    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.

    I was pretty active back in 2009/2010 with exploration and scanning, this is to the best of my recollection In the UK there was some widely shared numbers that in the 90s were C5 directs as well as being free to call (0800 numbers), by 2009-2010 time only two remained: Bahamas on 0800 890 135 (it had some kind of filter on and you wasn't able to seize at any point during the call) and Paraguay on 0800 890 595, outside of the capital city sometimes numbers in Paraguay would travel over C5 routes too. In addition to this pre-earthquake calls to certain parts of Haiti would travel over C5 lines when you called numbers outside of Port-au-Prince, post earthquake in 2011 they for obvious reasons no longer worked. As far as numbers I'd have to dig through my old notes which are put away goodness knows where. Cuba was a place that I was planning on scanning before I became too busy with life and dropped out, I believe they have (had?) a mixture of the latest Chinese stuff in Havana and some of the older Soviet era crossbar stuff.

    Yeah, there are USB isolators you can get from industrial suppliers that will protect your machine, too (used to prevent a catastrophic failure on a machine tool from blowing up the control system). I would probably just grab the cheapest throwaway laptop in the parts heap/thrift store/whatever and use it, if I were going to check these out. Another thing to look at is local geocaches. I've found a few on hikes that had USB drives in them.

    This might be the last time I get to hear a US West TOPS switch hassling me for money, so I thought I might record it. I didn't have a pickup coil with me at the time - still don't actually, I should probably find my way to one. But anyway, sorry about the automatic gain control. Next time I do this, I'm going to use something a little cleaner. All I had at the time was my Dialogic box, though. In case you were wondering, this switch is indeed the sort of thing you can redbox, but it typically doesn't ask you for money retroactively. It's doing this (it actually never cut me off if you're wondering; I sat there for like twenty minutes. The tops_2.wav stuff is the last thing it said) because Qwest doesn't use TOPS for operator services anymore. It's not programmed to automatically cut you off and there's no person it can call to intervene, so, well, it just lets the call go on forever. And probably raised an alarm on the console. I've never heard it myself, but the TOPS manual says it can actually get pretty aggressive; it'll call you back to try and get you to pay if you let it. I was really disappointed when it didn't. If you listen to the way it says "past", you can hear this subtle looping sound on the end of the T syllable. This is a characteristic thing the Nortel EDRAM card does - the closest we'll get to proof here that the tandem is a DMS. Funny enough, we actually do have the original files the switch is playing back; it's some form of 32k ADPCM. It's all in some sort of strange container format that nobody could ever figure out, though. If you'd like to try your luck with it though, this is the archive with all the stock EDRAM stuff. eacts0ae.bin44 has all the ACTS stuff in it: http://www71.zippyshare.com/v/1XzPMAeZ/file.html . I'll post a manual for the card at some point. The .bin44 extension implies that it's binary as per usual, but the 44 after indicates the logical record length of the file is, well, 44 bytes. tops_1.wav tops_2.wav

    Another bit of weirdness, I had a RCA "home theatre" VCR in the mid-late 90s that still had a full 82-channel broadcast tuner. You could only access the lower 68 (channels 2-69) via the channel up-down keys and it would only blind-scan that range, yet you could manually enter 70 through 83 and it would happily tune them. I suppose this is because it also had a 139-channel cable TV tuner (although advertised as only 125 channels!) since the cable ultra- and jumbo bands (channels 65-139) are mapped to UHF channels 14-83. RCA (by that time a brand of Thomson (a.k.a. Technicolor), no thanks to the CED fiasco) was known for doing some weird shit with tuners back then anyways. For example most of their TV sets, especially the Proscan line, mapped the line inputs to pseudo-channels in the upper 90s.

    Yes and no, AMPS was narrowband (+-30 kHz (15 kHz deviation)) FM when TV audio was wideband FM (~200 kHz IIRC) (mono baseband was around 20 kHz BW/10 kHz dev, then stereo difference and SAP was above that, similar to an FM radio station except the subcarrier offsets were different). The frequencies were in former TV channels 70-83 but those were reassigned for telephone and 2-way radio usage back in the mid or late 1980s. This is why many older TV sets and VCRs could monitor AMPS transmissions by playing with the fine-tuning controls when on those channels. (Somebody please feel free to correct me on those bandwidths and deviations!)

