     I don't know if CCA can do this, but it is a fairly simple CLI change.

ephone-dn 1

number 1111

trunk 2222

ephone 1

button 1:1

When ephone 1 goes off hook, it will dial, 2222.

Hope this helps.

Yes. Usually, the analog ephone-dns are the first few in the config. You should also have a corresponding ephone with "type anl". The "button 1:x" command under this ephone will tell you the ephone-dn number.

Hope this helps.

Hi Rodney,

CCA currently does not support this feature. I'm tracking CCA feature requests, and will add this to the list to be considered for one of the future releases.

Thank you,

Have you also considered using a PLAR in the FXS Voice Port?

The connection plar command under the fxs voice-port (show voice-port summ) can allow you to create a switched Voice over IP (VoIP) call without any digit dialing, this URL should be useful

Thank you
