Dial peer question

Colin Higgins

I have a dial-peer and translation rule configured on one of my voice gateways that I am confused about.

dial-peer voice 108 voip

description To pla-2k3-ipfx-01

translation-profile outgoing fax

preference 2

destination-pattern XXXXXXXX[3-4][0-5]

progress_ind setup enable 3

voice-class codec 2

voice-class h323 2

session target ipv4:

fax protocol t38 ls-redundancy 0 hs-redundancy 0 fallback none

This dial peer will accept calls to destination pattern number and forward them to our RightFax server at That much is clear.

However, the

translation-profile outgoing fax

is where I am confused.

there is a translation rule/profile 1 with a bunch of translations in it, but what is this command really doing?

Does this mean any number dialing out from is translated when making a call to the PSTN? (we have a PRI connected to the PSTN).

Voice translation profile and rules indicatet the numbers are changed according to certain rules. You can search about that.


Hy Colin

Can you post the traslation rules?



Usually translation done in IOS gateway as per the following:

1. Create translation rule

2. Create translation profile & associate with this rule

3. Apply the translation profile to voice port or dial-peer

In your case, you should see translation profile named FAX which is linked to a translation rule (match for called or calling number depends on the party need translation)

Hope this could help.

Hi Colin,

Please refer to the doc

In a nutshell, the profiles contains a set of rules which govern how a number will be manipulated based on a set of regular expressions.

Rules work like

/match pattern/ /replace pattern/

a group of rules  are assigned a profile. Paste the profile and associated rules here and we can try to help you.
