Just installed the AsteriskNow 1.7.0 32 bit ISO image.
Managed after some reading to install GNOME. (Not sure if I need it?)

After logging in via browser to Freepbx I was able to setup 2 SIP phones.
I have some old code (1.2 ?)I need to convert to this new version.

This is a part from extensions.conf
; Dialplan

ignorepat => 9
include => default
include => plan1
include => plan2


include => plan2

exten => 100,1,Dial(SIP/100)
exten => 100,2,Hangup

exten => 200,1,Dial(SIP/200)
exten => 200,2,Hangup

exten => 111,1,SetCIDName(phoneline aa)
exten => 111,2,Dial(SIP/100)
exten => 111,3,Hangup

exten => 151,1,SetCIDName(phoneline bb)
exten => 151,2,Dial(SIP/100)
exten => 151,3,Hangup

SetCIDName is important in this example.
How can I do this in AsteriskNow 1.7 ?
where can I enter this?

As you understand totally new in this, any help highly apressiated.

I think you only need to change SetCIDName. to do so use following
Set(CALLERID(name)=phoneline bb)

SetCIDName has been deprecated as of Asterisk v1.2. FYI, AsteriskNOW 1.7 and Asterisk 1.x are different versions.  AsteriskNow is probably using Asterisk 1.4 or 1.6.
