Hi all,

I have setup a Elastix with Digium T1 card installed. However I do not have the T1 cable from carrier yet. I want to simulate some call as it is from outside world, how could I do that? Is that need to have the LOCAL/ in the dial plan?

Actually I have setup some time group and IVR and incoming route in Elastix, however, when I dial the corresponding extension, its not working, so I want to make some test call as it is from the outside world.

Thanks.

If you have two T1's yes you can do a cross-over connection between the two, but I suspect that right now you won't be a able to do that, use a VOIP DID for testing. If your really need to you can set up a voip trunk on 127.0.0.1 for "zero cost" inbound/outbound tests on a "pseudo" trunk, that however will take more than a little RTFM'ing. LOCAL/xxx will unlikely synthesize fully what you need to test as the context won't reflect the tentative "real world" to which you aspire.

Hi Dicko,

So is that mean I setup a SIP trunk with host=127.0.0.1, and then config the outbound route with my testing extension in the dial plan, using that SIP trunk?

Thanks.

Pretty well,

127.0.0.1 is the "loop-back" adapter, just think of a trunk that goes out the box, and in effect another one that comes back into the box, it really isn't a very useful construct in the real world, but should work for your testing.
