I apologize in advance if I do not ask the question well, but, here goes. I have SIP extensions (Digium phones) on one Asterisk system. Once I have set sendrpid=pai in sip.conf, they see the called party name on their displays when calling eachother. Is there any method to extend this capability between Asterisk systems that are connected via IAX2? I do not see this information being passed when I look at the IAX2 debug. Is there something that could be set in the dialplan prior to making the call then retrieved on the other side? I have done extensive searches online, in the documentation, etc. I appreciate your help. Thank you.

  • It may depend on the asterisk version, but in theory you should just be able to set callerid(num) and callerid(name) before doing the IAX2 dial. You should always specify the Asterisk version you are using as features often change or are available/not available between different releases.

  • I am running Asterisk 1.8.11-cert9. I am setting the callerid(num) and callerid(name) which is working fine. The person receiving the call sees the name and number of the person calling them. I was wondering if there was any means to show the person initiating the call the name of the called party like it does now between sip extensions on the same Asterisk server. Thank you.

  • I do this now with a database look up against the destination extension, since we keep everybody’s name, extension and email address in a MySQL database for Fax2Email purposes, I use this source.

  • google function IAXVAR

    It allows you to pass any variable you like between 2 boxes.

    call the name of the called party like it does now between sip extensions on the same Asterisk server. Thank you.
