Essentially, I'm trying to extend a analog line from a Nortel PABX across a data network to a slightly out of reach phone.
I have 2 routers (2801) equipped with FXO and FXS cards each. I want to extend a analog line (RJ11) from the PABX to the router with the FXO card and from that router to another router with a FXS card, and from there, to a POTS phone. The PABX would provide an extension to the phone, and would route calls to that extension to the connected port on the router. On the other hand, the router with the FXS card would capture whatever number the phone dials and just pass it straight alot to the PABX.
Is this possible? I've been reading reference material all week trying to figure it out.
Can you post the rest of your config? What POTS destination pattern are you using on the other router. Is that the same as your PLAR target?
One suggestion would be to make your VOIP destination pattern non-overlapping with the POTS. As an example if you used 3888 on the other router change your pattern to 38..
