    Hi everybody,

    I want to install 3CX for home use and actually have a GrandStream HT-386 for using my internet connection to make VOIP calls (Thanks VoipBuster for the free price of telecoms to landline ;=) ).

    As I plan to allow each member of home to have it's private extension, 3cx seems to be verry attractive.

    I want to know if it will be possible to use 3cx for "normal" calls (VOIP) and use the HT386 as a "PSTN" line "backup" service.
    Also, the actual incomming calls came from the PSTN line on the HT-386 and are redirected to a wireless phone.

    So, is it possible to keep this configuration and how to declare this in 3CX.
    (normal incomming calls from PSTN through HT-386 to wireless phone, normal outgoing call in VOIP through VoipBuster, and PSTN outgoing calls through the HT-386 to the telco provider.)

    Thanks for the informations (config of 3cx, HT-386)

    Kind regards

    Oli.

    Grandstream

    Hi,

    if the device you are referring to is a normal FXO device, then its possible to have this setup. The Grandstream acts then as a normal VOIP Gateway. PLease see the manual how to configure your system.

    Grandstream HT386

    Hi,

    Thanks for the answer.

    The HT386 has 2 FXS ports and no FXO ports.

    Is it still possible to do what I want ?

    You need FXO

    Hi,

    To connect a PSTN line you will need an FXO device. FXS is of no use to you.
