    The outgoing trunk must be VoIP, using a provider that supports sending a number other than what is assigned to the line. In other words, they have to allow you to change the number.

    But which settings must I do in the trunk configuration? I just found in the configuration form the settings "international/national/local format.

    My understanding is that those are used for changing the display on your own, internal phones. What number is displayed now, when you forward a call to an outside line?

    Did you do a search on the forums, this has come up a number of times. You may want to read through this thread...
