Problems Dialing Out Over a PRI

This topic assumes you have a working PRI (Primary Rate Interface), but are only having problems dialing out. (I.E. Inbound is working, but outbound calls fail.)

What’s Needed

  • CTI32 Configuration Utility
    • You will use the utility to edit the CTI32.INI file
    • And also to launch TMonitor

Background of what you will be changing

In the CTI32.INI file there is a block called [ISDN] that has all the specific elements of an ISDN call block. When a call is made, CTI32 communicates the phone call to the phone carrier through a call block. This call block has all sorts of information on how to place the call. These parameters must be synchronized with your phone carrier in order for the call to work.

In the CTI32 Config utility under the Default node, there is a parameter called “DialMethod”. This specifies several built-in options for setting the call block. The options are as follows:

  • T1 – The default, works for most PRI lines
  • E1 – Works for most European PRI lines
  • AVAYA – to work with an AVAYA switch
  • SDN – works for AT&T networks requiring SDN
  • NI2 – Not used very often

If none of these options work, then you will have to trial and error the settings to make it work.

HOW TO

  • Press the “Edit CTI32.ini” button in the CTI32 Config Utility
  • Scroll down to the [ISDN] section of the file
  • LoadOptions=2 (This will load the ISDN settings before each phone call so you can change and test without having to re-start the service each time)
  • Save
  • Restart the CTI32 Engine Service
  • Change the settings and save
  • Try a test call using the “Test Dial” button in the TMonitor application

Here are some various settings to try:
