    There are some details here:-

    With regard to altering the dial plan for local and non local could you tell me what sort of prefix is used in your contry to differentiate between a local and national call?

    Accepted Solution

    In that case you would use something like the following in your dialplan :-

    exten => _1X., 1, dial(SIP/${EXTEN},30)
    exten => _0X., 1, dial(ZAP/1/${EXTEN},30)
    exten => _(2-9)X., 1, dial(ZAP/1/${EXTEN},30)

    However as you are using trixbox I suggest you post a question on their forums as they have their own way of performing the configuration rather than you editing the config files directly.

    That last line should be:
    exten => _[2-9]X., 1, dial(ZAP/1/${EXTEN},30)