    Carriers couldn't wait to get rid of AMPS. It was a spectrum hog. They could compress a lot more GSM and CDMA calls in the same channel space. In fact, AT&T finally got rid of 2G (TDMA) in January 2017. Again, lack of market share, spectrum hog, and everyone had finally moved on to GSM or LTE. In fact, 5G (actually not really a consumer standard) is on its way soon. More signals, less need for the older crap. It was pretty amazing. In 2008 AMPS went away, in 2009 NTSC (analog) television went away. And in a few years, the current digital ATSC will go away (ATSC 1.0) because ATSC 3.0 is around the corner. And that will use even less spectrum because the FCC is giving that away to the cell companies. ATSC 3.0 uses more compression than the current ATSC 1.0 does. And don't get me started on the landline side of things. I see huge changes in the next 5 to 10 years. Ain't technology grand?

    Changes of FCC regulation, lack of market demand and general obsolescence. In 2008 when the FCC modified rules to make AMPS carriage optional, most telcos were really quick to get rid of their AMPS services. There wasn't as much money to be had in SCPC AMPS services as there is in multiplex digital services. Funny thing though, depending where you are, if you are lucky enough you can sometimes find very small private (corporate?) AMPS base stations still in place. Usually corporate internal PBX patches I think. A friend and I came across one on a Moto brick fone a couple years ago that we believe was either at Boeing (Gresham, Ore.) or Wafertech (Camas, Wash.). What you can do with it (if anything) depends how the host PBX is configured, how big the company is and how far abandoned-in-place the base is. You'd probably stand a better chance of finding one at a huge multi/national headquarters or field office than a smaller local or regional-based company.

    *dusts thread off* Here's a couple nice things I found. 416-640-0000 - Ringout bridge on Allstream exchange 800-242-2121, extension 44009 - Modem on Avaya's Highland Ranch PBX I could've sworn I gave these out a few years ago, but a cursory search seems to suggest otherwise. Given it's election season, it only seems right to give them out. These're all a bunch of audio couplers on a Definity at CNN's Atlanta studios: 404-878 6040-6048 - Beep + program audio? 8041-8052 - Beep + talkback audio; mostly the director giving commands to the production staff, like when to switch cameras and whatnot. You don't get to hear anything back from the people operating the equipment. Most of these guys assume nobody but the crew is listening, so they'll occasionally comment on whatever is going on or make an off-color remark. Of all these, this is probably the least frequently used group of couplers. 9901-9912 - Beep + Program audio. This seems to be a fairly complete mix, but prior to the master control room, where they switch to commercials. Much like the director channel, they pretty much assume all eyes are off them when they're at a commercial. 9982-9996 - Beep + Program audio. This seems to be where after-hours or remote stuff occasionally comes from. 2037,38,39, and 40 are all music on hold sources that have the final mixes that go on air.

    A presidential candidate was a fancy 'experiment' for ShadyTel to take control of the country's entire telecom infrastructure. Hackers must either: Ensure ShadyTel's secrets never come to the light of day, and push their candidate into office. Make sure ShadyTel gets exposed as the shady shadsters they are... Or at least make people question WTF ShadyTel was thinking? Voila. Relevant, timely, and absolutely absurd.

    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!

    Strange telephone systems (from a westerner's viewpoint anyways) are pretty usual for Russia. The Soviet-era 300 MHz analog cellular system in eastern Russia and Siberia is still sometimes known to get relayed across the Pacific by the aging FLTSATCOM (maybe also UFO?) birds (essentially just simple downconverter-based FM "repeaters" that will happily relay any audio they hear as long as it falls within the transponders' passbands) along with the Brazilians on 240-270 MHz... UFO 6 Tp. 20 (255.550 MHz) (Best coast) - very popular with Brazilian pirates. Shared frequency with FLTSATCOM 8 (East coast) so there's more or less nationwide coverage. Put it in your scanner before you head off for a long road trip and monitor away.

    They put in a couple every year. They don't all (but typically do) replace one when they're installed. Given the sluggish time frame, how many they're going to install is probably a question of how AT&T's politics work out for them in the long term. The current band of executives has been responsible for some borderline irrational decisions in the past, like grandfathering all non-IP services on their CLEC divisions in 2013. No, seriously. Their CLEC network was then and still is, aside from a few Sonuses, pretty much all circuit switches, and much of their voice over IP traffic is hauled to the customer over T1 circuits. It's like a halfbaked version of Apple's decision to remove the floppy drive/audio output/whatever else from their products.

