I am having a lot of problems setting up a VWIC BRI in a Cisco 1861 that is connected BRI in Malta. As I am working on this remotely I am having a lot of difficulty getting information to configure this.
The ISDN's will be under MGCP control; however when I carry out a âshow ISDN statusâ the layer 1 is showing as DEACTIVATED. If possible please could someone give me some guidance on the general setup.
Many thanks in advance
That is normal, then when an in or out calls happens, the BRI becomes fully activated. Remember to configure "isdn tei-negotiation preserve" under bri interface.
Also, for added stability and ease of troubleshooting, recommend you use the port in h.323 mode.
