Galaxy FXS Gateway

Overview

The Galaxy FXS is the gateway that connects analog telephones, faxes and traditional analog voice interfaces to your UCx Server. The gateway comes in a 4-port or 8-port configuration.

If the Gateway is connecting to a UCx Cloud Server, you just need the following additional settings:

  2. Ensure NAT is set to Yes on the System Parameter page of the FXS Gateway. (see Section 2.4.)
  3. Ensure NAT settings on the UCx SIP Settings page is set to Static IP and Auto Configure is applied. (see section 3.)
