only make calls, and a "friend" can do both. If that's correct, I don't understand why my VOSP requires the
following settings in sip.conf to let my Asterisk server make/receive
calls to/from the PSTN: =============
[general]
...
register => me:pass@vosp.com [vosp_outgoing]
type=peer
host=vosp.com
username=me
secret=pass
fromuser=me
fromdomain=vosp.com
nat=yes
canreinvite=no
qualify=yes [vosp_incoming]
;why not type=user?
type=peer
host=vosp.com

hint not working

Question

I'm trying to migrate from MeetMe to ConfBridge: [conferences]
exten=>_8[1-9],1,Answer()
;;exten=>_8[1-9],1,Meetme(${EXTEN},1Ms,1234)
exten=>_8[1-9],2,ConfBridge(${EXTEN},1Ms)
exten=>_8[1-9],n,Hangup
And that works. Also changed the hints: ;;exten => 81,hint,MeetMe:81
exten => 81,hint,ConfBridge:81
;;exten => 82,hint,MeetMe:82
exten => 82,hint,ConfBridge:82
;;exten => 83,hint,MeetMe:83
exten => 83,hint,ConfBridge:83
;;exten => 84,hint,MeetMe:84
exten => 84,hint,ConfBridge:84 And that does not work. The blf does not go on when a party is in
ConfBridge. Is there some new syntax for hints with ConfBridge? sean
