    Here's the complete collection of recordings I grabbed of the Odessa 1AESS switch before the cutover. The recordings were made during late may, with the last batch (A-D recordings) made on June 2, 2017 -- days before the cutover. The most interesting recordings I found during the calls to the switch: 1AESS-A.wav - Highest quality recording/best example I have of what a normal call to the 1AESS intercept sounded like. Allows you to hear the background SIT-tone noise before recordings. 1AESS-D.wav - Highest quality recording/best example I have of what a normal call to the 1AESS supervision test sounded like. 1AESS-3.wav - Bizarre because the switch cut to busy after intercept, instead of cutting over to reorder like normal. 1AESS-11.wav - Bizarre because the call, without ring, goes to the 1AESS intercept recording for one cycle, then stops for 20 seconds, and returns the Hillsboro 4ESS '121-T!' recording. 1AESS-14.wav - Bizarre because the call, rings once, goes silent for 30 seconds, then returns the Hillsboro 4ESS '121-T!' recording. 1AESS-15.wav - Bizarre because the call, rings once, goes silent for 40 seconds, then returns a reorder. More descriptions on the other calls are available on the 1A_desc.txt file on the dropbox drive. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/xca3wwskn1mzwzt/AABJMpTS0XDL9NQQgiz4LVI4a?dl=0 Enjoy.

    There's another number to that; 3438. If you're hitting a route that gives you g.729 (sorta ruins that catchy song), it's not a bad idea to try both a few times. Interestingly, the transcoding seems to come on after the C5 chirps; those (and sometimes some Australian sounding ring) are always clear as day. So now when I found this - I actually think I found it with radio_phreak, but when I did, I was about as excited as you can expect. But something wasn't quite right. If you do a RESPORG lookup on 3438/7, it comes back as using the MCI/0222 network. If you call the number directly terminating to the Malaysian destination (you'll find it with a bit of searching) over MCI though, it's end to end SS7. After trying a bunch of carriers with no success, the theory we wound up with is that they were re-originating via a third party country; likely Australia, to shave a few cents off termination charges. Interestingly, when you hop on a conference on that access number, it'll allow you the option to contact customer service for the company, which is based out of Denver. The route you get is _definitely_ not C5. For whatever it's worth, there was another number until semi-recently; 3439 that routed a little differently. Usually it was more likely to get a transcoded route, or other weird things - one route had 450 hertz ringback before the call went offhook quite a lot . But anyway, for whatever it's worth, during Hurricane Sandy it gave you an error recording from a Santera OCX. If I remember right, the other numbers worked fine though. One thing I've noticed is during that song they play for hold music, sometimes it likes to disconnect you in weird ways. The hold music in question passes some notes a few times that definitely sound like 2400 hertz, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it (maybe we should pay attention to the supervision status), or if it's just an apathetic operator hanging up on you. Incidentally, when the call tears down with 2600, you'll hear this curious reorder tone from the international gateway that sorta fades in and out. Based on this, I wonder if it's a type 1 EWSD: https://pastebin.com/q1dvEcVw . So this isn't exactly C5, but a while ago, I found some Axtel DMS logs on Scribd. No, seriously. You can see from there they have quite a few R2 trunks provisioned for end users: 142785363-switch-a.pdf . We were playing with this on the bridge a few months ago - something I sorta want to get into again at some point; a few people seemed pretty excited about it. There's one particular number, +52-818-114-1500 (on the AX2P42 trunk group; labeled STA_CATARINA_CALL_CENTER_PBX_R2. If you look at page 224, you'll see the trunk group type configuration for this and many others; there's a bunch of R2 trunks with generic labels) that will send a backwards 4 in MFC (780 + 1140 hertz)to the switch - indicating a network error when it messes up. Which it occasionally does. Dunno how or if these can be seized, but it seemed worth mentioning. Speaking of which, I don't have the number for this; I had the bright idea of putting it on the speed dial for a calling card and then letting it expire, but Russia has some sort of strange signaling - perhaps another R2 variant floating about in their network. This particular call I remember being to Siberia: weirdmfs.flac . A lot of their switches use whatever this is. It enables them to send vacant number conditions and such over their signaling network. All I do here besides try and hit some DTMF is whistle 2600 twice; once to seize the trunk, and another time to make the switch get all angry. The tones you hear are the standard R1 frequency set, but obviously an R1 trunk never barks MFs back at you. EDIT: Crap, I forgot about the Cuba stuff. From what I understand, Havana if no other place has a reasonably modern network of Alcatel gear. As for the fixed GSM terminals, there's some older documents on Cuban telecom infrastructure lying around. All of them seem to point towards the Cuban fixed network being very over capacity. That could have something to do with that particular addition. As for Paraguay, radio_phreak mentioned to me a while back a particular set of numbers that would route to C5 trunks over some carriers. I believe it was +595-528-222-xxx. Back to the C5 stuff though, does anybody know where we can find a protocol spec document for it? That'll probably help us with some of the oddities we've found on some of these trunk groups. Another EDIT: http://www.itu.int/rec/T-REC-Q.140-Q.180/en Holy shit, another EDIT: http://www.binrev.com/forums/index.php?/topic/47028-portugal/#comment-364799 portugal_c5.flac One (hopefully) last thing - for anybody looking for international credit, I've found http://www.call2.com to be pretty good for the most part. Most of their routes look to be resold MCI, the rates are reasonable, and it tends to be decent quality. It is a callback service though, so it can be a little clunky for a large number of calls like in a scan. DMS-10 loops can be a good way to make this a little less painful. I feel kinda gross giving out a plug like that, but given the relative obscurity of the service and the content of the thread, it seems appropriate.

