PROBLEM

Some systems have been in service for so long that the user may not know how their T1 was originally provisioned, or they need to reset their legacy Brooktrout T1 card to their T1 settings. It is often neccesary to contact your T1 provider and fully understand what settings are needed for the T1.

SOLUTION


A lot of T1 Configurations do not work with the shipping digital.cfg file settings. What does seem to work in most cases is the following.
#MVIP/PEB, u-Law/A-Law, Robbed bit/Disabled, Clock rate 1.544/2.048MHz, Signal protocol, MF Freq.
110100
<change these values to match your T1>
MVIP/PEB boards (First Digit)
110100
0=PEB; 1=MVIP
SCBUS Boards:
0=PEB; 1=SCSA
Law (Second Digit) 1
10100
0=A-Law coding (Europe); 1=u-Law coding (US)
Robbed bit (Third Digit) 11
0100
0=Disabled; 1=Enabled
0 required for MVIP and ignore for SCBUS
Clock_rate (Forth Digit) 110
100
For MVIP/PEB boards:
0=1.544 Mhz; 1=2.048MHz For MVIP use 1 (2.048MHz)
For SCBUS boards:
SCSA: 1-2.048MHz; 2=4.096MHz; 3=8.192MHz (3 (8.192MHz applies to backplaned based SCBUS boards only)
PEB: 0=1.544 Mhz; 1=2.048MHz
Sig_prot (Fifth Digit) 1101
00
0=E&M Wink start
1=E&M Immediate start
2=FXS, LOOP START MODE
3=FXO, LOOP START MODE
4=Exchange Access North America
5=Exchange Access Internation lignaling
6=Operator serivice Signaling
7=Terminiating Protocol
Ignored for SCBUSS
mf_freq (Sixth Digit) 11010
0
This value is required and must be set to 0 for MVIP
Ignored for SCBUS
Setting Channels (or Ports)
The rest of the lines contain: channel, tstream, tslot,, (rstream, rslot) (Each line is a channel (or port)
06060 - Channel 1
16161 - Channel 2
26262 - Channel 3
36363 - Channel 4
46464 - Channel 5 <remove if only 4 ports>
56565 - Channel 6 <remove if only 4 ports>
66666 - Channel 7 <remove if only 4 ports>
76767 - Channel 8 <remove if only 4 ports>
...add if more than 8 ports
If less than 8 ports, remove 46464 - 76767. If more than add 86868 on up in sequence.
This must be done before running re-detect fax devices and before loading the fax server, or the server will not load.
