Description:I am not sure if this is a bug or not, but looking at the code, it appears the the channel "Local" is always used by the followme app.  Should there be a way, or is there a way to tell followme.conf to use a different channel like "SIP/trunk_1"?

This is the error I get in the CLI when trying to use followme.conf to dial an outside number via my SIP trunk.

[Sep  5 00:09:30] NOTICE[30568]: chan_local.c:566 local_alloc: No such extension/context +19045551212@default creating local channel
[Sep  5 00:09:30] WARNING[30568]: app_followme.c:861 findmeexec: Unable to allocate a channel for Local/+19045551212@default cause: Unknown

The proper Channel needs to be SIP/trunk_1/+19045551212

app_followme was written to dial extensions in the dialplan, not devices directly. This is what is documented in the followme.conf sample file so no, there is not a way to directly call devices. If you wanted to add that capability feel free to create a patch and upload it... we will run it through the developer or decide on it at that time.
