Connect DID to analog phone through VG224
Posted on 2009-02-11
We currently have 100 DIDs from our service provider. Most of these are used as direct lines for our users, and are forwarded to directory numbers through our callmanager. I would like to use some of these as analog fax lines if possible. I have added the translation patterns in the callmanager to convert the DID to a directory number. I then have the directory number attached to a fxs port (2/4) through our vg224 gateway. The vg224 is connected to a punchdown block with a 25 pair cable. I punched wires down from the block into a phone jack, and then connected a phone. Now, when I try to call the number, I get a fast busy signal. When I pick up the phone connected to the block, I get no dial tone, but it does show a call time when I do a sh voice call on the vg224. The strange this is that it shows the call on two ports (2/4 and 2/5). Any ideas?
Any help will be much appreciated.
