  1. If you like really obscure switches, you might want to give rural Alaska or Missouri a call. Despite the GX-5000 being ancient and end of lifed in like, 2001, I've been able to confirm that ACS of the Northland and the Choctaw Telephone company still use them. The ACS Northland GX-5000s, for whatever reason, ring a bunch of times and generate a reorder when you call a non-working number on them.
  2. So a bit of an update; I've got the aforementioned detection code running on analog JCT boards, and have been experimenting with implementing this as an ISDN thing on JCT T1 and DM3 boards. It's gone good so far (aside from a couple nasty bugs), and at the end of the day, is something I'm quite proud of. Namely because I had to do my own implementation of (most of) a Q.931 stack. For that reason, it's attached to the general Dialogic IVR/ISDN router/voicemail/whatever code I already have. One of these days, I'd like to make this a little more flexible in terms of configuration, add a few additional features (a couple projects in progress are conferencing and doing realtime processing/playback of streams from the internet, though I'd like to add a basic GR-303 phone switch to it in good time), make everything a little more presentable, and throw the source up for anyone to use. Especially since when you look at the software that's currently out there for these cards, it's one of the few things that takes real advantage of what they can do, and quite frankly, doesn't suck.To give you some context on this, I'll leave you with the like, one piece of software that actually, just barely, supports DM3 stuff, and only for basic functions: https://voiceguide.com/ . Kinda makes a huge buzzkill out of $30 quad T1/E1 cards with their own, functionally independent OS/DSP/timeslot interchange/etc, doesn't it? Doubly so seeing as you have to run it in Windows. Anyway, I don't mean to derail the thread or anything. Are there any other tones that should be added to a wardialer? It's been a very, very long time coming to make wardialers useful for finding things that aren't modems. and whatever you're choosing to do it with, I think this is the thread for it. For that matter, can this detection be added to things like, say, Cisco routers (they can do a reasonable amount of IVR stuff with TCL scripts) or voice modems?
  3. A friend of mine more into the computer side of things mentioned that there's some attacks based on strcmp (basically, a string compare function) and the amount of time it takes for the function to execute; basically, the function only executes until it finds a character that doesn't match. So for example, if you enter a password of 12345 but a computer is expecting 12335, strcmp will stop after the second three since no matter what, it's not going to match. So this got me thinking; in a TDM network, there's basically no varying latency once a connection is set up. A lot of IVR platforms like to return strings too, and strcmp is used very extensively for comparing them in exactly that circumstance. If you were to record the amount of time it took to compare passcodes, I'm willing to bet you'd see a tiny difference (as in, maybe a nanosecond or two) in how fast it responds with a recorder. So while if you have a nice network connection without any sort of packetization or anything this could be perfect, the flipside of this is there's a lot of IVR applications that are single threaded; basically, only one request executes at a time. So if someone else is using another channel on it, it might finish up their request before getting to yours. So this may be an attack that works significantly better late at night. EDIT: Heh, yeah,so it occurred to me that measuring nanoseconds over an 8000 samples/second medium might not be a good idea. Not that I'm still not going to see if there's any measurable difference in execution time.
  4. So I just finished up doing a basic run-through of beep tones for various voicemail and answering machines. Keep in mind if you're implementing this on something like Dialogic hardware and actually want to measure the time of the tone (you're awesome for going the extra mile if you do), you'll have to account for how long the voicemail system will listen for silence before waffling on with menu options or hanging up or whatever; it's not considered the end of a cadenced tone until it hears something else. Since this is user definable, I'd suggest testing with a nice average, like 9 seconds of silence after the tone with five second deviation (so 4 through 14 seconds of silence before it hears something else). Bear in mind too that if you're going to use any sort of IP trunking, packet loss is going to hamper performance quite a bit; if there's packet loss in the tone, it'll be considered two short tones instead of one long one. If there's packet loss concealment, it's going to stretch the samples out to an inconsistent length. Anyway, I'll probably update this with more stuff in time.

