I am in need of some assistance in clearing the fog I've created in my brain as it relates to configuring PLAR functionality within CME. I am under a timing constraint. The site where these lines normally ring has to be evacuated tomorrow due to construction.
There are two analog trunk lines (B1s) that when an analog phone is plugged into them, and the device goes off-hook (no digits dialed) our local 911 center answers. Similarly, if the 911 center goes off-hook on their end of these lines, it will ring the attached phones.
We've been asked to bring in our CME system, and replicate this functionality, within the next 12 hours.
The goal is to connect those lines to our existing CME via two available FXO ports. When calls come in, the system should answer and immediately ring an internal extension, which is an analog station. Similarly, we want to be able to go off-hook on one of those same analog stations, and ring the 911 center.
Might anyone have a configuration example (including fxo, fxs and dial peers) that would do this?
voice-port 0/1/2 is analog station 3, desired to be tied directly to voice-port 1/0/16 analog trunk 1 for two-way plar function.
voice-port 0/1/3 is analog station 4, desired to be tied directly to voice-port 1/0/17 analog trunk 2 for two-way plar function.
We are running IOS 12.4(15)XZ - ip voice. We attemped to configure stcapp for PLAR but with no success - spent nearly 6 hours trying to work through this along with making other preparations. I intended to provide a paste of our current, pertinent configuration, but forgot to capture it when I left the site this evening. I will provide the current config if needed, but I'll beg your indulgence to offer assistance with what limited info I've provided so far.
Prompt replies very MUCH appreciated, and I will gladly post what ultimately becomes the gold configuration in hopes that it may help someone else who suddenly needs to do this, as have been.
Thank you in advance!
