I am using the Leviton jack do I wire the Cat5e Leviton jack to 568A? or? and then which pair do I connect on the phone jack in the wiring closet?

You really should proof read your post before you click send.

Are you saying you want to tap into this cable. Is it in use?

What are you connecting it to?

Use the blue pair - connect the blue pair at both ends and test

I figured it out
Thanks all

On the Leviton Cat5e jack I wired the Cat5e cable as 568A, then in my wiring closet where the main phone jack connection is, I connected from the cat5e cable the blue/white to the red wire terminal in the phone jack, and cat5e blue to green wire terminal in the phone jack

Not that it matters, but you just reversed the pair.
