Originate with prefix

Aug 25, 2014 at 1:27 PM
Hi,

Does anyone know how to originate a call and specify a prefix? I need to prefix the telephone number with 58 to hide the caller id on the telephone network. I'm using Asterisk version 1.4. If I just add the prefix to the front of the number I'm dialling in the 'exten' field my local phone rings but when I answer the call doesn't originate externally.

Thanks

Is this because your extensions.conf doesn't handle the prefixed number for your outbound route? I.e.

Can you paste in your Originate code, that way I can see how you're calling the number.