  5. ...aka the Fuck Scribd thread. For some reason, people have uploaded a ton of hard to find documentation to this site, so I'm sticking it here where it belongs. I don't have a very permanent place for these documents at the moment, but you're more then welcome to do whatever you want with them. Here's an index of the documents: - Verizon Central Office Concepts: Introduction to Telephony Basics (2002) - CCITT7 in the 5ESS Switch - 5ESS Cable Guidelines Handbook - Switch-Basics-5ESS.doc (despite the name, it also talks a bit about the Alcatel E10/OCB-283 and EWSD) - BSNL-5-ESS.pdf (there's a few of these. Sorry, some of the Indian intro documents are a bit redundant) - Innovative Systems Applications Peripheral Administration Center software manual - 5ESS-2000 V5 Student Guide - Taqua/Tekelec/Genband/whoever the hell owns it now T7000 Command Line Interface Manual - 5ESS Switch Circuit Pack Compatibility Guide - DMS-300 International Gateway Feature Planning Guide 1998 - 5ESS Switch Input Messages: Volume 3: BKUP - END - 5ESS Switch Input Messages: Volume 8: STP:M - WRT - Alcatel 1000 S12 Functional Description - Cognitronics McIAS 1610 (aka Expanded Announcement System) manuals - EWSD Overview in One Day (Powerpoint with lots of annoying transition effects, but does a good job explaining the switch's architecture) - AT&T Ask Yourself Handbook, Issue 42, 11/15/11 - Lahore Telecom College Alcatel Exchange Book - 1 - Alcatel 1000 E10 MTNL Training Report - DMS Supernode XA Core Product Brief And if manuals aren't your thing, there's some logs! So for some reason, someone uploaded Mexican switch logs to the site with a lot of trunk group printouts. Not only does the guy log into several DMS-100s and CS-2000s, one time his password gets echoed back in plain text! Incidentally, if you look at some of the DMS-100 banners, you'll see that some of them have '88k' or 'XAC' next to the software version. These seem to be processor architectures; in the early life of the DMS-100, it was using what Nortel called the NT40 card. From what Wikipedia says, apparently it was composed mostly of discrete logic chips. Then the DMS Supernode Computing Module was based on a pair of Motorola 68k processors. By the early nineties, they were rolling out 88k processors. And by 2000, well, I have no idea. There's new CM cards Nortel made based on what they vaguely call "XA Core", or, well, Extended Architecture Core. Pretty specific, hm? Anyway, on some of these CS-2000 will have something labeled 'PPC3' in their place. Kinda makes you wonder. Did they start using PowerPC chips? http://www21.zippyshare.com/v/27859110/file.html
  6. Just dialing 101-0288-0 from a phone line. I get around a lot. That being said, it seems like OSPS translations have been updated to make these routings a lot more common. If you checked it before and it failed, I'd encourage you to check it again. That being said, I've tried this from payphones I've confirmed use this routing pattern, and it doesn't seem to work. EDIT: If you want to use the old routing pattern, various AT&T/SBC CACs still use it.
  7. There's always been little slip-ups in the way AT&T restricts 800 numbers from 101-0288-0, for anyone old enough to remember that. But more recently, they've been doing some sort of weird call distributing technique; for example, if you're in one of these affected areas, they'll distribute calls to different OSPS switches throughout the country. Something about the trunk group you come in on instructs the network to allow 800 calls out from OSPS again from these areas. If you're around any of these areas, I've confirmed with some friends that it'll work: Washington, DC San Francisco, California Ontario, California Fresno, California Muskegon, Michigan Oberlin, Ohio Cincinatti, Ohio Lincoln, Nebraska Orlando, Florida Tampa, Florida Manchester, New Hampshire Denver, Colorado Dickinson, Texas Des Moines, Iowa Springfield, Massacheusetts Chicago, Illinois Rolla, Missouri Kansas City, Missouri Fargo, North Dakota As always, toll-free calls through the Honolulu and San Juan OSPSes will go through like they always have. There's also a few interesting scenarios, like tiny LECs with direct trunks to OSPS, where toll-free traffic has always gone through.
  8. I've been doing development on and off of things of this nature for the Diva and JCT/DM3 cards with a friend - and hopefully more platforms soon. If I can get results I'm happy with relative to handscanning, I'll post some more about it. For the interim though, here's a partial wardial of a DMS-500, and what results I get from calling the numbers normally: https://pastebin.com/jra4HUB0 PAMD means Positive Answering Machine Detection, PVD is Positive Voice Detection (these are the stupid Dialogic marketing terms that come back from the call progress detector. I should really change that), CB is cadence break (for example, something answered in the middle of a ring cycle, and no other tones were detected). The code has since been updated to differentiate between modems and faxes. One thing I'd like to do next is voicemail tone recognition to differentiate between unique systems. I'll post the frequencies here if you'd like to do the same. There's some things though, like distinguishing between different ringback tones, that I doubt the DSP will ever be able to do. While it sounds annoying to have to pull together, other software on the host computer could very well do it. One more frustrating thing about the JCT cards is their ability (by default anyway) to tell the difference between different SITs is limited, so they're not of much help in finding interesting error recordings. Honestly, I have really mixed feelings about this. I don't want to get lazy and stop looking at ranges by hand, but this has proven really useful for finding test ranges on obscure switches like this one. The DSPs are fast, flexible and ruthlessly efficient. Back to voice modems though, don't some of them have tone recognition features? I'd assume at least with the Diva, you can adjust what tones it comes back with from the AT interface. With the code I pasted - and presumably other things since it uses the default tone definitions, if you happen to have the misfortune of hitting a Definity over a trunk with something horrible like g.729, it'll sometimes mistake the warble/intercept tone (the thing that goes back and forth between 620 and 440 hertz) for a dialtone.

