I have two questions:
- Is AsteriskNOW running smoothly on VMWare? I’m planning to run it on a Win XP box and this is the only option I have.
- Can I achieve the following (and how):
Incoming call is coming from a registered SIP client with extension 123 to number 088xx. A-number analysis is performed on the call and when the “123” pattern is matched the B-number is prefixed with 123#088xx and sent towards a GSM gate (which can analyze only B-numbers so it needs them to be prefixed to select the proper outgoing SIM card and strip the prefix before dialing) defined as a SIP trunk in Asterisk configuration. Now it comes to my mind that to enable SIP-to-SIP calls through Asterisk I’ll have to analyze both A- and B-numbers so that for example 123 dials 456 the call is not routed towards the GSM gate.
My VoIP skills got a bit rusty in the last few years but I guess you got the idea. My experience with Asterisk is 0 so far but if someone can provide a simple example this should be sufficient.
Thank you in advance,
