I've been working with translation rules in an effort to block toll fraud number such as 976.......
My "reject" rules aren't working so I stepped back to a simple proof of concept to affirm my understanding.
Goal, use a reject rule to prevent Ext 100 from dialing Ext 219.
However, even with the config below, I can still call Ext 219 from Ext 100, the call goes through and I can't understand why.
I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, but it's escaping me.
I'd appreciate any pointers.

Sorry, but the "reply" option is not functioning in my browser!!??
I opted for the business hours blocking option, as it was simple, and I needed a quick fix as we cutover the system this weekend giving me no time to test the alternatives, Thx!
Go to Solution.
If you are trying to block calls in CME, here is a much easier way:
after-hours block pattern 1 91900....... 7-24 after-hours block pattern 2 91976....... 7-24
Can you please test the rule with below command
# test voice translation-rule 2 219 (and check the output result)
translation-profile incoming test < this has to be outgoing> since you want to prevent extn 100 to dial 219.
