ARU

9 posts in this topic

Reading that link is seems pretty self-explantory. I used them like ani #'s

and check out different lines and dnis in different places.

Oh, so the ARU *IS* the 800 555 1140 line? the 1140 line is the ARU?

Maybe I am being thrown off by the name.

from http://www.hackerhost.com/lph/ani2.txt

ARU ID Number audio response unit (ARU):

A device that provides synthesized voice responses to dtmf signaling

input by processing calls based on the call-originator input information

received from a host data base information in the incoming call,

such as the time of day.

the DNIS is what tells you the number you called (800-555-1140 = 03122, 800-555-1180 = 03125). Also try 800 225-5214 & 225-5313...they don't use the II digits, though.

Oh. I was under the impression that an ARU was a sub-menu on 800 555 1140. I didnt realize that 800 555 1140 *was* the ARU. Darn confusing files. :/

Yeah, sometimes texts can be confusing. I always try to read all the files, then read the "official" documents, when you can find them. But here's the deal on those 800-555 anacs, as I understand it. When you call, the first thing you hear is the ARU ID. There seems to be 5 different ones that you hear. So it identifies which audio response unit you reached on that particular call. Then you hear your line number, which is the truck that your call came in on. Next you hear the DNIS (dialed number identification service), which is a code for the actual phone number you just dialed. So 1(800) 555-1140=03122 (this number will always be the same, as opposed to the last two). Then you hear the II (identification indicator) digits, which identifies the type of service of your phone, then, of course, your BTN (billing telephone number). This is all from memory, so if I made a mistake, or left something out, I hope someone corrects it. Hope this helps. ;)

No problem, phax. ^_^ I actually may have been wrong about one thing, though. The phone number that reads back on those 800-555 ANAC's may not be the BTN.
