does anyone know is it possible to use a VIC2-4FXO to connect to a normal analogue phone somehow?

I have this problem too.

FXO ports are only for CO trunks to be connected to the system. They do not generate voltage, they expect to receive it from the phone system. There's a myriad of additional technical details that can be added for a better explanation, but basically FXO ports are for connections to the Telco, and FXS ports are for connecting analog devices to the system.

Hope this helps,
