We have written a softphone in VB.NET that connects to a Asterisk PBX.  In looking at the asterisk database, I see that there is a UNIQUEID for each call.  But SIP seems to use a CALLID field as the key value for calls.

Does anyone know of a way to convert a UNIQUEUID to a CALLID or visa versa?  Or is there a what to have the UNIQUEID passed in the SIP message?  Or CALLID stored in the Asterisk Database?

Thanks in advance