    0800 890 595 is now a (quite rare) example of the equipment engaged tone. I haven't done much looking for interesting switching/signalling since the early 2000s. It's got more difficult now because most people and businesses in poor countries have jumped straight to GSM (+successors). Back then, it would (as radio_phreak notes) be much more productive to look in the provincial towns and cities of poor countries than in their main cities. My preferred method was to look online for hotels or businesses in those backwater areas, ideally finding their fax numbers, and call those. Much prefer bothering a fax machine than disturbing a person. Now-a-days you need to do this armed with the country's dialling plan (wikipedia usually has these) - and most of the numbers you find will be mobiles. Re Cuba, I can't reach the supposed second dialtone for the US base via +53 99. The state telco is marketing the "fija alternativa" service - ie a GSM-based fixed service - suggesting aged and interesting POTS equipment exists. Calling from here, it's evident that their international gateway is something not outrageously ancient, because it promptly returns an appropriate SS7 code for incorrect prefixes - eg +53 41 000000 returns the usual SIT+"the number you have dialled has not been recognised" from my local exchange. +53 xx 300000 returns a Cuban intercept - in Spanish then English - after about 5 seconds of delay, where XX is any of the 2-digit areacodes listed at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telephone_numbers_in_Cuba. Sadly no signalling sounds are evident during the delays - I think I've tried all of them. I had a quick look for hotels in Panama and all the phone numbers I found were +507 6xxx xxxxx - ie mobiles. However, again, I'm hopeful that downstream of the international gateway is something elderly and interesting. +507 900 0000 sometimes gives an intercept - Spanish only - mentioning C&W Panama, again with a significant post-dial delay. +507 800 0000 gives my local telco's equipment engaged tone. +507 811 1111 was answered by a human +507 700 0000 is a different Spanish intercept, with a longer post-dial delay. +507 600 0000 or 500 0000 give my local telco's SIT+number not recognised intercept. +507 400 0000 is the same intercept-after-delay as 900 0000. +507 300 0000 is yet another Spanish intercept, with delay. +507 200 0000 has a very long delay then something times out any my local telco plays SIT+"sorry, there is a fault". +507 210 0000 has a long delay then the 900 0000 intercept +507 220 0000 rings, again after a delay, and is answered by some sort of automated service - in Spanish. No signalling sounds or evident, for me, in any of the above :-(

    My understanding is the switch portion of the packet switch is called a call agent (typically -CA0 or whatever if you're looking at a CLLI). A media gateway is just something that takes analog or TDM trunks/lines or whatever and interfaces them with the call agent. Sorta like a huge ATA. What differentiates a packet switch from a circuit switch (as far as I know) is that a packet switch internally uses packetized transport, while a circuit switch uses a time slot interchange to connect traffic. Though this isn't always black and white; sometimes media gateways have time slot interchanges. I guess if you want to be all lawyerly about it, that's technically not part of the switch. Then there's the term softswitch. As far as equipment vendors are concerned, I honestly think that's just a bullshit marketing term. A softswitch, as they put it, is a switch that's based entirely in software. A lot of packet switches will consolidate some components from the design of a circuit switch into software, but they're sold as custom, proprietary blades; there's a snowball's chance in hell you're running CS-2000 or Metaswitch software on a vanilla PC. There are things like Freeswitch and Asterisk that are actually softswitches, but the line between what is and isn't called one has been blurred by marketing weasels.

