Cisco ATA 186 MGCP and Asterisk - HowTo
The ATA configuration is well described by Cisco and you will find pointers on the following page
Asterisk phone cisco ATA18x
For a 5mn quick start do the following :
Connect your ATA on the Ethernet, it will get an IP address via the DHCP. Look in your message log to see which IP adress has been allocated
Connect with a web browser on your adaptor http://the-ata-ip-address/dev to get access to the configuration.
Set UID0: to your-login-line1 ; This will be reuse later in asterisk configuration as the end point ID (Channel in sip.conf)
Set PWD0: to the associated passwd
repeat for UID1 and PWD1 for line 2 ; Note the UID1 MUST be different from UID0
Set UseLoginID: to 0 ; If you want a loginID different of your end point ID set to 1 and fill in LoginID0: and LoginID1:
Set GkOrProxy: to the IP address of your Asterisk server (or SIP proxy/gateway)
Save your configuration.
