Connecting a DTTA

If you are planning to use an exchange data link, go to Exchange data link connections.



  1. Power off the pSeries computer.
  2. There are four RJ45 connectors on the back of each DTTA card, numbered 0, 1, 2, and 3. These will correspond to Blueworx Voice Response trunks numbered:
    • On the first adapter: 1, 2, 3, and 4
    • On the second adapter: 5, 6, 7, and 8
    • On the third adapter: 9, 10, 11, and 12
    • On the fourth adapter: 13, 14, 15, 16
    To connect each DTTA to the telephony network, plug an RJ45 cable into the appropriate connector on the back of the card, and then plug the other end of the cable into the telephony network.
  3. When you have connected all DTTAs to the network, power on the pSeries computer.

If you need to install software, go to Software installation. After this you need to configure the telephony environment, as described in the Blueworx Voice Response for AIX: Configuring the System information.

Note: On some RS/6000 models that are supported by Blueworx Voice Response , the logical slot numbers are not the same as the physical slot numbers. This could cause confusion when trying to identify specific adapters.

To locate a DTTA, click Configuration --> Pack Configuration, and then Trunk Interface Parameters for one of the trunks that is on the adapter you want to test. From the Trunk Interface Parameters window displayed, click Locate Adapter to cause the LED on the back of the card to flash for five seconds.
