Right, all you have to do is give the port an IP address, whether its from DHCP (not reccomended by me) or statically assigned. After the port has an IP address and it is connected (whether to telco or another PBX or simply with a hard loop) you can configure it in CM. The reason I say connected is that the port may not register until it is connected. If you don't have a T1 to plug into it you can use an RJ45 end with pin 1 connected to pin 4 and pin 2 connected to pin 5 (loopback plug). In CM, just go to add a gateway and select the appropriate gateway. Below is the configuration off one of my 6608s:
set port voice interface 8/1 dhcp disable x.x.x.x/x.x.x.x vlan 1 tftp x.x.x.x gateway x.x.x.x
Thanks. This is good . Even simpler than config in router in terms of MGCP.
I still got two questions here: Is the ip address here is to comunicate with CCM only? So it can be the same network as CCM if they are in the same VLAN?
In order to setup CCM do I have to know which PRI switch the 6608 is connected to? The reason I am asking this is because I saw couple example talking about how configure CCM when 6608 is connecting to differnent type of PBX. In my case, 6608 is connectd to PSTN PRI.
The IP address is used to communicate with CM and other VoIP devices, i.e. phones, other gw's. etc. When you have a phone call the RTP stream is between the phone and the gateway, not the phone and CM. Therefore, each phone needs to have IP access to the gateway(s).
Yes, the gateway and the CM can be on the same network if so desired.
Yes, you do need to know the protocol of the switch you are connecting to. Is it DMS-100, 5E8, etc? Your telephone company can help you determine some of the settings for the PRI... Hoewever, sometimes telco is not helpful. In that case trial and error may be the way to go.
I would recomend a traditional telecom person to help get you started. They will be able to help you configure some of the traditional telecomm settings...

The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
