Hi guys! So it's my first time posting here but I am doing so because I wondered if anyone out there in the vast world of Cisco could assist me? So basically, I bought a Cisco 7970g from eBay and I'm trying to get this connected to Sipgate Basic. I know this requires a form of Call Manager and I think I need to get a Cisco router and I can get a Cisco 867VAE from eBay also for a low cost.
So basically here are my questions:
• Will the Cisco 867VAE run Call Manager or Communications Manager, etc?
• How do I install the manager and is it free? (aka. no annoying contracts as I'm not a business I just find this an interesting hobby.)
• Can I connect the Cisco 867VAE Router to an ethernet switch instead of directly to a broadband line?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)
Oh also if anyone knows a way of connecting it to Sipgate Basic without a Cisco Call Manager then please pop a reply! :)
