First of all I have both Cisco and Vocaltec in my netowrk.
About VTGW 8 (the analog gateway with 4/8 ports FXO/FXS).
It’s very odd device. The first versions ware very bad … the administration was beeing made via telnet only (two telnet sessions actualy – one to send the commands and one to see the log).
Now they have web interface.
Then – about the tones – I had very hard time configuring the tones, compared to PC based analog gateway from Vocaltec.
And about cisco and if it is for small networks – … can you tell me what small network should have 8 E1 lines? hmmm Cisco 5350 was made to serve a purpose wasn’t it?