    If I have time before I leave on yet another business trip, I'll contact a friend of mine at iConetiv (the successor to Bellcore, Telcordia, etc. etc.) to see what 1As are still around. Sad when Lafayette Main goes away since that's where my friend Mark Cuccia lived. He was the one who always tracked the last 1AESS switches in the US. Sadly he passed away in 2014. That's why I'm keeping this thread alive in his memory. (TP knows who he is too.)

    415-380-0007 - ANAC? 415-380-0076,0099 - 911 non-emergency recording. This is probably what they give the sort of people who call 911 on the neighbor's dog or whatever. You'll see echo tests that're broken like that pretty consistently. I've started to wonder if it's intentional or something. As for the 978 number, ISDN codecs work by transporting g.722 or AAC or whatever over the B channel where the mu-law PCM on most normal phone calls would be. Usually if a call from a non-ISDN line comes in (I think they tell this by whether or not the bearer cap indicates it's a data call; it can be data, speech, or 3.1 khz audio), they'll either tell the switch to reject the call, which usually gets you indefinite ringback from it, or even send you a mu-law feed of whatever is going into it. Some codecs though - like this one, tend to be not so great at telling the difference between the two.

    I'm not sure if you considered this, but you may want to consider bonding the two interfaces to a hosted machine. Then when an ISP gets cut by a backhoe, you're still rocking at the same IP address. Additionally, you would also get a nice boost in speed. Considering that congress has passed legislation on selling our network habits to 3rd parties, I think VPN and VPS providers are going to be in a growth period for a while.

    Actually, they shut down the GSM network too; only T-Mobile provides large-scale GSM service in the US now. I'd argue that probably has more to do with AT&T's corporate politics than general obsolescence, but if T-Mobile follows suit, we'll definitely talk. But yeah - as others have said, by 2008, basically nobody made new stuff that spoke AMPS, and it used up a considerable amount of spectrum to boot. I don't think surveillance is a huge issue to most consumers judging by how the Snowden leaks have gone down, but A5/1, the encryption standard used in GSM, has been considered insecure for quite some time now. I dunno about UMTS and LTE, but you do hear about people devising attacks against them occasionally. To what degree though, I'm not quite sure. EDIT: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KASUMI That being said, I think CDMA has been facing the axe as well. From what I understand, that has a lot to do with Qualcomm doing licensing on an annual (or monthly, I forget which) basis. Once they end of life the base station equipment, unless you can find some way to bypass the licensing (which would probably be a serious breach of contract. No established carrier would dare upsetting a big manufacturer like that), it's basically a paperweight; end of story. Someone who works with that sort of thing has remarked that a lot of recent carrier-side infrastructure is no longer made with the idea of longevity in mind. Hmmmm! I wonder if I should start carrying something that searches for AMPS signals on long trips. Could you flip through FCC licenses to get an idea of who might be doing this?

    I have a MacBook Pro, I believe the first year they made retina display. It rarely gets warm during normal use, and even more rare will the fan come on. But when the fan actually does spin up, and sounds as if its never going to stop accelerating in speed, It always startles me at first and I find it little disturbing. Usually because I moved on from whatever resource intensive task I started in the background, and usually forgotten there is no noticeable performance decline with other tasks. But if I were to make the choice again to buy MacBook Pro again, and spend the amount of money I did, I'd seriously consider going with Macbook Air and maybe with a desktop system too. It's fine for a few hours of web browsing but in no way can match the battery life of Mac Book air. Also a bit too heavy to lounge around with for casual browsing. One of the iMacs I have has some type liquid cooling and head dissipators inside towards to core of the unit. I always ran very hot where as the unit i had purchased about 4 years prior, roughly same price and display size rarely got warm and had had no plumbing in it.

