Host PABX access

Host PABX access

Host PABX access

G'day all,
We are planning to put Panasonic TES824 behind another TES824 which will be the host PABX.

This second (or new PABX) need to use CO lines that are attached to both PABX's.

The way explained in the manual to access host pabx co  line is pressing,
 automatic CO line access number (9) -> Host pabx access code

Since the automatic CO line access number(9) is used to access the host PABX, will it be possible to access CO lines attached to this new PABX by pressing the same automatic line access number (9)?

RE: Host PABX access

no you will have to dial the co line code on host pbx

RE: Host PABX access

OK, then I am able to user host pbax by pressing 88 (co group access number and co group number)

then I configured those CO which going to the host pabx with host pabx access number (9) which should be the automatic CO line access number of the host PABX.

but i am unable to get the dial tone by pressing 88--9 but able to get 88-81 (up to 88 for each co line of the host pabx). here I am using --88 81 .

according to the manual I should be abe to access host pabx CO by pressing 88 then 9. any thing I have missed?

help highly appriciated..

RE: Host PABX access

set idle line preference on phone and then set ext that is on the line with pickup dial feature and all you
will have to do is pickup the phone and wait for an outside
line from host pbx.

RE: Host PABX access

I have a similar problem? I have a KX-TA-1232 behind a centrex system. When I dial 9 I want to get an outside centrex line and have the PBX predial the 9? I've tried everything I can but I cant get the PBX to dial the 9 for me? Right now I have to dial 99 to dial a number and I only want to dial 9.

RE: Host PABX access

should have put in the td 1232 could have done ars
you can do pickup dial with the ta also....

RE: Host PABX access

Didnt put the KX-TA in there, its a custoemr who already had one. How can I have the dial 9 dial the extra 9 for me?

RE: Host PABX access

Am I misreading the programming for this? Can the TA do this or do I have to try and have centrex remove the dial 9 requirement?

RE: Host PABX access


RE: Host PABX access

I did look at the manual. This isnt my first time programming a PBX's. Do you have a pprogram number to make it easier for me to find it? I didnt see anthing in the programming guide called "pickup dial"?

RE: Host PABX access

hint its in user guide for slt's

RE: Host PABX access

why so cryptic, how about just say exactly where it is.

RE: Host PABX access

PS: I dont want prime line preference or anything like that. When I pick up the phone I want the ICM to be default, if I dial 9 I want the PBX to pick a free line and dial the extra 9 for me.

RE: Host PABX access

can't do it without ars the best you can do is pickup dial

RE: Host PABX access

OK, ARS is ok. Can I set ARS to use all trunks TRK1-TRK6? I was hoping to keep each trunk in a seperate group so I can have a light for each one but if I have to pool them I will. To be clear, any ext that picks up and dials 9 will get the next available  trunk (1-6) no matter what they dial. When the call is placed the system will dial a 9+ the number they entered after their orignal 9 for an outside line.

IE: I pick up ext 110, I get ICM. I dial 9 I hear dialtone. I dil 555-1212 and it dials 9,555-1212 on the Cenrex trunk in the first avaialble trunk (1-6).


RE: Host PABX access

whats the manual say?

RE: Host PABX access

do you have "whats the manual say" programmed in as a hot key or something. Thats all I ever see on this forum. How about an actual answer for a change. I have the manual, I read the manual. I have been programming PBX' for years and I'm fairly new to panasonic. If I could have found the answer in the manual I wouldnt be asking it here!

RE: Host PABX access

well let me say this you are asking for us to build you
an ars table I say set it up test it and see if it works

RE: Host PABX access

I'm not familiar with the TA, but I know the TD like the back of my .. uh, best friend's brother's uncle's hand.

Pick up dial won't do exactly what you want, because it will a) make it annoying for you to use the intercom functions, and b) I think you want to remove the CENTREX 9 instead of the Panasonic 9.

Pick up dial.. IIRC, system program #204 (or is it 240?) ... around there somewhere anyhow. "PICKUP DIAL" is actually the dial timeout. The shortest you can set is one second. This means that you have one second to dial an intercom function, or it will dial out whatever number you've programmed.

Intercom functions 740 and 741 toggle pickup dialing off or on.  742 sets the number to dial, just like call forwarding (ie 7429# would set the pickup dial string to "9").

IMNSHO, pickup dialing is only useful for hotline phones. You know, like the red ones where you shout, "Get me the President!".

...let's see. I don't know ARS.  If I really wanted this and couldn't convince the centrex folks to pull the 9 (should be able to), I would look at the toll restrictor stuff for modified long-distance dialing. You might be able to fudge something there.

Incidentally, why Centrex AND a PBX?

Oh, one more thing. SLT is panasonic code word for "POTS phone".


RE: Host PABX access

Thanks for the answers. You are 100% correct in everything you said. The customer ordered centrex to ge the "fredom" features available to small comapnies in our area including special discounts for regional calling etc... I had no control over that. The office has 12 desks and 7 lines hence the PBX (I think they only need about 4 - 5 lines). I will be looking to have centrex pul the dial 9 requirement. Its seems simple enought what I want to do and if I had designed the PBX I certanly would have thought of this. If you read the text on Host/PBX access its exactly what I want but they dont give you what they describe :(
