19 Create an Outbound Route Set the Dial Pattern to match any dialed number string beginning with a “9”Put your IAX2 trunk in the Trunk Sequence list.Note: A dial pattern of “9|.” will strip off the 9 and pass the rest of the digits to the trunk.
20 Create an Inbound Route Allow inbound calls from any trunk to be routed to a specific destination.By not specifying a DID Number or Caller ID Number, any inbound call will match.
