We have a Cisco CME configured for a site and I am wanting to implement a dial shortcut to quickly call a specific number.
Essentially I am wanting to dial *88 from a Cisco phone and have that translated to 1-800-123-4567 and have that ring out to that destination number. The site is configured to dial 9 for outbound calls but I do not want to have the callers dial 9 before the *88. (we have *88 configured in our main site with full CUCM and it works fine and we want to keep the same code out at this remote office with its stand alone phone system).
What I have done so far...
voice translation-rule 2
rule 6 /^.*88/ /18001234567/
After that, if I "test voice translation-rule 2 *88" it comes back with the following:
Matched with rule 6
Original number: *88 Translated number: 18001234567
Original number type: none Translated number type: none
Original number plan: none Translated number plan: none
Without doing anything else I got a fast busy when trying to dial the number so I assumed I wasn't getting an outside dial tone with that on its own.
Then I created a dial-peer for *88 hoping that would help...
dial-peer voice 35 pots
description **Work Alone**
translation-profile outgoing trnsprfOUTBOUND
progress_ind setup enable 3
Now I get a message indicating the call cannot be completed as dialed, which I am assuming is coming from the telco so I am assuming that now it is passing *88 out to the telco which is not what I want.
What am I missing with this?
