[Freeswitch-users] Set From User in SIP request

I tried your suggestions and variants on them without much luck.

I can set the user name on the B leg no problem butI can't set the user
number. However the non-standard header


does contain my requested user number so I know that the requested user
number is being passed to the B leg. I also checked the logs and saw the


Are being set and exported.

The relevant stanza from my dial-plan is

  <extension name="AU_national">
    <condition field="${toll_allow}" expression="domestic"/>
    <condition field="destination_number" expression="^(0[23478]\d{8})$">
      <action application="set"
      <action application="set"
      <action application="set"
      <action application="bridge"

(I tried with export instead of set but it made no difference)

Is there any other parameters or settings I could use to force the
default from-user to my variable one?
