Adding an FXO gateway (auto-discovered)

The FortiVoice phone system can auto-discover an FXO gateway when they are on the same LAN. With an auto-discovered device, you can create a new configuration for that gateway or replace an existing gateway configuration.

Procedure steps

  2. Go to Managed System > Gateway.
  3. In the FXO Gateway tab, click Unmanaged Gateway.
  4. The dialog opens and displays all the gateways discovered on the LAN of the FortiVoice phone system.

  5. Select the FXO gateway that you want to add.
  6. In the Actions drop-down list, select one of the following actions:
    • Create New Device to add the gateway as a new entry into the FortiVoice phone system. Go to step 6.
    • Replace Existing Device to choose which gateway to replace. You can use this option in a situation where, for example, you want to replace a defective gateway. Go to step 9.