  10. I've been working a little bit with the Definity today, and thought an update would be warranted: So through some quick trial and error and comparing to older releases, I was able to find the 2560 byte blob that is the license file in the translations, an identical copy stored in RAM by the fg_mapa process. Strangely enough, there seems to be some sort of redundant copy of this around somewhere; if you start manipulating the copy in fg_mapa and tell the switch to test the license, it'll very quickly change it back to what it should be. Thankfully, the switch comes with some very nice debugging utilities that should make figuring out where it's getting another copy to fix this (it isn't the translations card; I tried pulling that out. Though obviously, if you corrupt the copy on the translations card, it's going to have a much harder time getting another copy from RAM when you reboot. This helped verify a lot of this) a lot easier. There's going to be a few things to consider here, like how an actual license file differs from what the Definity stores (you're supposed to be able to paste it in using the ossi interface on the switch. The Definity won't accept the license you pull from RAM, however), but all in all, this should make the rest of the process a lot less painful.
  11. Heh, now that's sort of a weird coincidence. I was working on a Linux Diva dialer earlier today! This is in C, but given the similarities of the API calls, feel free to use any of this if you find it useful; it's just a modified version of demo code and the default tone detection rules. If it interests anyone enough, I'll get off my ass and make it multi-channel/a little more script friendly. That being said, imho, there's a much more practical use of telephony boards like these though. Granted, this is written for a CG6565E (also modified demo code. I do write actual things; the CG cards are sort of an annoyance to develop for though, so I'm keeping away from it for now), but take a listen: nmsscan.wav . The star key is returning the last four digits of the number being dialed. 6 is being used to move that number up by one, and five is being used to play back what happened on that particular number. Other than that, all signal processing is manual. Sorry about the noisy/low volume to the distant end; there's a reason for that. But more to the point, notice we blew through nine numbers (with a lot of ringouts) in the span of two minutes. If anybody wants the prefix of this though, it's 720-746. A compromise of these two ideas would be amazing; something that, for example, let you review scans, but skip over common things like vacant numbers, or perhaps more importantly, numbers that just ring and go nowhere. As the recording demonstrates, that's easily the most time consuming part of a scan. Though it can also be rewarding long term if you're looking to learn how to compare the sound of ringback from one switch type to the next. > /*----------------------------------------------------------------------------- * * Copyright 2001-2014 Dialogic(R) Corporation * * All Rights Reserved. * * This software is the property of Dialogic Corporation and/or its * subsidiaries ("Dialogic").

  12. There's been a conference that's consistently been going on every day at 10 PM Eastern. If you're bored, drop by . 631-788-0001, xt. BINREv
  13. So earlier today, I happened to call a CVS Pharmacy, and out of sheer boredom, started hitting options that weren't listed on the IVR. As luck would have it, 8+xxx will transfer you to a three-digit extension in the store! The few constants I've noticed from a quick, cursory glance are 4xx go to IVR extensions, 500 prompts you to log in - presumably to voicemail, and the lower extensions seem to be for in-store stuff. 100 pretty consistently goes to a fax. If you happen to have a "friendly" neighborhood CVS near you, be sure to give them a "friendly" phreak welcome .
  14. The ability to use OSPS seems to be on a switch-by-switch basis. I'm not quite sure what the pattern is, but if you want to scope this out, I encourage you to check every office you can locally.
  15. I've had a few people report that in some areas where this doesn't work yet you home off of a 5ESS toll tandem (and can dial 101-0288# and get a dialtone from it), sometimes dialing 101-0288# and then 0 at the dialtone will work. I'm beginning to think this has less to do with the office you're coming out of, and more to do with something in the SS7 initial address message. EDIT: I'll try to confirm, but this exception may not apply to payphones.