    In order to be a "real hacker" (whatever the fuck that means) you need to have more than knowledge of how computers work, you need to have the will to experiment, make mistakes, learn from them, try things and work them out, first and foremost. The rest will eventually fall into place on its own.

    I have an internship with a company that does work with VoIP, and I hear terms like "gateways" and all those VoIP terms a lot. Basically, a gateway is a router configured to connect to the VoIP world (at least in our case, we have a hosted VoIP system) whether that be a "softswitch" (basically what ThoughtPhreaker said, a bullshit marketing term to make people buy their product), a PRI, T1 line, or a POTS line. The analog equipment (like a POTS line) is connected using cards installed into the gateway, we use FXO cards to connect our POTS lines to the gateways. The remote buildings have their gateways pointed towards our call manager, from there we manage all of the Cisco VoIP phones. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, all of our equipment is Cisco. On another note, I find it funny how Cisco run EVERYTHING when it comes to IT! All of our phones are Cisco's, all of our cards are Cisco's, hell Cisco could easily be compared to Ma Bell back when they ruled the telephone system. Their VoIP phones are built well, but god forbid the back stands breaks on the back of it, they are a pain in the ass to take apart and put back together. I'm not kidding when I say it took me fucking 20 minutes to try to put the back on a Cisco 7940!

    I've seen a few, still as of May 2017. Saw one in former Commonwealth Tel. territory (now Frontier) in northeastern Pennsylvania (NPA 570). Sadly only a few of the phones still around are working, and those who are working are only sort of working (static, muffled sound, etc.). In other words, not maintained by the local techs - just left to pretty much rot in place. Full CO controlled, not a COCOT in any way. Up until about 2013 was still able to do intra-LATA long distance, but I think Verizon finally killed that off. Here's a pic of two from my last trip up to NE PA.

    Would anyone be surprised to find that there are still semi-postpay coin phones in use in the U.S.? I found one while driving home from viewing the eclipse on Monday. It's an AE fortress payphone, with a semi-postpay instruction card. Has a dial tone and can make calls. Long distance calls are barred (I assume you would make them via the operator), and I didn't have anyone local to call, so I wasn't 100% able to confirm the semi-postpay operation, but I'm pretty sure it was still set up that way. The phone is in a really neat phone booth that is actually built into a corner of the CO building in Hampton, NE. Ringback can be activated by dialing the phone's own number and hanging up. That's about the only interesting thing I found in the couple of minutes that I had available to play with it.

    I do not think it was a COCOT, since it rang on an incoming call. Every COCOT I've played with answered with a modem tone when I called it. I actually didn't have any coins with me (I wasn't planning on stopping to play with this phone, and I seldom have change with me anymore). I was able to attempt to place calls without depositing a coin, but everything I tried gave me a recording saying that long distance calls and calls to mobile phones were barred. I didn't really have anything local to try and call, and I only had a few minutes to mess with it anyway. From everything I tried, it appeared to be a real, ACTS payphone. If I make it out there again, I'll call it from my cell, drop a coin, and see if makes tones. Did you notice it's only 20 cents for a local call?

