Hi all,

I am configuring a callmanager express 4.0 on a cisco 2821, from my configuration i have same dial-peer configured to reach to the pstn without clir, but i have also configured same dial-peer with clir restricted, i have user the caracter # to go to the clir dial-peer but the cme doesnot accespt the # caratcter. Is the # caracter especial for the callmanager. If i change the # to a * everithing works.

The # character is a terminating character by default. If the # character is entered while the router is waiting for additional digits, the # character is treated as a terminator and is not treated as part of the dial string or sent across the network.

If the # character is entered before the router begins waiting for additional digits then the # character is treated as a dialed digit.

To verify whether this happening, you can change the termination character by using the dial-peer terminator command in global config, try changing it to * and then change your destination pattern to begin with #.
