I realize it’s unreachable now, but, when it shows as reachable, how do I use sipsak to call a number using this “trunking” provider?

(Yes, I know that trunking is just a construct.)

Ask your provider if there is an special prefix to add , or the required dial pattern to use.

can you explain a bit about how the dial plan fits in to establishing the connection?

Yes, I don’t really understand:

I’ve read that chapter before, will again, and will try to come back with a better, more exact question.
