According to all cisco documentation and books the outgoing POTS dial peer of a Cisco gateway should strip the digits which match the digits specified in the ‘destination pattern’ (e.g outbound POTS destination pattern of ’49.%’ should strip the 49 and just leave the rest of the digits).This is the default behaviour according to cisco (digit strip = 1 in the dial peer). Only it doesn’t do it. The egress gateway dials the whole number including the 49.
Anyone know why and how to fix? We are using DID on the inbound POTS dial peer.
Thanks for the reply. You could also use number translation on the outgoing POTS dial peer. But it would be nice to know why it doesn’t work as documented, as we have the feeling we must be doing something wrong.
