    Hi,

    is it possible with skype connect and 3 cx to dial skype name from ip phone? Is it enough to configure Skype SIP trunk on 3cx and take an ip phone which supporting alpha numeric dialing? If not what do I need expect that?

    Thanks

    Others may have come up with another solution, but, this is what I've done. (This has come up a number of times in the past)

    You will soon realize that this is not a good solution if you are calling a lot of Skype user names.

    You create a short dial code in the outbound rules for each Skype name you wish to call (I told you it isn't great if you call a lot of people)...

    So, if you wanted to call john4457 at Skype, create a code that does not conflict with you current dialling plan.

    Dial 123, remove 3 digits, and replace with john4457, send out on the Skype trunk.

    You could use any number (or range) you want, as long as it does not conflict with other entries on the outbound rules.

    Create outbound rule

    prefix
    a,b,c,d, ... ,x,w,z,A,B,C,D, ... ,X,Y,Z

    ... - is other letters added using the pattern

    Then configure route it to external line which will understand this "number"
