and then I have called my softphone from my voxalot account by accessing SIP broker Germany PSTN number 089121409114. and gave *031XXXXXX, now I get engage tone and the call didnt get forwarded to 0049394495083

If I remove the call forwarding option then I am able to receive the call on Softphone. I did not understand where I went wrong. Can anybody guide me how to solve the problem and forward the calls successfully.

Thanks in advance.
As a quick debugging aid, I would suggest to change the CID pattern to [_.] that is forward all calls. This verifies that Forwarding is functional.

After that, check what is the CID pattern transmitted to the Voxalot account via the SIP Broker number.
It may not be the full international number, or it may have + instead of 00 at the front.

I have seen the numbers come through as 00 or + at the front, or just with country code or missing country code and only local number.
My mobile strips the last 2 digits for some strange reason.

So you may want to match only the middle portion of the number to guarantee a hit.
So for example, you could set the CID pattern to match in the Call Forwarding rule to .3944950.

Note also that if the Voxalot account is not logged on by your Softphone (ie. no valid IP address available to Voxalot to pass on to Voipcheap), then Voipcheap may refuse to set up the call and it results in a busy signal.
