Re: why we use direct in ward dial command

Hi,

Without it, the router gives a dialtone to the caller, this is called two stage dialing and is usually not wanted.

With it, the router extract the called number and give the call to the final destination, that is called one stage dialing.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
