Confused about something...
To quote one of the Cisco study books:
"When you are using FXO and FXS ports to set up connections to a PBX it is important to remember that FXS ports SEND caller ID and FXO ports RECEIVE caller ID. Because of this relationship caller ID is sent only one way when used on this type of connection - from FXS to FXO"
Now the quote above refers to PBX's but I am presuming the same rule applies with any FXO port on a voice gateway RECEIVING caller ID info FROM a FXS port on a Telco switch.
I understand you use the "station-id" command to configure a station name and number for Caller ID purposes.
What doesn't make sense to me it that on my 2801's this option can seemingly be configured on both FXS... AND FXO ports.
My question is why is it an option on FXO ports?? I can understand it being an option with the FXS ports because the SEND it out but if FXO ports only ever RECEIVE the information why would you ever need to configure the "station-id" command on an FXO port?
No doubt I'm missing something here but any help would be appreciated.
