Can you initiate a test outbound call from the IP2IP Gateway router terminating a SIP trunk?

I just need to initiate a call outbound onto the SIP trunk, it doesn't matter if the other end answers.

We have a failover scenario and I need to initiate a call from one site, then the other for testing prior to having this in our production.

I would like to initiate it from the router.

You can use the command "csim start ". This is a hidden command in IOS.

Hope this helps.

You may find csim start to work, but generally it doesn't work for IP trunks. It's an older command that assumes you have a analog connection.

Best way is to configure it for CME and register a phone to it. But if you don't have a phone, you're kind of out of luck.

I do a lot of voice troubleshooting, and I can count the number of times csim start has been helpful on one hand.

Good tip, Nick. I do normally use csim start to test analog connections and it works great. I assumed it would work on IP connections as well.
