I’m on my first setup of Asterisk/Elastix and it is awesome. I never knew the power of this system until I really starting digging around and learning it.
So, enter the me and my new task… install a new phone system as economically as possible while maintaining quality. Gee boss, ok…
I’m running Elastix 2.5.0 and I have a TDM410P 4 port FXO working perfectly in and out using Cisco 7961G phones - 5 of them.
We have a paging system that is self amplified running off of an old Meridian system now so I’m wondering the best method of paging. I see lots of articles about paging through the sound card and through FXO ports.
I’m currently trying to figure out the FXO port but I cannot figure out how to tell it to always use PORT4 for paging and ports 1-3 for phones (we only have 3 lines now).
Also, do I just crimp an RJ11 connector straight to the paging amplifier for output?
I know I can use a burn phone and wire the speaker to the paging system and set it to auto answer but I’m trying to save a phone.
