Hi total Noob here so please bear with,
I have a office at the bottom of my garden. It has a Snom 320 phone all setup and running with a company called VoIPfone. Don’t let that fool you that I know anything much about VoIP.
I would like to connect the analogue phone in the house to office so that I can answer calls to the house and also call the house or it call me eg: Lunch is ready!"
I was thinking that a HT831 would fit the bill.
The FXO port would connect to the BT phone line and the FXS port to the phone handset in the house.
1: As far as the house is concerned can I make the FXO port transparent to the FXS port such that the analoge phone behaves as it did before introducing the HT831?
Have a second account set up on the Office phone connecting me to the HT831. I have no voice server of any kind so I guess that would be a peer-to-peer connection?
2: Be able to answer incomming calls to the house from the office
3: Be able to call the phone in the house
4: Use the phone in the house to call the garden office.
Loads of questions I know but does the idea fly or am I using a sledge hammer to crack a nut.
