|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.

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.
