We currently have a Cisco CallManager Express implementataion with a 2811 router, 4 built-in FXS and 4 FXO ports, and (5) 7960 IP phones. We would like to use a standard cordless phone for manager only usage early in the morning.
We connected the phone to the first FXS port and are able to dial out and make calls properly as per the dial-peers that are already configured. We would like to configure this FXS port so this analog phone could function similar to an IP phone (answering incoming calls, possibly transfer and on-hold functions).
I've read the CCME admin guide and the guide on voice ports, but I'm having trouble with the solution. I understand that it needs to be configured as an ephone, but how do I configure the ephone to point to the FXS port? Or am I way off base?
Maybe I should clarify. This is a complete CME installed and working with 5 IP phones. People can call in and out with the IP phones, and everything works exactly like it should. I just want to give them the ability to use a cordless phone via the built in FXS port. If I plug in the analog phone to the FXS port, that phone can dial out according to the dial-peers already configured.
Now, I want to give them the ability to answer an incoming call. So basically, when a call comes in the FXO port, I want this analog phone connected to the FXS port to ring also...giving the user the ability to answer that phone if they aren't near an IP phone.
I hope that clears things up...Thanks for the help!
