    Hi

    We need to install 2 3CX systems in Bridged mode and the configuration and requirement is as below

    Location A 3CX master with PRI
    Location B 3CX slave with only extensions

    When Caller from slave 3CX needs to make a call to the outside world, they would need to use the PRI in the master to acheive the same

    When a outsider calls into a certain number in the PRI of the Master the calls have to be routed to the extensions in the Slave 3CX

    Is it possible to configure it as above and how can we acheive the same

    Depending on the size or other requirements (survivability?) at the remote site, since you don't have any "local" trunking there... you might want to explore the use of the 3CX Proxy Server at that site. Then all extensions would be working from one 3CX installation.

    The drawback, and something to keep in mind if the remote installation is located a great distance, is, emergency calls. Any 911/112 (or other) emergency call will show (at emergency services) as the address of the PRI at the "main" installation unless you have arranged a separate trunk registered to the remote locations address reserved for emergency calls from the remote site.

    Yes. It is possible.

    For outbound calls on the slave side simply create an outbound rule that sends calls to the bridge. The number dialed at the slave side would then be processed by the outbound rules on the master side.

    For Inbound calls setup a DID - Inbound rule on the master to "Forward to Outside Number". The outside number would be an extension or access code + extension on the slave side. The master side outbound rules will process the number and send the call to the bridge. Of course you could send the call to an extension, ring group, queue or digital receptionist on the slave side using this process.
