I expect that you are talking about a definition file --

Hi PhoneBuff,

Thanks for your Reply. Im not talking about file as such.

When you configure a DN for example:

ePhone-DN 2011

You can add a Description, Label, and Name.

I'm wondering what the difference between them all is as they all seem to do the same?


    Don't do much Call manager, mainly Cisco hardware on Asterisk --
Label = this value displays in the upper right-hand corner of the phone display
Description = this value displays on the phone screen
Name = Used for Caller id / name display between handsets