    Only AT&T operates them right now; they were a bunch of LECs that bought them for intra-LATA switching, but those were replaced with DMS-200s. My guess as to why those were replaced is there was limited expertise available to run them, and a lot of collective, expensive headscratching. For AT&T, it's a little different; they developed the 4ESS with Western Electric/Nokia/whatever from the ground up to be a good toll switch; feature-wise, the software gives it a leg up over the DMS family for that. I'm guessing less so for local operations considering AT&T-owned local carriers like Pacific Bell phased them out years ago, But to answer your question, well, maybe. The older 4ESSes are pretty damn old, but in the world of circuit switching, that doesn't mean a whole lot. All the hardware is on easily replaceable cards, so you can replace stuff as needed; it's not like PCI or anything. You can just disable a card, yank it out, and shove something else in it's place. The processors are redundant, so you can do this with them too. A switch that was installed thirty, forty years ago has probably had most of it's earlier cards replaced with updated versions at some point, so it's not like running a car that old. But the last 4ESS was installed in 1999. Assuming nothing is interchangeable with the 5ESS (it very well could be; you'll see design decisions like that sometimes), it's possible the manufacturer is trouble finding components for repairs and new cards. Though considering Nokia currently holds pretty much all knowledge about it, top to bottom, I'd find it hard to believe they couldn't just do a limited run of more parts if they were up against the wall. They have a good enough business relationship with AT&T that they'd definitely do this if it was a problem. Considering Nokia end of lifed the 4ESS, my guess is AT&T specifically made some decision to phase it out. As I said before, the current executive leadership at AT&T has gone through a pretty huge ideological change. They've decided the only way for the company to survive is to make a frantic rush towards IP telephony, a very significant change with how they were run before. They've tried replacing the 4ESS with all sorts of things over the last couple decades; 5ESSes, DMS-250s, even some sort of weird custom switch in the nineties. For whatever reason though, that never panned out. In line with "everything needs to be IP right now" thinking, this is probably the best answer they could come up with.

    From what I understand, Genband really, really doesn't like to do this, and will whine and drag their feet the whole way if you want to plug a C20 into old cards. As for the lifespan of the 5E/DMS/other TDM switches, the engineers running these things seem like they're ready to keep them in good condition for a long time, and big telcos freeze like deers in headlights whenever you ask them to invest money in anything. The real question is probably more regulatory than anything else; will the current crop of regulatory actors tell the local exchange carriers that they can walk away from their customers? And more importantly, will they be able to make that stick? I try not to dabble in politics too much here, but local exchange service would be caught up in the same legal battle as regulated trunking for CLECs, wholesale providers and other types. The lawyers from public interest groups, carriers with a lot of CLEC interests, etcetera would more than likely pile on quite fast. And this would be in addition to the cases accumulating from the net neutrality stuff. I think the economic incentive for that was a lot stronger because even ten years ago, there were only ~40 1AESSes, including three that belonged to Verizon. And that particularly project took them six years to complete. Phasing out the 1As probably gave AT&T legroom to stop paying Nokia for 1AESS support, let go of their specialized 1A staff (which is relative, I guess; I understand very few actually knew how they worked), and gave them the flexibility to not have to keep special practices ready for non-digital offices. Considering the much more readily available amount of knowledge, relative similarities between packet and digital circuit switches and sheer number of switches, it'd probably be of pretty limited financial - and certainly service benefits to start phasing circuit switched end offices out. If you want to save money on running a central office, there's probably much better ways to invest, like in solar power to offset the cost of powering everyone's phone line.

    I've tried calling 10-10-XXX numbers over VoIP providers, and I haven't had any success. Is there a reason why 10-10-XXX numbers don't work over VoIP? Do they only work with POTS lines, or is there a way to call those numbers using VoIP? I'm curious to know, it's something I haven't put time into researching because I haven't had that time for a while now.

There's no obvious mechanism in Regedit for reading registry data in ASCII. My efforts on Google led me to a few rather old utilities that don't seem to work as advertised.

    Haha! As a customer, I look at Comcasts profits, and see that they are operating at less than 30% net profits, I say it's an upgrade needed for operations. Kind of like McDonalds whining that they don't have enough cows to keep up with people ordering Big Mac's. More customers eating more cows, means new farms to raise cattle. Not cry because paying customers are eating all your food. EDIT: don't you think spending billions reinventing in company stock instead of upgrading their network to handle Netflix "demand", shows they are putting assurances in a lot of future profit growth without upgrading to meet consumer demand?

    Why not make it responsive? It generally leads to better code structure and easier to achieve HTML compliant code as well as the benefit of it being responsive which would totally solve your mobile version issue. Also have a look at ImageOptim for reducing filesize of your images.

