I recently installed a RT-328 on my PacBell NI-1 ISDN line, served by a
My previous line configuration was for a IBM 7845 NT-1 Extended. In
addition to the 2 primary directory numbers, I had a third directory
number which "rang" on an EKTS key - the 7845 saw that as an additional
call on the B1 channel, and put the call out on the POTS port with a
distinctive ring. I want to keep that 3rd directory number, since many
people have it as my FAX number.
I know that the RT328 won't provide the "distinctive ring" feature, but
I can't even get it to ANSWER the additional DN. I had PacBell set up
the line with EKTS on, and the additional DN rings on (arbitrarily
chosen) key 8. When I dial that number from another phone, I hear (on
the calling line): one ring, then a fast busy. On the RT328, the B1
light flashes twice, but there is no ring on the POTS port.
How can I configure the RT328 and the line so that the additional DN
rings one of the POTS ports???
