Did you compile asterisk with DAHDI support? i.e Did you install DAHDI,
then run ./configure on Asterisk Source and then install? Or did you
install asterisk first, then DAHDI? I’ve successfully used DAHDI with
Asterisk 1.4, so there must be some issue. Please give us information
about how you installed everything.

Caller id issues

First of all, I want apologize for the first two blank emails that I sent out by mistake.

I have Xorcom USB fxo channel bank, asterisk 1.6, freepbx 2.8. Up to now, the lines connected from Telekom did not have caller id feature enabled, now that we enabled we cannot see incoming caller id shown. However it shows up if I connect a normal analogue phone with LCD screen to show caller id feature.

So my question is – is there any specific settings I need to do for it to show caller id?

Call status register

Hi all!

Some time ago I’m using Asterisk (currently at home to manage
the calls. Nothing yet very complex, just something compiled by me using
the source code from the official site of the project and configuring
the files manually to both Asterisk and DAHDI. For now I’m not using any
GUI, but when I have more time, I plan to try something in the future,
for example, to make a statistic of the calls.

But, thinking about the statistics of the calls, in the last days I was
taking a look at the /var/log/asterisk/cdr-csv/Master.csv file, which I
understand is where the calls are registered. But all seem to have a
“ANSWERED” state, even those receiving a busy tone. This happens with
both internal calls between SIP extension and from SIP to PSTN.

A test I did is putting a Grandstream BT200 on DND mode (Do Not Disturb)
and call it from a softphone. While the softphone receives the message
that the extension is busy, the CDR registered the call as “ANSWERED”.

Not sure if it’s something usually due to the way it is configured the
dialplan or any other configuration issue.

Thanks in advance for your reply.


Caller ID problem

I’m running asterisk
FreePBX 2.8.1
IP Phone Yealink T20

Trustrpid and sendrpid is on the sip.conf

Let say I pickup a call on ext A using *8, the caller’s caller ID
successfully passed to my phone. I decide to pass the call to ext B.
On phone B, it display ext A not the original’s caller ID. I want on
phone B it display the caller’s caller ID.

Is there any solution for this? I already googling this for around a
week but found no solution yet :(

Thanks and BR,
