I have an ALTIGEN 5.0 phone system with IP extensions only. So I want to use the ATA 186 and hook up a fax machine.
I bought an ATA from CISCO and got the H323 image loaded but now i am stuck. I have no clue how to configure the zillion parameters so the altigen system recognizes the device. Altigen support have not been much help.
I am in the same boat. I don't have the Altigen VoIP card installed yet, but I am gearing up for it. The technician is installing the card tomorrow. I have 2 Cisco ATA 186 boxes ready to configure.
So far I have configured the two boxes with the latest h.323 image (3.1.2) and assigned static IP addresses (for testing). I then went into the config page (http://ww.xx.yy.zz/dev) and set the UID0 field as 4000 on one box, and 4001 on the other. I am able to call the other phone directly using the following syntax: 4001**w*x*y*z# where wxyz represents the ip address.
The next step is to configure the boxes to register with the altigen server as the gatekeeper and gateway.
Hope this helps. Share your experiences too! I am still working on this.
