Re: Fax noice tone on ip phoness

Hi Ahmed,

There may be a problem for a single B channel.

To troubleshoot, I would go down, testing each b channel. Use "show voice call summary" to find out which channel you're on. If you have multiple active calls it will be harder, but "show call active voice brief" can help.

There are two methods to do this:

1) The easiest way is to place a call, test the channel, and place it on hold. The next call will be on the next available channel

2) Place a call, and when you've tested a channel use this command:

interface Serial0/0/0:23

isdn busy b_channel

When you have it determined down to see if it's a single b channel or not, it will be much easier to get the provider involved and find out if it's your equipment or the provider. I think there's a slightly better chance it's on the gateway.
