Yet another 2K question

Yet another 2K question

Yet another 2K question

This one I'm pretty sure I know the answer to but I've been surprised before.

On a 2K is there any command that can verify whether a single line set is plugged in or not?

Assuming no.

RE: Yet another 2K question

As often as I wished there was, the Mitel genie never granted it.

I suppose you're entitled to your opinion, I'm just not going to suppose very hard.

RE: Yet another 2K question

By single line set, I assume you mean an analog/ONS set. In which case, no. I'm not even sure how that would be possible, since the line resistance will vary depending on the cable distance.

RE: Yet another 2K question

I would imagine that a phone plugged in would be detectible but if wishes were horses...

RE: Yet another 2K question

There's got to be a means of electrical magic to detect an analog set on the line, as the telcos used to do it on CO switches overnight to find opens (and even count phones on the line to catch unauthorized extension telephones back in the leased instrument days) but I've yet to see a PBX implement this as a feature.

Closest I've seen is on the Definity when a set is configured as having a neon MWI. During daily testing if the switch can't see a neon on the station ports assigned to have one, an alarm will be asserted.
