I have configured my cisco 2811 as an mgcp gateway. It has 4 fxs ports on it, I also configured them. It will connect to another non-ip telephony-system from these fxs ports. When our users will call 1111 they have to reach the other system. But is it ok to give these fxs with the same dn or shouldnt I give any dn to these ports ? How to forward if one fxs is busy to the second fxs?

Also can I ask what Unattended Port port means ? And attendant dn?

Unattended Port is used for out of dialog REFER processing.

Configuring an attendant DN is to indicate where incoming calls need to be forwarded since the VIC-FXO card is not a direct inward dial (DID) card.
