  1. Come to think about it, I see what you mean. I know some history on Ma Bell, but I guess I thought I knew more than I do.
  2. 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!
  3. Makes sense, it's a lab switch, it wasn't meant to be too accessible...
  4. That makes sense, for this switch do you think it could be due to an unsuccessful database query?
  5. On the DMS-100, I dialed 1800-444-4444 and it gave me a dialtone. I tried dialing an outbound number and it gave me reorder. I tried an inbound number to the 5ESS and it connected me to the NIS 5ESS message. I also tried dialing 1-800-437-7950 and it gave me the same results. It seems like those two numbers are some form of portal into the 5ESS. I tried the same thing from the 5ESS and it didn't work.
  6. I'm curious, why are the phone companies replacing the 4ESS like that? Are the originals getting too old?
  7. I have an idea of what I did, I just have to redraw the plans. It's no problem, I'm glad I can share the plans with someone!
  8. Did you have problems with Ruby too? And I think iWar supports IAX2, if I remember correctly.
  9. I'm using Vonage, and honestly I'm not sure.
  10. 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.
  11. If you are using Linux, you could try WarVOX. It's a wardialer but it used VoIP instead of a modem. I haven't had success installing it honestly, but if you do let me know how it is!
  12. I've designed a blue box myself a while ago, it used two 555 timers and an LM386. I never got around to building it though, just didn't have the time or the parts. I'll redraw the plans and send them to you if you want me to. Have you heard of ProjectMF? If not, look it up and use your blue box there! I've had a lot of fun with ProjectMF using ToneDef on my cell phone.
  13. Also, is it still 10 pm Eastern?
  14. Nice! I'll see if I can dial in sometime soon!
  15. Is this still going on?
