I have a problem in a FXO to FXO connections.

I am using Cisco routers with VIC-4FXO and CUCM 6 with MGCP protocol.

This is a schematic view of my scenario:

[telephone A]________[PBX A]________[router A]________[router B]________[PBX B]________[telephone B]

All functions like disconnect supervision work fine except in case below:

When  station A calls station B, telephone B starts ringing. Before B answer  the call, station A disconnect the call BUT telephone B remains RINGING  continuously forever.

I also tried "timeouts wait-release" command, but it doesn't helped.

Any ideas???

Beside the main problem I tried to limit the maximum number of rings by "timeouts ringing" command, but doesn't worked. How can I limit it in router or CUCM?

Are you running a back to back FXO connection?  For example:


If so, this is your problem.  If you are running a back to back analog line, one end must be FXO, and the other must be FXS.
