3.3. Connect your PBX to the VIP
VIP units can collect data via cable from up to three local PBX units, and
can also collect data via network connection to a remote PBX unit. PollCat
NetLink-VIP units provide three PBX input ports for cable connection to
local PBX units, and NLJ-VIP units provide one PBX input port for cable
connection to a local PBX unit. Both VIP models include one PBX IP Input
port to allow data to be collected via network.
• Connecting a PBX to the VIP PBX Input Port: Use an appropriate
data cable to connect your PBX SMDR port to the VIP's 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 VIP’s PBX Input
Port interface, please refer to Appendix B. Section 5.4.1 describes the
procedure for conﬁguring the PBX input port(s).
• 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 VIP unit (deﬁned in Step 2a
in Section 3.2.2.) In the default conﬁguration, the VIP will receive
data via port number 9000. Section 5.4.6 describes the procedure for
conﬁguring the PBX IP port.
This completes the Quick Start Guide for the VIP. 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 procedures.

Customer Support as described in Appendix E.
