Quote from: Kaizer on May 17, 2011, 10:37:59 PMA remote Obi in China is added to my circle of trust (Obi USA). For the remote, I've set up speed dial 8 as the Obi USA. Works great. Remobe Obi, dials 8*plus us number#. However when I call from US Obi to remote Obi, I am not getting the AA. I want to access the AA to make a remote Obi LINE call out. At first I thought the problem was LINE port was not connected yet. However, with ObiON login as the remote Obi, dialing into the remote Obi from ObiON gets the AA. Ofc trying to call out gets the error message "there is no service" as the LINE port is not connected yet. What am I doing wrong?

Quote from: jimates on March 16, 2011, 08:21:46 PMI got it working right.The circle of trust doesn't work both ways. I assumed that belonging to the circle created equal access for both parties, it doesn't.If I invited Obi #2 and they accepted, then Obi #2 was added to my call route and could place direct calls through me. But I was not added to their call route. Obi #2 invited me to their circle and I accepted. Then my number was added to their call route and I was able to direct dial through Obi #2.
Quote from: MichiganTelephone on March 18, 2011, 05:38:37 AMAs I noted in the other thread, there may be situations where you want to give someone access to a "Circle of Trust" without necessarily having reciprocity. But also, would you want just any random users to be able to add themselves to your CoT just by adding you to theirs? If that were allowed, you might be real surprised to find out who's using your phone service and where they are calling! So, just because you give someone access to your CoT, it doesn't follow that you get access to theirs.

Quote from: Cruize on May 19, 2011, 02:25:12 AMWhy use 2 OBis in the process?? Just connect directly to GV with the OBi outside of the US. Works perfectly and probably better than having the call go though 2 OBis first.

Quote from: Cruize on May 20, 2011, 11:43:30 PMQuotePlenty have reported no being able to access services such as google voice, google chat in gmail, etc.That is true, but yet I am almost 100% confident that it will work in most places using the OBi.If I log into my Gmail account from outside the US I don't have the ability to use google voice unless I do a little trick which doesn't involve any kind of proxy. Unfortunately if I post the little trick on a public website it will probably no longer be available.So Google seems to try to avoid access to the webpart, but not the actual service.
Quote from: jimates on May 20, 2011, 01:57:37 PMaccording to google, google voice service is not available outside the US. Some have reported being able to use google services even though it isn't suppose to work.Plenty have reported no being able to access services such as google voice, google chat in gmail, etc.So it is a YMMV, that is why we don't tell people it will work.
