CME Dial Peer beginning with *

Hi All,

We have a site where there are now lots of in country external numbers beginning with either 3 or 4 digits which begin with a * (e.g *234 or *4567 etc..). Can this be incorporated into a dial peer beginning with * or do I need to implement this in a different way?

Re: CME Dial Peer beginning with *

Yes, you can have a destination-pattern which begins with an *, however, you cannot do two **.

For two ** you would need to use num-exp \*\* instead.

Examples for *8 on a voip DP, *9 on a POTS DP and finally a **3 which routes to 916125551212:

num-exp \*\*3 916125551212

CME Dial Peer beginning with *

Hi,

I have the following and doing some testing but the call is failing.

dial-peer voice 50 pots

corlist outgoing callnational

tone ringback alert-no-PI

description NumbersStartingWith*

destination-pattern 9*T

progress_ind progress enable 8

port 0/0/0:15

prefix *

If I dial 9*8080 (which is one of the in country numbers - 8080) I get message from the telecom provider saying incorrect number basically.
If I want to dial *8080 over my pots line should the above peer work or am I missing something?

Re: CME Dial Peer beginning with *

If you are sending the * to the telecom provider, then you need to know if that is acceptanble or not.

Also, what does the command show for you with that configuration:

show dialplan number 9*8080

if I do the following -

I'm assuming it woul be 9*8080 as they need to press 9 for outside line.

CCME-01#sho dialplan number 9*8080

Macro Exp.: 9*8080

No match, result=1

It doesn't seem to be matching my dial peer below.

My apologies, I typed an 8 by mistake when I meant to type a 9.  I have corrected it above.

Also, the T is what's messing you up.  You would have to do 9*8080 or even 9*....

Just change your destination-pattern to "9\*T" so the "*" will be treated as a digit rather than a wildcard.

Re: CME Dial Peer beginning with *

That doesn't work on 15.1(4)M1 Brian.  Do you have a version it does work on?

VoiceRouter(config-dial-peer)#destination-pattern 9\*8080

Incorrect format for E.164 Number

        regular expression must be of the form  ^[][^0-9,A-F#*.?+%()-]*T?(\$)?$

Hi Guys,

Yeah Brian that's not available on our CME Version.

Anthony - The reason I cannot do 9*.... is that there have hundreds of numbers beginning * but some have 3 digits, some have 4. Meaning if I use 9*.... it's always going to wait for the 4th digit. So I can't dial 3 digits using this way.

Also I can't have two dial peers, one with 9*... and 9*.... as the first one will always get matched (3 digits) meaning the site won't be able to dial the 4 digit numbers beginning with *

Must be a way to do this :-)

Re: CME Dial Peer beginning with *

Variable length dialplans are always problematic.

This works instead of the T for both 9* + 3 digits and 9* + 4 digits

destination-pattern 9*....?

The ? on the end is entered by pressing CTRL+v first, then ?, otherwise you'll just end up pulling up the help.

And the ? says "zero or one of the preceeding".  Meaning the last digit is optional.

EDIT: Re-read my command and I was one dot short.  Was 3, now it has 4.  Sorry for the confusion.

Hi Anthony,

Have amended the destination-pattern to 9*....? as advised and now when dialing a 4 digit number, e.g 9*8080

It is dropping the last digit so only *808 is being dialled. Means I can't dial 4 digits number..

Mystery continues...

CME Dial Peer beginning with *

I see you were using prefix *.  What if you chaged this to forward-digits 5?

Just to update on this guys. It turns out the telco provider at that site doesn't actually support the * short dial until they upgrade their own switches in their telecom network. I think the office thought it was standard across the whole PSTN there. So no matter what I done, it wouldn't have worked. The telco are looking to have their infrastructure upgraded in the next week or so. Once done, I will confirm the provided solutions are working or not.

Thanks All.

Hi Guys,

Reviving an old one here. The Telco updated their systems so numbers beginning with *xxx and *xxxx can be dialled from standard telephones across the PSTN.

I have added the following Dial Peer on our CME to test - but when dialling either 9*9000 or 9*9090 the calls do not connect.

Am I missing something here?
Just to recap on this - There are PSTN numbers now begnning with * symbol and I'm trying to be able to dial these from Cisco phones. We use 9 for outside line. I added dial peers for 2 specific *xxxx numbers to test but they do not work.

They DO work from a standard analogue phone.

A POTS dial-peer will digit strip by default. This means, starting from the left of the number, it will strip all explicitly typed characters from your destination pattern.

In your case, that's all digits.

While you are doing a prefix *, that will simply send an * to the telco, nothing else.

You can simply change your prefix to *9000 and prefix *9090 respectively and test.

Also, do a debug isdn q931 to see what digits you are sending.
