    Is there an easy way to exclude a 10 digit number from an outbound rule so that it may be processed by another gateway? For example, an outbound rule using gateway1 is set to 416, therefore all numbers starting with 416 will use that gateway.

    However, say 4165551212 is desired to egress through gateway2, not gateway1.

    I suppose it is possible to do the following, set up separate rules for gateway1 as follows:
    4161
    4162
    4163
    4164
    4166
    4167
    4168
    4169
    4160
    41651
    41652
    41653
    41654
    41656
    41657
    41658
    41658
    41659
    41650
    416551
    etc, etc etc

    I figurerd out the answer. I set up a new outbound rule that considers 11 digits for the specific number I wish to call, a number whose nxx is already existing in another outbound rule. I added a 0 to the specific umber that I dial and then stripped off the first digit in the outbound rule. The 11 digit number that I dialled is then picked up by the new outbound rule. the irrelevant first digit stripped off, and the remaining 10 digits is then routed to the gateway I determined for egress. Yes!

    This is where having an access digit, like 9 + (10 digits), comes in handy. You can then use a second access digit, like 8, or 7, to force the same numbers through another outbound trunk.
