Is it possible to make a test call from FXO port to test the connectivity to of the PORT to the Voice service provide switch is working or not?

There is no configuration on the router can we make such a test call?

Similar to bri  isdn test call.

What is the minimum configuration required to make a test call on the router?

If we connect ths POTS-RJ11 connnector handset to the line we are able to make and receive voice call like a simple home phone. (POTS)

Please share the experience.

Thanks in advance

You can use 'csim start xxx' where xxx is the number you want to dial. It's a hidden command...

If configured correctly the far end will ring but if picked up you won't hear anything.
