Editing a trunk profile for an FXO gateway

The FortiVoice phone system automatically creates a trunk profile when you add an FXO gateway. By default, all eight ports are mapped to a single trunk. However, you can reassign the ports to multiple trunks, if required. For example, four trunks can have two ports each. If you want to edit the trunk profile, perform this procedure.

Procedure steps

  1. In the web-based manager of the FortiVoice phone system, go to Trunks > Gateway.
  2. Double-click the trunk profile that you want to edit.
  3. You can edit the following settings:

    GUI field

    Description

    Enabled

    To activate this trunk profile, select this option.

    Display name

    Not required. You can leave this field empty.

    Main number

    Not required. You can leave this field empty.

    If you want, you can add a main number for reference. For example, you can use the number assigned by your service provider to identify a group of analog lines.

    Mapped FXO ports

    The port numbers included in this profile.

    For a port range, enter the starting and ending ports separated by a dash. For separate ports, use a comma. For example, 1-4,6.

    The default is 1-8.

    Gateway device

    The device type for this profile.

    Gateway SIP address

    The SIP address of the gateway.

    Gateway SIP port

    The SIP port of the gateway.

    Caller ID modification

    Optionally, select the caller ID modification configuration. This choice changes the phone number, caller name, or both that display on the destination phone.

    For more details, see the Modifying caller IDs section in the FortiVoice Phone System Administration Guide.

    Relay fax

    Caution

    If you select this option, then you must create a trunk profile for a dedicated fax line (see Creating an additional trunk profile for an FXO gateway). Without this dedicated fax line, all lines will be used to receive and send faxes.

    Select to allow this FXO gateway to receive and send faxes.

    Off hook only

    If the managed FXO gateway is connected to a third-party paging system, you can select this option to keep the gateway off hook without dialing any digits and allow users to enter dual-tone multi-frequency (DTMF) digits.

    Description

    Optionally, add notes for this trunk profile.

  4. To save changes, click OK.
  5. Send the configuration changes to the FXO gateway by following the instructions in Applying the FXO gateway configuration.