    Ok, I know this is going to sound stupid but... Did you actually run it? If you did then probably could be what tekio said your firewall could be blocking the out going connection. It also might be your antivirus. It doesn't look like you encoded the payload so if you have anti virus when you upload the payload to the system and try to run it the antivirus will scan the program and work out its a malicious file then quarantine and/or delete it. Try setting the port for the TCP reverse shell to 80 (HTTP) or using an actually HTTP specific payload. Port 80 is usually not blocked by your firewall so all traffic on port 80 is just allowed to go through. This is because port 80 is the port web traffic travels on and we can't go around blocking all are web traffic, can we? If you want just disable your firewall. When it comes to antivirus you need to encode your payload which you can do with msf venom. Encoding a payload makes it harder for antivirus to detect. TBH I can't be fucked looking up the syntax in msfvenom on how to do this so just look up how to encode a payload in msfvenom and you should be fine. Of course this is not guaranteed to work. It might be best just to disable your antivirus altogether if you're just learning. If you are interested in this stuff I'd recommend you read "Penetration testing: a hands-on introduction to hacking". I read it and it's where most of my computer hacking knowledge comes from. Granted, it will not give you enough background to go out and hack highly secured environments. In order to be a real hacker you need to know more then just how to use some tools, you need to know how computers actually work. Anyways best of luck to you :) Here is the book https://repo.zenk-security.com/Magazine E-book/Penetration Testing - A hands-on introduction to Hacking.pdf Regards, ReAiFi

    This may seem really stupid but I've moved from playing with brute forcing and trying to learn to code etc to vehicle modification. I've learned quite a lot but still dabble in tech stuff. There's this thing with a software called vcm editor/aka hp tuners. They don't want to allow dpf removal on diesel trucks. Because epa blah blah blah. Can some one point me in the direction of turning this attached file into a bin file and possibly back? I know it may not work but i'm just wondering how can I do this if at all. This is a totally unmodified straight from a truck computer file. I'm thinking of using something a long the lines of winols which is a software that allows building and modifying of said bin files. If anyone need links to vcm editor let me know. It's up on the hptuners main page you can down load it there or I can host elsewhere. 2016FordF250Base.hpt

    well the zen is pretty similar to intel design, where bulldozer(and children) were totally different like.. a david core, to the intel being the goliath core. where the zen core is functionally about 1.5 of the integer cores and the entire fpu but bit beefed up/changed of the bulldozer module also with some kind of cheap smt where. its going to be much faster single threaded and on the back end still have good performance through the higher utilization by switching in the other queued work any time theres a stall/fetch whatever where the bulldozer was only good if you loaded every thread/everything to the max where it would use all the units, so any kind of mixed workload where it went single threaded intel would pull ahead with say the 3770k vs the 8350, but in specifically highly parallel workloads like transcoding, ray tracing, encryption/decryption file compression/decompression then the amd throws down sort of between the regular intel core or like phenom/athlon2, and xeonphi kind of a weird compromise

    Most carriers round up to the nearest minute. As for supe, usually you can flash to figure out. If you get a stutter dialtone, it's suped. If it stays there, it hasn't. Yup. Well, where they work anyway. It's sort of hit and miss. EDIT: Oh, right. So I promised a recording of a crossbar switch. So, here's a good number from that Crossbar thread I made a while back; +380-542-33-6600. http://thoughtphreaker.omghax.ca/audio/ukraine_xbarbusy.wav At first glance, it sounds a little plain. But if you turn up the volume and filter out the tone, you get this... http://thoughtphreaker.omghax.ca/audio/ukraine_xbar_mfflutter.wav The ex-Soviet countries have this weird inband system that lets them send not in service messages via MFs, which winds up translating into an SS7 cause code by the time you get it. So even finding a busy number like this takes a good while.

    Maybe if you have AT&T as your LD carrier you can still have a post-paid card? Mine was turned off mid-October. (It was a direct billed to a credit card since I haven't had AT&T as my LD carrier for... 15 plus years!) I've had a calling card with AT&T for probably 20 years. Sad it was finally deactivated.

