configuration of power fail telephone

Hi All.

I have a little trouble with setting up the pft phone on an NS700.

After verifying the pinouts, and using 1&2 on the RJ45, I have connected the phone to the pft ports on the front face of the NS700. This is the jack that has Extn 1-4 and underneath the jack has PFT. When I pick up the powerfail phone I have dial tone and can dial. This is with power to the system.
If I power off the system it is as cold as a kipper.

At this point I tried plugging the phone into the PFT jack under the LCOT card, and there is nothing there. Dead air. Accessing the sytem with the NSWebManager, I took a look at the ports, and am wondering if I missed anything.

Help is appreciated.
