I have a strange problem.
I’m using the same dialplan to call 1800-number:

;second “7” audiocodes strips
exten => _71800XXXXXXX,1,Dial(SIP/7${EXTEN:1}@pstn-5665,60,tr)

When I call this number (through pstn-5665) 18005000347 the phone always rings busy.
When I call any other 1800-number the calls goes through.

When I call the same phone number 18005000347 through a different line the calls goes through every time.

Here is call (busy) trace to that 18005000347 with sip debug ON:

Can anybody decipher why I’m getting busy signal to that particular 1800-number but not others?

  • It took 36 seconds for that number to answer when I called it and it looks like the call hung up after 32000 ms when you dialed via asterisk.

  • Solved,
    It seems to me the vendor is blocking the 1800 number in Western Canada.
    Our second line I’m not sure where it is terminated: Toronto or USA or it could be they are blocking the 1800 line to home users and not for business lines.