    Sure! Here's the most obvious thing you can do; http://thoughtphreaker.omghax.ca/audio/anac_holdup.wav . If you know the number for ANAC, you can flash right as it's about to hang up, and if you come back at just the right time, it'll just ignore the trunk when it tries to go on-hook. If you want to try your hand at other things, or just don't know the number for ANAC (no worries, Windstream is fairly good at hiding stuff), it doesn't stop there. Sadly though, it doesn't - at least not to the best of my knowledge, apply to things with common channel signaling, like q.931 or SS7. But yeah, let's start with something simple and common: POTS. It's a little simpler here; if you flash over, the other person can't! I wrote in a big post about this a few years ago; http://www.binrev.com/forums/index.php?/topic/46235-getting-to-the-bottom-of-a-dms-bug/ The most obvious question is if the switch still stops you from flashing when the other person hangs up, can you transfer to something that keeps you restricted like that? Better yet, without even heading down there, is there anything I can call that'll still keep that flashing restriction on? I think this is the result of some sort of resource restriction. The switch was probably designed with the idea that you'd never need to put more than one DTMF receiver on a call. If flashing was implemented in some way that never completely disconnects you from your original phone call, it could be impossible to get a DTMF receiver allocated to the person on the other end, so since it can't do that, it just ignores you. With that in mind, though... A. For whatever it's worth, things that need a digit receiver to work, like the integrated selective call forwarding IVR, won't let you flash, let alone let you use it on three-way. Though since on-hook calls won't let you flash either, that could be for other reasons. B. That still doesn't explain why call waiting doesn't work. C. If that's true, not letting the other person flash after you hang up was probably a stupid decision. So obviously, the most effective use of this is to trip up something that needs to flash, like a centrex auto-attendant if you happen to have something like that on the same switch. The voicemail systems on a lot of ex-GTE switches also flash for transfers. But if you happen to live near any sort of power plant or anything, a lot of those places like to use ancient E&M trunks that, like the ANAC, use inband signaling and are probably wink-start if they exist. Someday I really want to figure out if they can be screwed with in a similar way. Anyway, sorry for the tangent. That bug always gets me asking nature-of-the-universe-y sort of questions. So - next thing! This is something I've actually been exploring a little more recently, because it happens in my neck of the woods a lot. There's some DMSes that'll reset you back to dialtone in pretty much any circumstance. There's only two I know that do that; the switch that serves the Houston/Bush Intercontinental Airport, and the one that serves Washington/Dulles International if I remember right; the last time I took a flight out of there was 2008. But anyway, there's certain SS7 cause codes that do that on a TON of DMSes. The most reliable numbers I've found that push that sort of thing back are 866-202-9985, or 800-WRI-GLEY (call it and choose any option that'll disconnect you; 5 will do this whenever the call center closes). The success rate for this depends on the switch. On some, it happens almost every time. Some, it's more like half or a third of the time. And others, well, never. But whenever it does, it can be your best friend against some piece of line restricting equipment - there's no battery drop or anything to signal that this is happening, other than a sudden increase in sidetone for a second. Some day, I want to find/make something that lets you end a call with any SS7 cause code you feel like to expose these sort of quirks. Did you try putting a CAC in front of it? Being able to dial 0xx traffic without one in front of it is a leprechaun level of rare. Sounds normal to me. Were you trying to call it on three-way by any chance? That'll change up the ring, among other things, quite significantly; http://thoughtphreaker.omghax.ca/audio/dms_different_tones.flac There's probably some regional bugs too. One thing I figured out by accident is on any Pacific - and possibly Nevada Bell DMS-100, if you dial * as the last three digits of a phone number (excluding a CAC; it has to be a destination) will make it suddenly stop in the middle of a partial dial recording and go to reorder. Or sometimes, it won't even get that far; if it stops in the middle of the SIT generation, you'll just hit dead silence. This isn't necessarily a DMS-100 thing - actually, it's much more of a EWSD thing, but some DMS-100s will route you to the local operator when you dial 101-0110-0. I think local traffic can be originated on that CAC too. In the way of features, there's a couple very nice ones to be on the lookout for; the first one is pretty self explanitory - when you scan DMS-100s, you'll semi-frequently find dialtones that just come out of nowhere. These are generally being done directly in the switch via software. It looks like you've found one already, actually. The dialplans on these are anything but usual, so if they don't work, be sure to try prefix digits and whatnot. For example, try pressing nine. If it doesn't give you dialtone, press *, and at the new dialtone, try 8, 7, etcetera. The next one is a little less obvious, but it's what we use to conf every night; the ringout bridge. I think it's a Centrex-specific feature, but sometimes you find it in non-centrex areas, like test ranges. Basically, it rings with normal DMS-100 ring; there's no way to distinguish it from any other DMS number that doesn't pick up. Then, when another person comes on, it'll go offhook, bridge you together, and use another ringback tone (from a different source, oddly enough) to let you know someone has joined. The limit on these is in software, but I think you can have up to 32 people in there. Another quirk you'll occasionally find is the EDRAM announcements on the switch will occasionally play really briefly, stop, ring, and then play from the beginning. I dunno why, but they just do. This post is sorta blowing out of control in size, but I'll edit it if I can think of anything else. In the meantime, one thing you might want to try is a CAC + #; so like, 101-0555# to get a dialtone from a toll switch. If you know your own CAC, that's probably the best use of it, since most carriers are reluctant to give you one unless you're subscribed to them. It looks like you might have the right circumstances to get a dialtone from 0288#. Try dialing some toll-free numbers on it.

