Hello and thank you for posting to our forum!!!

If you want an FXS port to dial when it goes offhook, you can use the hotline command from the voice user/user account.  For example:

voice user 8001

  connect fxs 0/1

  first-name "Lobby"

  last-name "Phone"

  hotline 2565551000

With this configuration, when the person at ext 8001 goes offhook, the port will dial the number 256-555-1000.

Let us know if you have any questions or if this is not the type of setting you were looking for.

Regards,

Geoff

I may be mistaken but I do not believe the TA916 will do this.

Depending on the requirements for this project you may want to register a SIP ATA that has this functionality or phone directly to the TA916.

I will do that. One last question, do you know what software rev is required for that, because my tech is saying that option is not available?

Thanks,

It looks like you are correct.

I tried the following on firmware version A4.11.00.

(config)#voice user 8001

Configuring New User "8001".

(config-8001)#connect fxs 0/1

(config-8001)#first-name "test"

(config-8001)#last-name "test2"

(config-8001)#hotline xxxxxxxxxx

%----------------------------^

Error: Hotline number does not match a dial plan entry.

Hello guys,

There needs to be a dial-plan entry that matches the number in the hotline.  For example:

hotline 256-555-1000

voice dial-plan 5 long-distance NXX-NXX-XXXX

hotline 8005

voice dial-plan 3 extensions 8XXX

hotline 5559009

voice dial-plan 4 long-distance NXX-XXXX

Basically, the hotline number has to fit into a dial-plan entry.

Regards,

Geoff

I for got about that.

Yes that did it.

(config)#voice dial-plan 5 long-distance NXX-NXX-XXXX

(config)#voice user 8001

Configuring Existing User "8001".

(config-8001)#connect fxs 0/1

(config-8001)#hotline 2565551000

Thank you,
