I have an odd issue in which my analogue phones at the remote site can dial across the WAN to a voice router facing the PSTN and then out to the PSTN.

The issue is with the EPHONES- the ephones can dial phone to phone at the remote site but cannot dial to the PSTN.  

The same dial peers should work for both phone types should they not?

The ephones are visible on the network and are registering.

>my analogue phones at the remote site
What are these analog phones connected to, specifically? Please profide detailed answer such as:
Cisco 2800 series ISR router, using FXS ports, VG224, etc..
Also need to know control type of the gateway. SCCP, H.323, MGCP?
What is your CallManager? Express, Business Edition, full Call Manager? What version?
What is your PSTN gateway? ISR router to PRI? Other? How is this gateway controlled? H.323, MGCP?
Basically just need a lot more detail of how you are setup

So, the analog phones work, but the IP phones do not? Depending on answers to above, we can help zoom in on the problem.
