Extension notation in default ViciDial installation

Hello List,

A few days ago I installed ViciDial on a server, and while looking to
the default ‘extensions.conf’ file, I saw this line:

exten => _010*010*010*015*.,1,Dial(${TRUNKTESTast}/${EXTEN:16},55,oT)

Can someone point me out to the Asterisk documentation part where
explains how to use server IP’s as extension number?

I could not see it in the ATFOT2 book, and I would like to understand
better that part.

Note:
Or might it be a fully dependent setting of ViciDial?

In the installation documentation of VD says (just above the exten =>
… line mentioned previously):

; local server extens:
; BE SURE TO CHANGE THIS LINE FOR YOUR IP ADDRESS!

Regards,

  • This is a ViciDial feature and it depends on ViciDial being configured
    properly. As of the current release version 2.2.1, the dialplan will
    automatically configure for however many servers you have in your cluster,
    including the dial-by-ip extensions you mention. An associated iax.conf
    registration is also done from each server in your cluster to every other
    server in your cluster, which allows this to work.

  • This is a ViciDial feature, not something that Asterisk does by default. It would not be difficult to replicate without ViciDial if you set up IAX trunks to all of your Asterisk servers(whihc ViciDial does automatically).
