Connect to PBX via FXS?

Unanswered Question
Oct 9th, 2008

Hi all,

I have a 2811 voice gateway with VIC2-4FXS/DID cards on it. The question is "Could I use these cards to connect to PBX (an old Panasonic PBX), and how to do it?"



I have this problem too.

Yes you can connect these ports with your FXO port at PBX. And you can make 4 calls maximum from gateway to PBX or vice-versa.

Yes I can.

What I mean is: should I use the ports as normal FXS or DIDs?

you can use FXS port as DID functionality. Use 'singnal did wink-start' in your FXS port configuration.

One more thing, You cannot place calls out a DID trunk, they can only receive inbound

calls. If you want to make a call outbound, you must have an FXO card

connected with. And, put the command 'incoming called number .' in the pots dial-peer to accept the calls for treatment. Configuration like:

At port

voice-port x/y/z

signal did wink-start {if your PBX using this}

At Dial-Peer

dial-peer voice 150 pots

incoming called-number .

port x/y/z

Hope this will work.
