Hi All;

Asterisk 1.8.11-cert1

I need to do the following, how?

If my extension is 500 and I need to call the extension 501, so when dialing 501, then I need to be able to see the name of the 501 (for example, the name was: Mike, so I need to see at my IP Phone that I am calling Mike which is the name of the destination).

How?

Regards Bilal

  • Hi,

    You need to set rpid on the calling phone settings, if that phone knows what to do with RPID. Then you need to set allowrpid=yes in the sip peer settings of A party and B party. I did that on CISCO 79X0 phones and it worked perfectly,

  • AFAIK there’s no such feature on IP Phone to retrieve Caller ID before dialing, because Caller ID on IP Phones is manually set on the Phone, the best thing that you can do is manually match the destination Phone’s Caller ID in the source Phone’s Address Book

  • It’s look like I’m wrong, didn’t read your reply first, don’t know there’s such feature, very nice info 😀

  • The IP Phones that I am using is the Digium D40, but did not find any place to enable the RPID, I do not know if they are enabled by default.

    Any advise?
    Regards Bilal

  • Remove the “allowrpid=yes” as this in incorrect.

    In sip.conf for the extensions in question you’ll need to set:

    trustrpid=yes sendrpid=pai

    You want to use the PAI (P-Asserted Identity) method and not RPID, as the PAI method is supported by the Digium phones, and also Polycom or SNOM phones.

    Requirements for that feature is that you need Asterisk 1.8 or greater
    (which it appears you have) and you need to make sure a “callerid= Blah
    <1234>” is set for those extensions.
