I have a remote office that would like to add faxing. They have an FXS card, and I would like their outbound calls to go out another office in the region. I can get the inbound faxing to work, but the outbound faxing is not working. Any suggestions on how to configure the dial peers on this. So it would be FXS-->another gateway that has a PRI-->PSTN, I would assume that I need an outbound voip dialpeer to point to the gateway with the PRI, correct? Will this even work?
This should work. Make sure you have the following:
1. Outgoing dial-peer for the correct destination-pattern pointing to the VGY that you want calls to go out on. Make sure that the protocol you use for communication between the two gateways is the same.
2. Atleast one inbound dial-peer with the incoming called number. statement on the PRI VGY. This can be modified as needed.
3. If running version 15.x or higher, make sure that the IP address of the remote gateway that has the FXS is in the trust list. If you have a dial-peer on the PRI gateway pointing to the FXS gateway, then this is not required.
Thanks for the reply. Not sure why I cannot get my head around this. When the user calls from the remote office FXS port, they get a fast busy. I am sure that I am missing something in the dial-peers, here is what I have:
Remote Office FXS connection
dial-peer voice 514933 pots description *** Fax from ATL Main Office *** destination-pattern 514933 port 0/2/0
dial-peer voice 1 voip description *** Outbound Fax Calls via the ATL Office *** destination-pattern 9.T modem passthrough nse codec g711ulaw redundancy session target ipv4:10.38.12.1 dtmf-relay h245-alphanumeric codec g711ulaw fax rate disable no vad
PRI Gateway Office
dial-peer voice 514933 voip description *** Fax To SCN ATL Office *** destination-pattern 514933 modem passthrough nse codec g711ulaw redundancy session target ipv4:10.38.12.1 dtmf-relay h245-alphanumeric codec g711ulaw fax rate disable no vad
I thought that the VOIP dial-peer on the FXS router would send anything the user dials to the PRI gateway, but I know that I missing something on the PRI gateway to handle the leg from the FXS router, hence the busy signal. Any suggestions?!
