Connection to power supply (old models without PoE)

Connect the FXS gateway using the power supply and the cable provided with the gateway, as it is shown on the picture.

Connection to Ethernet

The gateway has one LAN port configured in Bridge mode and one WAN port set up as a DHCP Client. Connect one of two ports to the same network as the PBX or an external DHCP server (for instance, its router) as shown on the picture.

As soon as the DHCP server assigns an IP address to the gateway, you can pass to the next step of the gateway configuration.

  • In case the PBX is used as a DHCP server, the gateway is detected on the network automatically
  • In case an external DHCP server is used, check the list of the active leases to detect the IP address assigned to the gateway

Connection to the line

FXS gateways have 1 or 4 ports (depending on the model) on the rear panel, marked as Phone1-Phone4. Connect the ports to the analog phones.

Provisioning of the gateway

Follow our online guide to provision the gateway.

For remote/unreachable media gateways behind NAT/Firewall, follow our online guide to remote provisioning.

Assign analog ports

Follow our online guide to assign the analog ports of the FXS gateway: https://manuals.wildix.com/wms-start-guide/ (Chapter 7.3)

Reset of the gateway

In case you need to reconfigure the FXS gateway, you should perform a reset procedure, as shown on the picture. The switch marked as “Reset/Default” is situated on the rear panel of the gateway.

  • use the paper clip or the object of the similar shape to press the button
  • keep the button pressed for 5 seconds
  • when the LED Status turns on, the reset of the gateway is complete
