Quick Dial Peer Question...

I am setting up a VOIP dial peer. I have 6 destination patterns that should all be exiting out the same interface.

Should I create 6 separate dial peers? , or,

Should I place 6 distinct "destination-pattern" statements in the same dial peer?

Thanks very much for your help everyone.

Re: Quick Dial Peer Question...

u can have only 1 destination-pattern. You will need 6 different dial-peers.

Thank you for your help and clarification MChandak. I will go ahead and do that.

Re: Quick Dial Peer Question...

If your destinations are related, you may be able to combine. If your destinations were 3100, 3200 and 3300, you could use "destination-pattern 3[123]00, for example.

Hope this helps. If so, please rate the post.

Re: Quick Dial Peer Question...

thanks bbuffin...actually they are all toll free numbers that are being passed through soe 800, 866, 888, etc. Would you suggest doing something like 8[068][068]...... or would that be a security issue as it opens up a wider # of phone numbers to be transferred across the ipl? thanks

Re: Quick Dial Peer Question...

You'll want to make the scope of the dial peer as narrow as possible, so if you only want toll free numbers using this path, then I would recommend using dial peers specific to these numbers. Using a pattern like 8[068][068]....... would allow a number such as 8061234567 to route using this dial peer which is probably undesirable.

Re: Quick Dial Peer Question...

Good point there Brandon, thanks. If I want to, say, permit all of the following:

8001......

8002......

8003......

8008......

would the following pattern be of use 800[1-38]...... ?

Thanks again

Re: Quick Dial Peer Question...

Yes, absolutely.

Re: Quick Dial Peer Question...

excellent, thanks very much.

Some of the DIDs are in a range, so it makes this much easier. However, some of them are just completely distinct phone numbers. In your experience, should I just inividually set up destination patterns for each number.

Thanks again

Re: Quick Dial Peer Question...

I would use the range where you can to cut down on administration and the size of your configuration. Dial peers do add to the size of your configuration and therefore, the amount of memory taken up on the router.
