H323 trunks


#1

Anybody know how to assign fixed H323 gateways in Asterisk. I don’t have a GateKeeper… :cry:


#2

What exactly are you trying to do? Without a gatekeeper it would be difficult to assign specific ‘stations’ to be terminated to Asterisk. Although depending on the number dialed from the H323 connection request, you could handle the requests as virtual trunks.

Something like:

[incoming_h323]
exten => 123456,1,Goto(locationA)
exten => 456789,1,Goto(locationB)

Not sure if this is what you are after.

I’m trying to connect to a Nortel BCM - this can define remote GWs ie no GK required.

Just wondered if Asterisk could do the same…

Could ‘locationA’ be an IP address/host name??

SIP functionality is weak on the BCM at the moment and there is no support at all for AIX

In the extension.conf you must declare the route in this way:

exten => _2XXX,1,Dial(H323/${EXTENS}@192.168.0.1)

in this way if you try to call extension 2599, asterisk will call extension 2599 trough h323 gw at address 192.168.0.1

This work if you are using OpenH323, otherwise if you are using ooh323 you must use the following:

exten => _2XXX,1,Dial(H323/${EXTENS}/192.168.0.1)

(pay attention, the only changed thing is the “@” and “/” before ip address)

I hope is usefull.

Best Regard
