Configuring your SMDR output

The Alcatel 4200-4400e phone system sends its call records via a serial connection. The most recent units already have a .v24 port but, for older units, you may need to purchase a .v24 module. Connect a serial cable between your Alcatel 4200-4400e .v24 module and the PC that NetPBX is installed and running on. See the table below for a summary of data output from Alcatel 4200-4400e:
