Creating an additional trunk profile for an FXO gateway

An FXO gateway has eight FXO ports. By default, all eight ports are mapped to a single trunk. However, you can reassign the ports to multiple trunks, if required. For example, you can create four trunks with two ports each. If you want to create an additional trunk profile for an FXO gateway, perform this procedure.

Prerequisite

Note

Before adding any port to a trunk, reduce the port number in the default trunk accordingly. For details about how to edit a trunk profile, see Editing a trunk profile for an FXO gateway.

Procedure steps

  1. In the web-based manager of the FortiVoice phone system, go to Trunks > Gateways.
  2. Click New.
  3. Configure the following settings:

    GUI field

    Description

    Trunk gateway

    Enter a unique name for this trunk profile.

    Enabled

    To activate this trunk profile, select this option.

    Type

    Select FXO.

    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

    Select the device type for this profile.

    Gateway SIP address

    Enter the SIP address of the gateway.

    Gateway SIP port

    Relay fax

    Caution

    If you select this option, then you must create a trunk profile for a dedicated fax line. 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 Create.
  5. Send the configuration changes to the FXO gateway by following the instructions in Applying the FXO gateway configuration.
