How do I configure Patton ISDN VOIP Gateways for a Point-to-Point Connection?

This article applies to ISDN lines and ISDN gateways only.

An ISDN line can either be point-to-point or point-to-multipoint. If you have a point-to-point connection, you can only attach one device to your ISDN line. If you have point-to-multipoint connection you can attach more than one device.

You have to configure the ISDN lines connected to the Patton to be either point-to-point or point-to-multipoint depending on how your ISDN lines are configured by the Telecoms provider.
