SETUP: Asterisk@Home 0.8 install (Asterisk 1.0.7, AMP v1.10.007, plus misc) new RHEL3 certified Dell Poweredge server, new Cisco 7960G’s, new TDM400P w/4fxo’s, four SBC Centrex lines config’d for direct dial (no ‘9’ etc.).
ISSUE: Outbound dialing to PSTN is intermittently erratic. That is, I dial a local or long distance number and sometimes it connects to the correct number and other times it calls the wrong number. Some 877 numbers return the message “You must dial a 1 to…” message consistently even though there is a 1. However an analog handset connected to the PSTN line directly dials all #'s perfectly.
DEBUG: Asterisk log shows phone number being correctly sent from Cisco SIP phone to Asterisk, and the correct number being submitted to Dial.
Help? Any ideas? Our inbound is great, however outbound looking not so good.
