If this number is within your system, then I believe the direction should be outgoing. From your email, it sounds like you dont want extension 2508 to call out.

SO I suggest to change your config to

call-block translation-profile outgoing call-block.

For things like this, it is rcommended to use COR-list..

use call-block with voip DP only. In that case, the translation rule does not need to contain reject, any match is sufficient.

For pots DP, simply use translation-profile and reject.

in my environment, i want to block the ip phone ( call manager express in voice gateway) to call out by dial-peer. But it can't work even the rule is /^.*/.

best regards.

Hi Fred,

Are you trying to prevent one DN from dialing out?

If so, you should apply a corlist to the ephone-dn:

ephone-dn 1

corlist incoming x

Then, on your voip dial peers:

dial-peer voice 1 voip

corlist outgoing y

You would need to add the full corlist configuration, but I think this is what you're looking for. I haven't played with call block on calling number, but there's a good chance it doesn't work on calling number.
