Norstar MOH & Headset hookup

Norstar MOH & Headset hookup

Norstar MOH & Headset hookup

Disclaimer: I'm a software guy, not a hardware guy...especially phone system.  Please be patient.

I work for a small company with a Norstar Meridian phone system.  Our office manager would like implement music on hold/background music for the holidays.  We would like to use her PC as a music jukebox.  (I know -- copyright laws.  Let's forgoe that for now.)

I've seen several discussions, very high level, that state  the PC can be hooked into the headset jack.  But none of the posts describe the details of doing so.

Here is what I understand.  You have the phone console with a headset jack (rj45?).  You have a PC with a wire pair coming out of the speaker out.  Ok.  That is all I understand.

Here is what I need to know.  What do I do with the speaker wire pair?  Do I connect it to an rj45 connector?  Which pins?  How does the phone console know that music is coming in the headset jack and is to be used for MOH/background?  

Tangeant: is the discussion about the violet/slate wire pair applicable to system panel only?  

Your patience and knowledge is appreciated,
