    we want to offer our web-users free phonecalls
    so they enter a phonenumber and the server
    makes the connection between the entered number and
    their own user-phonenumber

    on the api i can fire a call between internal extention and a external number

    the same but with 2 external numbers

    While there may be a way around it, I would think that for security reasons, given that 3CX really wasn't designed for this, you may be out of luck. As far as I'm aware (or can remember) an outside call is placed in one of 3 ways (all calls being linked to an extension number for billing purposes).

    Normal origination, forwarded to an outside number, and dialled out though the voicemail menu( again ,of an extension).

    So I think you'd have to have the calls appear to originate from an extension number.

    So, in theory - the "Web-Users" would each have an extension forwarded to a phone number... ?
    The API would connect their EXTENSION and the outside number...

    (just asking for my own clarity)
