TDM410 PTSN line setup with 1 analog phone

for ringing to work, you had to plug in an extra molex connector into
the card to supply power to the ringing generator portion.
If you forgot to do that...

there every day learning and working with new stuff. Sometimes not of
my own choosing, but one must do what they need to keep getting those
