inbound FXO calls ring intermittently and cant be answered
Im having an issue Id like to get your opinions on:
I have a United States analog line coming into an FXO port on a cisco 2911. The line is PLAR'ed to a single extension on our system (# changed to protect the innocent). (Normally it is pointed to a shared line but I pointed it to a single line for testing simplicity) When a call rings in on this line, the caller (me on my cell phone) hears normal Ringing. However on the extension end, the extension receives intermittent, half or less-cycle ringing, with the display breifly flashing unknown caller (for a second or less). When the extension attempts to answer the call by picking up, or hitting line button - I just get dial-tone while the cell phone call continues to ring.
I even tried setting the extension to auto-answer but with no difference.
The port is configured:
voice-port 0/1/0 trunk-group PSTN no battery-reversal timeouts interdigit 2 connection plar +15553473080 description *** FXO Line *** caller-id enable
Ive compared the port configuration, gateway sip trunk configuration, and over-all router configuration with another router in our system and didnt find anything startling.
Ive tried doing 'battery-reversal' and 'no battery reversal' Ive tried switching from loop-start to ground-start and, of course, I tried a 'shut' and 'no-shut' on the port
none of these made any difference whatever.
The port does not normally carry normal outbound calls (its a backup 911 line) so I havent tried pushing a call out of it.
I am hundreds of miles from the site, so cannot try just plugging an analog phone into the phone line.
I can see calls hitting the router and port. Ive tried running 'debug vpm' and 'ccapi inout' but frankly am not the greatest at reading those debugs. I'll attach/include a debug vpm, since its probably the more pertinant of the 2.
Does anyone recognize these symptoms or have any suggestions of additional things to try? Am/Could I just be looking at a physical problem (telco line problem, bad port problem, bad demarc to router wiring/cross-connect?
