if you are using h.323 gateway, the command is..


csim start X.X.X.X where x.x.x.x =DN you want to call


NB: this is used from the privilege mode


You cant use this with MGCP..

Hi thatnks for your response. I use a 1760 h.323 gateway. In the priveledge mode, the command "csim start" is not there and when I do a question mark at the priviledge mode, I dont see the option "csim start".

I tried it but got the output below:


"

Router#csim start 1003

csim: called number = 1003, loop count = 1 ping count = 0


csim err:csim_do_test Error peer not found

Router#

what that means is that you do not have a voip dial-peer that is responsible for routing the called number..


you need to have a voip dial-peer that will route the call...

I want to add that this should NOT be used in any sort of formal testing. csim start does not make a proper RTP stream and therefore negotiations of certain protocols will throw errors that aren't real, seeming like links and connections aren't working, when they actually are! (i.e. try csim start over a QSIG T1 and watch it fails with random error's! )



Cheers,


Chad
