Unanswered Question

I'm confused why are the dial-peers showing that the peer would be adding 911 (prefix on top of the already dialed digits. In effect output would be 911911 Also in step 4 how would that peer handle in and outbound calls when its a pots peer.

I have this problem too.

Hi David,

1. The default behavior of a POTS dial-peer is to strip the digits that were explicitly matched by the destination-pattern statement. One has to therefore make sure the digits are sent out by using the prefix statement. Alternatively, use the forward-digits command or change the default behavior using the no digit-strip command.

2. Pots dial-peer is the correct type of dial-peer to handle calls coming in through or going out of a voice port on the gateway. Voip dial-peers handle calls coming in from or being sent out to other network destinations.

Does this answer your questions?

Regards,

Michael.

Yes and thanks. Would you be able to point me to the location in the 3rd edition book where that POTS default dial-peer info can be found ?

I was in the middle of studying the CVOICE book second edition only to find out that the test was expiring. The 3rd edition seems a bit abstract meaning many of the building chapters in edition 2 have been removed with the 3rd edition jumping around more, less chapter building. I promise I wont ask more than the above!