    Your image files are way too big, that's why they're taking so long to load. Instead of loading the full image and then having the browser re-size them, you should edit the images ahead of time to be the size you need... that will cut way down on the bandwidth, especially for image-intense pages. I also think the background image is a bit busy/distracting, but that may be more of just a personal preference.

    http://schoolisland.com/review/login.asp I guess it's so teachers can give their students online take-home tests. A friend of mine says it's tremedously easy to hack if you know what you're doing (which I don't). I figured that there might be people here who would find some fun stuff on there.

    There's a food court at the Riviera that's quiet. That might work. Just throwing it out there.

    Yes, it is inside the mall. It probably isn't ice cold, but it is air conditioned. Things are not looking good for getting a room for larger presentations (I will have my laptop that we can huddle around though, so I will do at least one short one even if I have to do it multiple times at different tables so that everyone can see).

    Its theft. All they can legally do is ask you to hand it over, and if you do then you give up your rights to not have it searched as well. Refuse, and answer any question they ask you with another question. There was a ACLU Video posted a while back, watch that for more tips.

    Because it is a common occurance in this forum in particular, I thought that I would post a clarification for anyone who may post here that INTENT is a very important part of your post. Intent is a legal term that shows what your goal is and is similar to a confession (in advance) to what you are trying to accomplish. I think an example may clarify... BAD QUESTION: GOOD QUESTION: The reason why these posts are different is the intent of the posts. The first example is a request for assistance in doing something illegal. This is not (necessarily) a statement towards the MORALITY of this action, but more to the LEGALITY of asking here in these forums. By stating your intent, that makes me liable for any actions that may result from the responses posted here. It can be claimed that I not only allowed, but encouraged it by allowing the thread to exist and allow responses to it. This is one of the reasons that we have certain rules. The second post is better because it does not state any intended purpose. It is a simple question and we do not know what your intent it. I trust that anyone posting like this is doing it for reasons of their own and are probably testing out the security on their own box that they control. I give all users the benefit of the doubt. But if you post something that explicitly states some intent, then the moderating team is forced to take action. I also remind our users to LET THE MODERATORS HANDLE THESE. Do not quote the rules at people because ultimately only the moderators are trained (and yes, they do get training) to be able to intepret this. Hacking is about exploring. And breaking/hacking wordpress (or anything else) is a valid topic and very much encouraged for discussion. You just have to be doing it for the right reasons. If you are doing it on your box (or assumed to be doing it on your box) then this is good, healthy curiosity and an educational pursuit. This is great and we welcome that pursuit. All I am saying is "THINK BEFORE YOU POST". Thank you.

    umm I think people understood me wrong, I'm sorry again if I gave the wrong question, like I already said I want to learn more stuff, and my main goal isn't about cracking websites,systems and stuff, I just want to learn hacking in general. And I don't have any problems with my gf, (i got her password for myspace) and I'm sure I wouldn't do anything stupid like that just to check if she is cheating on me. Just Note that I'm not cracker, I want to learn hacking.(Definition is here:http://searchsecurity.techtarget.com/sDefinition/0,,sid14_gci212220,00.html)

    Didn't we do the food thing last year at like 8? Either way I think having some presentations or whatever from BinRev members would be kinda cool. If I feel up to it, I did a presentation at Chicago 2600 meeting a few months ago that everyone seemed to like that I could do. As for afternoon meet, I have a few things I want to goto but if you get a room or something I'll drop in.

    Truecrypt is really fast. The files will be decrypted in a matter of seconds. You're correct. I know because I've used truecrypt btw, so I have some experience with it. I was thinking of mentioning truecrypt myself.

    any ideas for cheapest motor/transmission? preferebly electronic motor target weight is hopefully 50-75lb(hopefully under 75) edit: size probably around a starwars astrodroid at the biggest cheap/overbuilt also need transmission, drive train to and including the wheels preferably around human walking speed min around jogging max speed or so should be fine isnt a race car probably like 1/10-1/3hp 100-300w ideally 12v dc, secondary choice 24v dccurrently forerunner is, 30$ razor electric scooter replacement motor, and back wheel including the gear and the shaft 18$ and would do 2 sets to do the whole tank steering dual drivetrain so can turn in place. usually the weight limits for those things are like 125-180lbs or something like that, which doubled is way more than required. with 2 chains maybe 115$, but then only thing else i would need is a big caster wheel or two, and the chassis. obviously not something you get from a local hardware store, dont really care what the motor/whatever is from
