Its more that the "user" on Kamailio is actually a PBX with extensions on it.
On asterisk I'd usually do Dial(SIP/peername/extension) but I obviously cant do this as Kamailio is the peer that the call is being routed to initially.
What I need to figure out is how to on kamailo maybe using a dial prefix specify that the call is going to a remote extension on a "user" and rewrite the to header to be ***@useripaddress rather than ***@useripaddress.

Thanks for the quick response. I already do use some Kamailio
features on our internal network for load balancing.
The use case that I'm interested in is to effectively replace an
asterisk server that I use for SIP trunking to remote phone systems
with a Kamailio registrar/proxy and a bank of asterisk servers placing
calls direct to extensions on the remote PBX.
I currently have this running on asterisk which I route to the
different remote PBX extensions using prefix based routing down to the
destination peer on asterisk which is essentially what I need to
replicate on Kamailio.
remotepbx1 maybe defined as either by IP address or via a "normal"
registered sip peer with a username/password combo.
I understand that I can dial a registered device directly but its how
to call a remote extension on a registered device via Kamailio.
Thanks Kenny Watson

This depends on the carriers and scenarios that you may use. I know
"depends" is a horrible answer, but one of the great aspects of
Kamailio is the flexibility of the modules.
Some deployments may have a group of Asterisk servers all configured
similarly for handling calls. With this type of scenario, you would
benefit from using the dispatcher module.
Many people like to use Kamailio on the public side of their network
and keep their asterisk servers on the private. This would be an
example of when to use rtpproxy (in bridge mode).
Some carriers hate seeing the chain of systems on your network (ie the
asterisk boxes). Sometimes the use of TOPOH helps to integrate with
the carriers who have chosen their own "interpretations" of RFC for
And there's more...
The bottom line, is that the devil is in the details.

I have a few asterisk servers providing some basic SIP trunking and routing.
We have remote PBXs trunked onto asterisk which calls come into
asterisk and are routing down to extensions on the remote PBX via
I'm looking to have a central Kamailio Registrar/Proxy/Loadbalancer
which Invites come into and are routed out to either SIP phones which
are registered or to the remote PBX.
I'm looking for some advice as to which modules would be best to use
to achieve this as the remote PBXs will be dynamically registered
rather than fixed gateways.
Please let me know what further information would be helpful.
