Help with configuring E1 card on 2811 router

I have been at this for about a couple of days now but not making much progress.

I have a 2811 base router, upgraded the IOS to 12.4(24)T, I have a HWIC-2CE1T1-PRI card installed where the E1 line is terminated on the first port.

I want to configure the router to receive calls from the E1 line and forward them to a SIP server, the router then acting as a SIP gateway.

This is my first time of trying this type of setup config and hence would appreciate any pointer (specifics) that may be of help.

Please note that no Call Manager software is installed, and the router also came with a base IOS, which has been upgraded to the advanced ipservices IOS.

The HWIC-2CE1T1-PRI is not voice capable. It is designed for ISDN data calls, generally for terminating PPP dial applications.

For voice operations, you will need a VWIC-2MFT-E1 or VWIC2-2MFT-E1T1.
