I’m attempting to connect an FXS port to our existing analog 1 zone paging system.
Here’s where I’m at…
FXS port out to amplifier. Created a DAHDI extension 500 that uses that FXS port. Also created a paging group 502 that includes only extension 500. When I call extension 500, it just rings. The intercom actually plays the ringing, followed by some old AOL type computer speak. When I call 502, I get a beep as if you can make your announcement. Ringing plays over the intercom still.
Do I need a paging gateway? I was hoping I could set the 500 extension to auto-answer, and then the paging system would magically work. However, auto-answer doesn’t do anything…just ringing, which then plays over the intercom. Please advise. If I need a paging gateway, I’ll get one, but I’m surprised the ringing plays over the intercom.
Thank you for any and all assistance.
