New Gateway Feature - Toll-Fraud Prevention in IOS 15.1(2)T

This post is a big warning for anyone upgrading a voice gateway to 15.1(2)T or later.  Without additional configuration, all inbound VoIP call setups will be blocked after the upgrade.  Yup.  Blocked.  Additionally, two-stage dialing is no longer enabled by default.

Per Cisco's explanation of the new Toll-Fraud Prevention Feature, a "trusted list" must be configured on the voice gateway so that the sources generating the VoIP call setups will be accepted.

Note:  If you have "session target" defined within dial-peers that you currently use, those calls will be accepted even if no "trusted list" is defined.

Debug Example - Blocked Call

Disable Toll-Fraud Prevention Feature

If you need to quickly return your router to it's previous functionality after an upgrade, take one of these two paths:
  1. Configure the router to accept incoming call setups from all source IP addresses.
    voice service voip
     ip address trusted list
  2. Disable the toll-fraud prevention application completely.
    voice service voip
     no ip address trusted authenticate

Restore Two-Stage Dialing After Upgrade

If two-stage dialing is required, the following can be configured to return behavior to match previous releases.

For inbound ISDN calls:
voice service pots
 no direct-inward-dial isdn
For inbound FXO calls:
voice-port <fxo-port>
 secondary dialtone
