Unanswered Question
Jul 23rd, 2008

What additional prefix should I use for off-net calls. I have 1XXX like on-net calls. 9XX.1XXX like inter-site on-net calls, [2345780]XXXXX as city,intercity,etc. Can I use prefix like "*"?

What you will recomend for me?

I have this problem too.

Your dial-plan will depend on which country you are in...

Eg for US... you will have things like


9911 emergency calls

9[2-9]XXXXXX Local calls

91[2-9]XX[2-9]XXXXXX long distance calls


9011!# for International calls

For UK dial-plans


9999 emergency

90[1-8]XXXXXXXXX Land line calls

907XXXXXXXXX mobile

90[9]XXXXXXXXX premium rate calls


900!# International calls

Your tone is a bit rude! I have taking time to post all that and you respond like this!

This is a poor attitude! Dont keep this up!


Callmanager does not use the prefix * you can only use . X # or ! Sun, 07/27/2008 - 23:21

dude, ccm can use * as prefix, but I want to know, is it normal? because there are a lot of issued like SRST, where symbol * is not the normal character on the router dial-peer.

to answer your question, I only use * as the leading digit for my system numbers that stay local to CCM only. ie meet-me, call-park. There is issues with tons of products, such as Unity Mailboxes, SIP Proxy, Gatekeeper, H323 gateway... Avoid it and just use 9 or 8 like the rest of the world.
