Re: Calling an IP Phone from router CLI

if you are using h.323 gateway, the command is..

csim start X.X.X.X where x.x.x.x =DN you want to call

NB: this is used from the privilege mode

You cant use this with MGCP..

Re: Calling an IP Phone from router CLI

Hi thatnks for your response. I use a 1760 h.323 gateway. In the priveledge mode, the command "csim start" is not there and when I do a question mark at the priviledge mode, I dont see the option "csim start".

I tried it but got the output below:

"

Router#csim start 1003

csim: called number = 1003, loop count = 1 ping count = 0

csim err:csim_do_test Error peer not found

Router#

Re: Calling an IP Phone from router CLI

what that means is that you do not have a voip dial-peer that is responsible for routing the called number..

you need to have a voip dial-peer that will route the call...

Hi Peter,

Hope all is well :)It must be entered this way;

csim start

Hope this helps!

Re: Calling an IP Phone from router CLI

I want to add that this should NOT be used in any sort of formal testing. csim start does not make a proper RTP stream and therefore negotiations of certain protocols will throw errors that aren't real, seeming like links and connections aren't working, when they actually are! (i.e. try csim start over a QSIG T1 and watch it fails with random error's! )

Cheers,

Chad
