Good morning, i've some  problem to understand   a particular  dial peer configuration on  voice gateway:

 incoming called-number ^AAAA$


Each one can explain me how the command " incoming called-number ^AAAA$" works?

This command is used to select the called-number that will match this dial-peer on the inbound call leg.  The ^ means "begins with" and the $ means "ends with".  This statement is to match the called-number "AAAA" exactly.  If a call matches this called-number, this would be used as the inbound dial-peer.

Yes I say this but I dont understand which number  could be AAAA.....


There should be PRI port

There should be PRI port connecting this gateway to other equipment like PBX or Provider end and from that equipment you would be receiving the number as "AAAA"
