3.4. Connect your PBX to the NetLink II
The NetLink II can collect data from both a local PBX unit, connected by
cable directly to the PBX Input Port and from a second RSP compatible
PBX unit (PBX-IP) that communicates with the NetLink via an IP
connection to the NetLink’s Ethernet port.
• Connecting a PBX to the NetLink II PBX Input Port: Use an
appropriate data cable to connect your PBX SMDR port to the
NetLink II PBX Input Port. The serial PBX Input Port is a male, DB9
connector, wired in a DTE conﬁguration. The type of cable used will
vary, depending on the conﬁguration of your PBX. For a description
of NetLink’s PBX Input Port interface, please refer to Appendix B.
• Connecting to a PBX via the Network Port (PBX-IP Port): Refer
to your PBX user’s guide, and then conﬁgure your RSP compatible
PBX to send data to the IP address for the NetLink II unit (deﬁned in
Step 2a in Section 3.3.2.) In the default conﬁguration, the NetLink II
will receive data via port number 9000.
This completes the Quick Start Guide for the NetLink II. Prior to placing
the unit into operation, it is recommended to refer to the remainder of
this User's Guide for complete installation, conﬁguration and operation
