How to set up a Scout with inside wiring

Post by Fis » Mon Dec 28, 2009 6:30 pm

I am setting up the Ooma Hub to distribute dial tone to my home's inside wiring. I've disconnected the local phone service at the demar, and connected the house wiring to the PHONE jack on the Ooma Hub. Voila. Dial tone throughout the house. So far so good.

Now I'd like to set up the Scout to use for voicemail, because it's small, and because the Hub needs to stay in the basement near the cable router.

How do I set up the Scout? Just plugging it into the wall didn't seem to do anything.

Assuming no DSL, connect both the Hub's phone and wall ports to your house wiring using two phone cords and the splitter you were provided with your Hub. Now connect the Scout's wall jack to the house jack in the room you want.
