The difference between them is, one provides Dial tone (FXS) and one requires Dial tone (FXO).

In the simplest sense you connect a "regular phone" to the FXS card and a "phone line" to the FXO card.

To use them in the 2600 you need an NM-2V or NM-1V

The VIC-2FXS is a station device and can provide loopstart and ground start service to a analog phone device. It will give you dialtone.

The VIC-2FXO is a office card. IT is meant to provide a telco office type conenction. This is used to forward digits out to telphony networks. It will not give you dialtone. They cannot be used in a WIC slot of 2600, they can be used in a VIC slot. The 2600 would require a NM-2V, or NM-1V in order for these modules to work properly.
