We have connected our Polycom and Cisco environment by use of a CMA and a VCS. This works fine.
Now we have added a VBP-E for Polycom connections to the "outside world" as a trusted neighbour. The VBP-E is in embedded gatekeeper mode.
The problem is that the VBP-E keeps stripping of the data after the @. So firstname.lastname@example.org arrives at our VCS-expressway as 12345. As we serve multiple domains at our VCS-expressway we need the domain.
Is there a way to disable this default behaviour of a VBP-E of addressstripping? There are alias manipulation rules to do this anyway.
Kind regards, Hans
In the VBP Web GUI under VoIP ALG --> H323 --> Alias Manipulation is where the VBP alias manipulation rules are configured. By default, it has four rules, and two of them are as follows:
Those rules will strip everything after the @ symbol in a dial string, so you probably want to remove them.
What version is your VBP running? If it is a version 11 VBP, then removing all of the alias manipulation rules should prevent it from modifying the dialstrings at all.