    We're sorry, but the number you've dialed was lost in the 70's. Please figure out time travel, then try your call again.

    So for a while, I've been experimenting with the concept of a semi-automatic scan. So last week, I just set a modem down on a toll-free range, and woke up several hours later to a recording with a thousand (or so) numbers in it. So far, I've got to say - this has just been tedious and exhausting. Probably not something I'll repeat unless I'm going on a long plane trip or something, but it definitely got results. 800-860 0000 - Call center 0001 - Ad 0002 - ex-Embarq VMB, full 0003 - Ringout 0004 - NIS via SS7 0005 - Ad 0006 - DMS-100 ringout 0007 - Ad 0008 - Ringout 0009 - Ad 0010 - Worldcom DMS-250 NIS 0011 - Ad 0012 - Cannot be reached from calling area 0013 - Business w/Avaya PBX.

    Yeah, if you're looking at old scan textfiles then a carrier is a modem carrier. You can identify them by their metal screeching though you should find recordings to differentiate between a fax carrier and a modem carrier signal. You could connect to them over voip, I think, using a terminal program like Term90 or HyperTerminal. Okay, okay, I don't know offhand of any modern dial-up terminal programs. Guess I should research that. Might be a ton of BBSes under my nose and me without a trusty US Robotics.

    Likely going to be my first miss. I am just so out of the scene that I really do not have much desire to go to these anymore. They are just scenes now... or I turned into a jaded old man. Possibly both.

    Hey guys I'm pretty new to phones and scanning and found this weird thing and was wondering if any of you guys happen to know what this thing is: 601-748-4225 enter 5555# - it seems to be some kind of monitor with weird conversations.   Any idea?   --heartbreakr

    Ohh, interesting. Might there exist a group of people that actively seek out these old systems? I sincerely believe someone out there cares enough to do so

    Since you can't easily do MF, why not modify the code to pulse out 2600 when you push the digit keys, like the old pre-MF step tandems used? Timing should be 66 milliseconds of 2600 Hz, followed by 34 milliseconds of silence for each pulse, with about 500 milliseconds between each digit: Digit zero would be 10 sequences of 66ms/34ms 2600, with a 500ms pause before the next digit, for example. You still need to define a key to play 2600 for about 1.5 seconds for trunk seizure. You could also write the code to accept a number, then outpulse the entire number with the correct timings. There is a number on CNET that this can be used to dial with. This is essentially the method used by Cap'n Crunch and Joe Engressia to phreak step tandems or switches that accepted older SF trunks from step tandems. Routes that used this method of tone signalling were already pretty rare back in the late 60's and early 70s when they used this technique. You had to discover a number that routed through a step tandem from your dialing location, usually by trial and error. Vancouver, BC in Canada had one such switch. D.

    "ChinaNet-tQGc". All kinds of stuff like that happens with Chinese companies - TP-Link is a Chinese company. At work we get USB flash drives, to distribute our software on, directly from the Chinese manufacturer that produces them. We have a special computer not hooked to the network just for formatting them. Every 1 of about 100 will contain some nasty malware preinstalled for us.

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

    If Emmanuel Goldstein were as mercenary as that link claims, I don't think he would have such a liberal policy on reprinting 2600 content and copying the Freedom Downtime DVD. Nor would he offer recordings of the HOPE conference sessions for free download. The registration fee for HOPE would probably be higher, too, judging by what most similar conferences of that size charge.

    What is microsoft frontpage? Ive heard about it on certain sites. Is it useful? Is it more of a language or software, or can you incorperate HTML or anything with it?
