Hello all,

I’m having trouble setting the callerid name and number independently
with the following configuration:

Asterisk 10.0.0-beta2
DAHDI Version: 2.5.0 Echo Canceller: HWEC, MG2
libpri version: 1.4.12
Allstream PRI 23+D / dms100

Test cases:

(1) Using the form:
same => n,Set(CALLERID(all)=”AB&CD COMPANY” <5191112222>)
same => n,Dial(Dahdi/G1/5193334444)
both the caller ID and name are passed correctly to the called party

(2) However, if we try to set the number and name separately
same => n,Set(CALLERID(name)=”AB&CD COMPANY”)
same => n,Set(CALLERID(number)=5191112222)
same => n,Dial(Dahdi/G1/5193334444)
then with some called numbers, we get a congestion message (“All
circuits are busy”) unless the first CALLERID(name) line is commented
With other numbers the call completes, but the received callerid shows
as: “CALLERID(all): “” <5191112222>”

Is there some subtle difference between these two methods, or would
anyone have some experience with this?

Thanks for any comments, and Happy Friday!

  • Same result:
    Executing [s@incoming:3] NoOp(“SIP/choicetel-00000092”,
    “CALLERID(all): “” <5191112222>“) in new stack

  • You do not need to quote the name here. Otherwise, the quotes
    are included as part of the name. Everything between the ‘=’
    and closing ‘)’ less leading and trailing spaces is part of the
    name. For SIP this may be detrimental to the message format
    unless the quotes get escaped.


  • Thank you. Omitting the quotes on CALLERID(NAME) line seems to be the
    solution. This works:

    same => n,Set(CALLERID(name)=AB&CD COMPANY)
    same => n,Set(CALLERID(number)=5191112222)
    same => n,Dial(Dahdi/G1/5193334444)

    It is strange, though, that with quotes in, the call actually fails
    with congestion, and only with certain numbers dialed (all 10-digit
    local area dialing). Some sort of error message would be nice. 🙂

    This help is much appreciated!
