dest.pat 1[2,3,4]T , Help needed


When putting such dest pattern in voip dial-peer everything works perfectly. But when in pots, it doesnt(I cant debug as of high volume of traffic on it, so I dont know why it fails).

I am using 12.13XI7.

Here is my pots. do I need any additional configuration ?

dial-peer voice 1 pots

destination-pattern 1[2,3,4]T

port 0:1


Re: dest.pat 1[2,3,4]T , Help needed


i think the problem is, that the first 2 digit (in your example) will be stripped.

Try it with the "no digit-strip " command on the

pots dial-peer.

You probably do want to try the no digit strip to see if that is the issue and you can also change the pattern to 1[2-4]T. That is the same thing as listing out each individual digit. You can specify the range.

Hope this helps,

You see I want that digits were stripped... :)

so for example if I dial number 137777, then I want that 5300 sent to PSNT "7777" digits.

same to 127777, 147777.

Actually the problem is that the number that matches in the bracket will not be stripped. Only the 1 will be as the bracket is treated as a regular expression. So if you want the number that matches in the bracket to strip you are left with these choices:

If you know the nuber of digits that are coming in you can forward the number of trailing digits with the forward-digits command. say you are getting 6 digits 123456 and you want to send the last 4 you would use

forward-digits 4

If you don't know the number of digits you will receive then you would need to set up 4 dial-peers





as destination patterns

Thank you very much for an answer.

Coming from your answer I have another question...

I think I can use such command 1[2-4]....

So for example user dialed 121234 and I forward 4 digits(by using sugested command), and 5300 dialed 1234.

Now another user dialed 121234#, what will be forwared to the PSTN then ? 234# ?

why I am asking, someting I have some strange letters at the end of the number, or # or * signs.

yes 234# will be forwarded # and * are valid digits. Howvere be aware that the # is the default dial-peer terminator so if you want to use it as a digit you need to set dial peer terminator (in global config) to something else (A is usually good). I don't beleive however that # is passed on a PRI-NET5 line as it is interpreted by the gateway as a sending complete when doing overlap receiving.
