[Freeswitch-users] Calling Multiple Destinations with Failover

While any use of loopback can be considered abuse, that is how I solve this
issue.  I use loopback for each dialed # and then in the dialplan use
mod_lcr to build a dialstring that does failover in order of cost.


 <action application="bridge"

 <action application="bridge"

In the dialplan you then match on those (just regular 10digit dialing) and
do your normal failover dialstring.  Again, I do this with mod_lcr but that
isn't necessary.

<action application="bridge" data="sofia/gw1/$1|sofia/gw2/$2..."/>
