    OK guys:

    I have setup a Zoom X5V ADSL router (with VoIP) on a remote site and
    successfully connected it to the Asterisk server at HQ - all working OK.

    To make things connect (all through VoIP, nothing over the PSTN/ADSL
    line) I deleted the default dial rules string, which was for the US
    anyway, but there are a couple of things I'd like to try and fix with a
    rule if necessary or possible. I have had a good read of the help pages
    and done a bit of Googling, but I'm not much the wiser on rule
    construction so here's the challenge:

    1) The attached phone is a BT model and it has a 1571 button on the
    front - can it be 'fixed' through a rule to send *97 to the Asterisk server?

    2) The hash key is not being seen as such by Asterisk. I can't see
    anything in the X5V's setup that might program this - any ideas?

    Thanks, as usual.

    Probably. You may be able to do it with a dialplan on the X5V [can't say,
    never used one myself], but it would make more sense to create exten=> 1571
    on the Asterisk server, thus making debugging much easier if things go
    wrong. Of course this presumes that 1571 isn't already a valid extension.
    It could be used internally by whatever Asterisk applications you're using,
