Hello All,

I am trying to dial out from my VOIP phone using my PSTN at home. I am able to route calls in to the VOIP phone with no problem after entering "connection plar 5003" Command. When I attempt to use the commands below I get a busy signal. I think my CME is not recognizing the dial plan I configured.

dial-peer voice 1 pots

destination-pattern [770]..[...]....

port 1/0/0

I have tried

destination-pattern 9[770]..[...]....


destination-pattern ..........

also what is the right command to dial long distance?

  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4
  • 5

A few things to note:

1) on a pots dial peer, any time the digit is explicitly matched, it is dropped.

so pattern 9....

would only send ....


pattern (9).... or [19]....

would both send 5 digits.

This is changed with:

forward-digits | all

no digit-strip

changing the destination pattern.


the [xxx] parameter is an OR operation. What your current destination pattern says is:

7 OR 7 OR 0 followed by two numbers, followed by ANY NUMBER or ANY NUMBER or ANY NUMBER followed by 4 more numbers.

You probably want something like this:


forward-digits 10

This will send 770 plus 7 digits. If you need to dial one, add a 1 in the pattern and forward-digits to 11.