  16. Great to see some new faces! Especially in this thread. 0051 is a DATU. 0037 is a 105-type test as I think it's officially called. I think the idea is they do trunk testing. In any case, press 2, #, etc to make it produce tones and noise. 0 commonly hangs up on those things. 407-238-6209,6238 - Elevators on hotel PBX (Nortel Meridian) 407-238-6214 - Modem on hotel PBX: CONNECT CentOS release 6.5 (Final) Kernel 2.6.32-431.29.2.el6.x86_64 on an x86_64 XetaCAS_22832_MarriottRoyalPalms login: 843-414-0052 - rec, "We're sorry, your telephone is temporarily out of order.

  17. MtnHell and I talked about this a while back. It appears the switch is sending a battery drop and putting him back on his own dialtone. I've only seen a 5ESS reset like that a few times before in...ever. Usually only with very specific circumstances, like someone releasing a coin trunk, or CAC-0-710+ call attempts.
  18. For whatever it's worth, when I worked in broadcasting, most radio stations I saw used Telos NX12 or Vx hybrids. I would try to familiarize yourself with those (sometimes they have promotional videos with a DJ inside the booth - that'd be a good place to look for either) and see if you can match the sounds up with them. For whatever it's worth, in addition to the echo cancellation as Jman mentioned, there's also an option for other processing on most modern hybrids, like multi-band compression and automatic gain control.
  19. A friend of mine brought back Scanaday: https://www.aniparty.pw/
  20. Sure enough, 101-9017-1-405-959-0000 from a switch in Oklahoma City gets you some sort of weird test number from the tandem switch. Other stuff probably isn't far behind.
  21. :I thought it'd be a good idea to keep a thread open for small, marginally interesting tricks that can be applied in the network. Especially since they can sometimes turn into larger things when they're explored. So, well, I'll start: In lots of ex-SBC areas, you can dial your home NPA + 700-4141 and get a recording from one of the local tandems (as in, a non-toll switch that handles calls between you and an exchange down the road or to a toll carrier) thanking you for choosing SBC as your intra-LATA toll carrier. Sometimes the switch blocks it or redirects it to your toll carrier, so you might have to use 101-0110 or 101-9017 to circumvent this. Also, HPNA-958/959-xxxx will try to complete from the operator IVR on these same switches, but seems to get a cause code or something back quite quickly. I dunno what this is supposed to reach or if some areas treat it differently than others, but usually you get a recording from the TOPS tandem when you hit something invalid.
  22. There's several numbers nearby, like 752-8055, that go to an ANAC.
  23. It's a very low hanging fruit in terms of exploits; any random script kiddie bot that happens upon it is going to have a hell of a good day. Given how frequently ISP modems are compromised now (for example, one of the Actiontecs where a remote administration interface is permanently stuck on 4567 or 7654 or whatever; I've seen people with these get free, grimly successful security audits) and how little of a say users are able to have in securing them, if you have a minimal, "the ISP just gave me this modem so I hook stuff up to it" configuration, I wouldn't put Audix anywhere near the internet. If you don't want to use a dial-up modem to administer it, you could always use a KVM or something; I'd recommend this more than an isolated ethernet network simply because Audix is designed to use an old version of Netscape to access the web UI from itself. The system runs very old SSL certificates, wants you to execute very old Java applications, and wants you to use a very outdated SSH session to administer it. Security aside, you're going to have trouble finding browsers that want to deal with that. And then you'll have to configure Java to actually execute the administration program it feeds you, unless you can figure out what it's supposed to be running. If I remember right, the Avaya Java SSH thing runs 'exec Fc' after it logs in to access the administration program. Given both the obscurity and how the C-LAN card runs a functionally independent OS (an old build of VxWorks) from the switch, the Definity shouldn't be any trouble so long as you're okay with telnet. I'd still recommend using a modern Linux system with SSH and running the system with minicom. Or a dial-up modem, just because I'm that sort of person. I've detailed in this thread how the VT220 mode can be used with an off the shelf terminal. There are however, undocumented TCP ports open on the card. I doubt your average automated Chinese script kiddie scanner is going to pose a threat to it, but use your own best judgement on that. You're in the wrong place if you think some horrendously bootleg mismatch of hardware running Audix is some sort of hallowed Avaya prayer ground. Or certainly if you don't want to get creative and dirty up your install. Encouraging anyone not to touch it goes completely against everything the hacking spirit stands for, and certainly the spirit of the effort on this thread to turn paperweights into powerful systems again. That being said, if you're going to stick your head in the sand to the tune of a 16-year old Linux kernel, proprietary or otherwise, any very cursory nmap scan will give a very good idea of it's age to someone else. Perhaps you weren't paying attention when it was shown that the license file on these cards is encrypted using DES. With keys that're clearly sitting in the header files that we have no less. Or that the system has absolutely no RAM protection, allows you to read and write to any address you please freely as a higher level user, that we have init access on these releases, and that we know the RAM addresses where the ASG keys sit on the switch. It's certainly an annoyance, I'll grant you. Nobody has approached me offering to help sstep the pam process on the Definity while the license file is being read, and for that reason, my motivation on more computer-oriented projects has been more to wrangle up Dialogic cards into doing sketchy things like scanning. Someday it'll make me really happy to unlock my release 11 Definity card, and certainly help everyone else do the same. For the moment though, most functionality on it works fine, and until I see more initiative to collaborate on this, I don't especially feel like trudging through pages of MIPS instructions. What sort of hardware architecture the system runs on is inconsequential to the licensing routine. You've been repeating lines like this without providing any source or supporting evidence other than friends at Avaya, who're imaginary for all we know. Either you're some sort of Definity troll, or don't know what you're talking about.
