I need to be able to send the digits "*" and "#" embedded within a digit string to the network over the D Channel of a BRI U NT, in order to invoke PSTN call forwarding. One can do this when the PBX (Norstar MICS) is directly connected to the telco BRI, but not when calls are processed thru the 550 or 830 switchboard (dialplan).
Is there any way of escaping these so they'll be processed by the dialplan like normal digits?
I'm afraid the ATLAS products will not pass a "*" or "#" in the dial string. There is no way around this limitation.
