Fail a specific DDI, despite catch-all pattern

Answered Question
Oct 29th, 2008

I need to intentionally put a specific incoming DDI number "out of service" such that a caller from the PSTN hears a generic message from their carrier/exchange and believes the number is invalid.

Currently my H.323 gateway translates the called CLID to a potentially valid 4 digit extension number. I have a "catch-all" translation-rule which, if no specific match is found, will translate to the switchboard number. This has the affect of catching all calls to currently unassigned numbers.

Can I configure a specific called CLI to fail ? as my catch-all provision is working against me here.

I have this problem too.

Hi,

you can use call reject to achive this...Below is an example of how to ocnfigure call reject

To block a call based on calling number (ANI):

1. Create a voice translation rule and add the numbers you want to block.

BR1(config)#voice translation-rule 1

BR1(cfg-translation-rule)#rule 1 reject /3234441234/

BR1(cfg-translation-rule)#rule 2 reject /3234442345/

BR1(cfg-translation-rule)#rule 3 reject /5155556*/

2. Create a voice translation profile.

BR1(config)#voice translation-profile reject_ANI

BR1(cfg-translation-profile)#translate calling 1

3. Apply the translation profile to your inbound dial-peer.

dial-peer voice 1 pots

Incoming called-number .

direct-inward-dial

port 0/2/0:23

call-block translation-profile incoming reject_ANI

Thanks for this reply.

I am looking to "fail" the call based on the CALLED number, not the CALLING number. ie. ANY external party calling a PARTICULAR DDI terminating on this gateway should get "unreachable". Although I think this may still be possible using the method you describe. Is this still your recommendation ?

I will have a look into this option further and rate as appropriate.

Many Thanks for the quick response

Used this example on CALLED number, not CALLING number.

Thanks for your help.
