Configure T1/E1 VoIP Gateway (Custom Options)
If the T1/E1 VoIP Gateway requires customized configuration for its connection to the PSTN (i.e., the VoIP gateway
requires a configuration other than NI2, PRI), it is completed through the Quintum Tenor Configuration Manager. For
standard configuration of NI2, PRI, see Discover/Configure VoIP Gateway via Response Point Unit Administrator.
Step 1: Download the Configuration Manager Wizard
1. Download the Configuration Manager (version CM106.20.00) from www.quintum.com.
Before downloading the Configuration Manager from the Quintum website, we recommend
you temporarily disable your firewall (including the Virus Detection software) in your PC.
Otherwise, the Configuration Manager may be intercepted and problems may occur.
Step 2: Connect to Wizard/Discover T1/E1 VoIP Gateway
1. Once the Tenor Configuration Manager is downloaded, unzip and extract the zipped files into a local
directory of your choice on your PC.
2. From the location on your PC in which you installed the Configuration Manager files, click on
setup.exe. The installation process begins and the Quintum Tenor Configuration Manager screen is
3. Click on Next. Choose a directory in which to install the software (the default is C:Program
FilesQuintumTenor Configuration Manager). You are prompted through the rest of the installation
process. Once installation is complete, the Customer Code Dialog screen is displayed.
4. Select Customized Tenor Configuration Manager, enter 5678 in the Customer Code dialog box and
click on OK.
5. Click on Done and the installation process will complete.
Step 3: Configure T1/E1 VoIP Gateway
1. Launch the Configuration Manager from the location in which it is installed (default: Start> Pro-
grams> Quintum> Tenor Configuration Manager). Once launched, the Address Book screen is dis-

Before the Tenor executes an auto-discovery session, we recommend
checking the local firewall settings on your PC. The discovery process
can only occur on ethernet ports on the PC which are directly connected
to their respective subnets (i.e., your local subnet). We recommend setting the fire-
wall to accept local traffic (by making local subnet a trusted zone).
2. Click on the Discover button. The Local Tenor Discovery screen is displayed, listing all local T1/E1
VoIP Gateways which are “discovered”. (If you select the RS-232 button to discover a VoIP Gateway
connected to the serial port, you will be directed to choose a COM port).

3. Select the desired T1/E1 VoIP Gateway and click on Connect. (To confirm you are selecting the cor-
rect Tenor, you can compare the Serial Number listed on the Tenor Discovered window for that partic-
ular unit, against the serial number listed on the actual unit’s bottom). The Specify Login and Password
screen is displayed.

6. To begin configuration, click on Next to move to the next screen.
7. Select between CAS and ISDN signaling. The T1 WAN card within your VoIP Gateway supports two
signaling types: CAS and ISDN. Depending on your choice, a series of configuration screens are dis-
played to configure your T1/E1 VoIP Gateway (status of each task is displayed on the main menu.)
For CAS. Ensure you know the exact configuration of the T1 lines connected to the VoIP Gateway.
For ISDN. Ensure you know the ISDN protocol for the VoIP Gateway.
For detailed information about T1 connections and choosing the correct config-
uration options through the Configuration Manager, see the additional
Response Point information at www.quintum.com.
8. Configure each option and click on Next. The right panel on the screen displays help for the current
screen you are configuring.
9. After configuring all the screens, a summary screen displays the unit’s configuration. Click on Accept.
This completes the configuration of the VoIP Gateway using the Configuration Manager Wizard.
Upgrade VoIP Gateway Firmware via Response Point Unit Administrator
Upgrading VoIP Gateway devices (phones and voice services) is done automatically through the Microsoft Response
Point Administrator). The Upgrade option dynamically detects and supports firmware changes/updates. Before per-
forming an upgrade, ensure the applicable VoIP Gateway device (phone or voice service) is connected and powered
up, and the Response Point Administrator GUI is launched.
1. Download the firmware upgrade .rpu file (located at www.quintum.com under Response Point) in the
desired directory (i.e., c:UpgradeFilesResponsePoint).
2. From the Response Point Main Administrator screen, click on Upgrade Device Firmware.
3. At the “What Upgrade package do you want to apply” screen, click on Browse and locate the directory
