    All,

    I have setup a Patton SmartNode 4638 BRI 5-ports to connect to 4 x ISDN 2e boxes, and they work fine.

    I would like however, to use the 5th available port, and as it happens I have a spare ISDN 2e box with a 10 range DDI associated to it.

    However, following the setup guide by 3CX http://www.3cx.com/voip-gateways/smartnode-isdn.html It explicitly states:

    I have logged into the Patton device and can see that this port is disabled.

    Is there any reason why I can't use this ? I am going to enable it, but thought I'd ask in case there are things I need to be aware off!

    Thanks,

    Lewis

    I have only used the PRI devices from the IAD, But I would like to think the setup is similar just with different interfaces.

    3CX Allows you to create a config file that can be uploaded to the device, The config file that is created is specifically for use with 3CX. It will switch the INT_0 / INT_1 as the primary interface, and configure the voice settings, but other then that it seems to work like a charm. I would see no problem in using the 5th port to add a bridge to another Patton device or set it up as another Gateway. I'm just not sure how you would configure that particular device to do that.
