TDA50 remote access card?

TDA50 remote access card?

TDA50 remote access card?

I'm going to need to go on-site anyway, but I was wondering if there was a way to know if there is a tda5196 remote access card installed through the programming console?
I've looked through the Unified programming console, and not found any mention of it - am I missing something?
I'd rather not open the box unless I need to...

Connecting into the system through VM does not work since the settings don't allow to transfer to an extension. sad


RE: TDA50 remote access card?

providing that remote programing is enabled You can  dial in remotely using voicemail by calling the lead btn and when it answers key in  #8 xxx if you get a modem squeal then there is a 5196 in it . you can whilst on site dial intercom xxx from any from any phone on the system and if you get hear a modem squeal ....  
this virtual ext number value is located in umpc 11.1 under the remote tab... Since all the real techs know this info i generally change the value

RE: TDA50 remote access card?

Thanks cwc3.
I had forgotten about the #8 option - I'm usually using the #6 option.
I knew about the umpc 11.3 info but that didn't tell me if the remote card was actually installed.

It's not getting the modem squeal ... dang. sad
Time for an upgrade!

RE: TDA50 remote access card?

yes if you ring from a display set on site if its in there
you will see xxx:Modem if not you'll get a fast busy
you are doing the right thing external modems take up an analog ext and are just not as reliable as a 5196
while you are doing open heart kick it up to a 5.021 ,,,,
