Wow, that was fast. Thanks for your reply!!!

So if I were to do:

Action: login
Username: xxxx
Secret: xxxx
Events: off

Action: Originate
Channel: SIP/trunk
Context: context-for-second-call
Exten: secondCall
Priority: 1
Callerid: CallerID
Timeout: 30

I could connect the 2 calls?

It's my first time using Originate, so be patient with me :)
