Hey guys I lurk here now and then but haven't asked for help here until now, my problem is this
I have an up and running Nortel MICS with one DTI card that's been working on Bell Canada's NI-2 service for 3-4 years - I have had no trouble with it and it's running fine
I'm trying to run some VoIP experiments on this switch just to learn (I'm lucky to have access and use two of their DID's). So I've added a second DTI card and have the ISDN side running. My big problem is how to I setup the MICS to allow calls from the second PRI (to my Cisco VoIP router) to go out through the first PRI over the PSTN. The link is working and as I expected when I dial digits and try and complete a call on the second PRI it just goes to prime once it times out, or to the matching target line of I put in the correct digits
Bell Canada/PSTN | -> MICS -> Cisco VoIP router
I need to complete calls through the MICS back to the PSTN
Second. What's the best way to forward the calls from the PSTN to the Cisco is it using routers , or do I need to do the target line/redirection thing
I have outgoing routes setup but is there anyway to define a route that get's matched and forwards between the two PRI's for incoming ??
I have a route now for outgoing calls, which has been working. When I place a call on the second PRI that would match the route it still get's treated as an incoming call. It seems this would be the moste elegent way. Is it possible ?
Please don't be afraid to overwhelm me with all the details you happen to be thinking about, in fact I prefer that. I'm not shy of details and I have lots of DCOM experience, I'm not a 'Installer' however I help out allot of small comanies in my area so I end up doing the installs for them because their isn't anybody here that has any hard core info about PRI's
The Cisco says the D channel is up and I can complete calls, so I assume I have the ISDN side at least half configured - even if I don't I can limp along and get that working myself ( I think) I need some clues for handling the outgoing calls
Thanks in advance, Adam
