How to use V4 as a gateway of V6

 How to set up VOIspeed 4 to be used as a gateway to VOIspeed 6:

With VOIspeed 6 you can use the hardware resources (e.g. ISDN cards, and any SIP Gateway) connected to an existing VOIspeed 4 phone server.  You can configure VOIspeed 4 gateway by following the steps below:VOIspeed 4:

VOIspeed 4:

  1. Create a new user in VOIspeed 4 entering name, extension and password
  2. Activate the following advanced properties for the same user: “183 Progress”, “DTMF Notification” and “Half Frame Size”.
  3. Stop the PBX
  4. Open the file confPBX.ini in the main installation folder. Within the section [ISDNSettings] (add the label if not already present) add:
  5.  ForceDtmfDecoding=1
  6.  Close the file and restart the service
  7.  Go to Configuration à Settings and include a new mapping to route calls from the ISDN number to the new extension (e.g. 01727848186:87431 provided 87431 was the new extension just created and 01727848186 was the ISDN number)


Assuming that VOIspeed 4 has been installed and the business number is 01727848186, see the steps below:


Create a new user with the following data in VOIspeed 4:

  •          Name: Voispeed6
  •          Extension: 87431
  •          Username: voispeed6
  •          Password: user87431
  •          Enable progress 183: enabled
  •          Enable Notification DTMF: Enabled
  •          Use Halved Frame: Enabled

In VOIspeed 4 go to Configuration –> System –> Numbering create the following mapping:
01727848186: 87431

Update the confPBX.ini file as explained above.