  24. Like everyone says every time we do one of these, it's been a while! Show us your tastes in shameless materialism! $30 PCIE quad T1/E1 Dialogic DM3 card https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dialogic-Digital-Fax-Board-T1-E1-PCIe-DMV1200BTEPEQ-DMV1200BTEPJP-Telephony/282838946135?epid=1922689281&hash=item41da83d157:g:IAYAAOSwR21ZwpAK These are really nice cards for a number of reasons. The one holdback is you really need to know C to make them worth your while. If you have anything that speaks T1 and can stomach a bit of programming though, they are very much worth it. I'm running a similar model that routinely gets at least a couple hours of use every day. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Cisco-IAD2431-SPIAD2431-1T1E1-V03-2-Port-10-100-Wired-Router-IAD2431-1T1E1/263503336710?epid=99404097&hash=item3d5a05d506:g:KFIAAOSwaMhZwtZb Cisco IAD2431-1T1E1 router. You can't beat a Meridian or Definity for home use - there's no getting around that, but these are surprisingly flexible for a home network if you can tolerate the Cisco CLI, have a channel bank to use some analog lines with, and don't have enough room for a larger PBX like the aforementioned ones (and don't want to write a switch program to work with the card I just linked; they have GR-303 stacks). These particular models do TDM hairpinning as well, so the call is end to end circuit switched when there's no DSP involvement. There's really cheap VIC modules for FXO, ISDN BRI (though it won't do data calls), FXS (I'd recommend the channel bank though; I like it better than the Cisco analog stuff), etc lying around as well to make it interface with whatever you have. Just beware; it does have IVR capabilities, but they kinda suck. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Used-Carrier-Access-Adit-600-Unit-with-3-FXS-Cards-TDM-Controller/183114060632?hash=item2aa272d358:g:HE0AAOSwJGlZhPg7 Adit 600 channel bank. Cheap as they come, and as good as they get for home POTS stuff. They also do weird things like ISDN BRI if you can find the cards for them. 8434DX phone for the Definity. The VFD tends to be indescribably awesome on these, and on the later phones (post-1997 or so; look for any without the AT&T logo), have off the shelf Noritake VFDs you can get for cheap to swap them with. Especially nice if you get stuck with a set that has a worn VFD. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Avaya-Lucent-Definity-8434DX-Display-Phone-in-Black-Refurbished-1Yr-Warranty/360688304873?hash=item53fab2c2e9:g:VywAAOSwaB5Xtk5r https://www.ebay.com/itm/Telos-Zephyr-ISDN-Codec-9202-Layer-III-II/232683424480?hash=item362d034ae0:g:TS0AAOSwjY1aixyk Telos Zephyr; ISDN MP2/MP3 audio transceiver. These are buckets of fun if you have access to one; most radio stations and recording studios have compatible models you can connect to and get really nice sounding feeds of their mixing consoles from. Also, http://wpr.org/isdn/ . The newer Xstream models tend to answer automatically for normal phone calls and patch you into their audio input instead of deny them as these do. https://www.ebay.com/itm/TASCAM-DR-07-Portable-Digital-Recorder-W-SD-Card/112853473299?epid=99407338&hash=item1a46975813:g:cDAAAOSwHM1any6e Tascam DR-07; these are flash based field recorders. I've been using one for about eight years, and can attest to them being a great way to record your, er, mishaps on the PSTN, among other things. Also, they tend to not break. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Meridian-NTFX00-M5317-ISDN-Office-Phone-Business-Telephone-FREE-SHIPPING/281650822675?hash=item4193b27e13:g:pJMAAOSwqu9VHZ9O Nortel ISDN BRI phone.
