How to add DN to the 2nd port on ATA186

I could add ATA to the CM by using its MAC address and the dial tone works on one port. How can I add a 2nd port and a DN? The ATA has only one MAC address.

Re: How to add DN to the 2nd port on ATA186

What you need to do is create another ATA device, copy the MAC address of the ATA, remove the first characters of the MAC and add 01 to the end. For example if your ATA device name is ATA000111222333 change it to ATA0011112222333301. This will do the trick!

If you have your ATA already plugged in you will see that the system assigns the Second DN a mac address as well. In the example above MAC:ATA0001112233 should appear for the second line as ATA0001112201

Do a Description search and in the Description select CONTAINS for the criteria... then, enter the first 5 digits of the MAC address.. This should bring up both ATA ports... Notice that the MAC for the second DN port will have a 01 appended to it automatically if you have Auto Registration enabled...
