freitasm: I'd dare say the "average punter" is just moving from POTS to VoIP and won't have multiple lines, etc. Geeks rule, and therefore can do and ask for things "average punters" can't and won't.


I tend to agree. VFX appears to be aimed squarely at the average punter / home user who wants to move to VoIP, without any setup or ongoing config headaches. IMHO they (Xnet) have done a superb job of this - it just works as you'd expect, with one or two VoIP lines.

They haven't left geeks out in the cold though - by offering the OpenVFX service you can set up VoIP however you wish - the gotcha is that you take responsibility for any setup/config errors that may cause your bill to increase (fair enough, I believe)!

If you have a requirement outside the standard VFX config, no problem, just go for OpenVFX - it's a bit more work to set up, but that's all part of the fun of customising everything to suit your exact requirements :-)

coffeebaron: This issue seems to crop up once in a while. Is it possible for WxC to look at this more globally across all FXO capable VFX devices and maybe add a dialing prefix to force PSTN dialing?
That way, any customer that uses these devices on PSTN as well can just dial a short code, followed by number and it will go out on PSTN line. No need for "special rules" for various numbers that you want to go out on PSTN.


That would be all very reasonable.  I would be very happy with that option, if it existed.

I've configured SPA devices with ** as a predigit(s) to force dialling via the FXO port. This is one of the few options that doesn't cause a clash with any other number ranges or feature codes.

I thinki it would be a great idea for WxC to enable this as a default in their dialplans for SPA devices with FXO ports.

Right now I am in Fiji giving my wife a well deserved holiday, I will take a look at this when I get back and see how it fits with my provisioning setups, but quite possible I could add this to the 3102 and wag310 setups
