Noname to Kathy

I hope that nobody is counting the steps….

1)Asign a I.P. address, mask and default gateway to the unit.
The only way to do it is trought the console cable the first time. Once you have the I.P. address on the box, you could telnet into it.

2) Verify network conectivity. From the quintum prompt, type ping xxx.ccc.vvv.eee, with a valid I.P. address.
You should be able to ping the outside world and the outside world should be able to ping your unit.

3) Setup the codec of the unit. Only one codec per box.
Get the codec that your provider uses, and enter into the box.
config# dsp
config dsp# voicecoding 68 (that is g729)
config dsp# exit
config# submit

4)Next you need to setup a static route to your provider gateway.
You need the I.P. of your provider and the port that they use (normally 1720)

config# be
config be# sr 20 ( or any other number up to 160 I think)
config be sr 20# callsig 123.321.342.123:1720 Replace the nonsense numbers with the I.P. of your provider.

config be sr 20# dn 1 * 0 1 1
config be sr 20# exit
config be# exit
config# submit.

Now, for the final trick, type the following from the quintum prompt:

gk route 1212555121

You are asking the gateway what will it do in case that there is a call to this number in New York.
If the gateway is ready to pass calls, it will respond with the I.P. address of the provider.

If not, check the following, in this order:

On the “border element I.P.” field
of the gateway, you should have your very own I.P. address.

It is under “gksys”
command is :
config# gksys
config gksys# border 0 (put your own I.P.)

On the gatekeeper field, under “h323 gateway ” should be all zeros.

Last step: Put the unit “online”

config# unit 1
config unit 1# online 1

Verify by requesting a config, print.

That is in a nutshell the basic steps.

May be some other settings , like area code and international codes, but to make only outgoing calls , dialing the american way (011 for international), it should work O.K.

Or send the config to the email and I will correct and reply over the weekend.

Best regards.

With that you are creating a sr to the provider, that indicates that any number dialed by your gateway (*), will be routed to the provider as a public call
