I have an Ortronics Cat 5 patch panel... I want to distribute simple analog phone signal through a few patch ports.  I have a thought to connect just the orange and green feed from the telco to two points for each patch.  and then just plug in a rj11 to the patch panel.  what I need to know is what two slots in the back orange/white orange or green/white green do I put the orange and green feed into so that it will correspond to the proper terminals in the regular rj11 jack.

Any help would be appreciated.
