Ah , thank you very much :) but i've not got it to work just yet , i
am newbie....so a couple more questions if you dont mind...
basically , i have 1 incoming and 2 trucks......so i guess i need to
have two incoming , each with 1 trunk each ??
but based on the current incoming that has two trunks coming into it.
i went to "CID name prefix " and entered " bus" , i have a 0845
number and a std local number going into that one.
But my main question is :-
so for my private number i can just set up another incoming route ,
add a sip account etc.......but does that mean i need to log onto
pbxes twice , once for each route ? or just the once for both routes
sip really is great , the force cli part is a real helper :)
