Description:I've noticed that whenever I transfer a call through a Local channel, the billsec is zero even though I know the billsec should be longer.
I need the Local channel because sometimes my dial plans make calls to multiple numbers, and I need to know which call was connected for billing purposes. Using Local channels means I can create multiple CDRs for a simple group of calls, and the one that's connected is listed as answered, but the billsec is zero.

Was advised to use /n when dialing to the local channel.
Seems to resolve the issue.
