  Configuring ISDN Caller ID Callback
Caller ID screening requires a local switch that is capable of delivering the caller ID to the router or access server.
ISDN caller ID callback allows the initial incoming call from the client to the server to be rejected on the basis of the caller ID message contained in the ISDN setup message, and it allows a callback to be initiated to the calling destination.
ISDN caller ID callback allows great flexibility for you to define which calls to accept, which to deny, and which calls to reject initially but for which the router should initiate callback.
