2) Connect the y-side of the EHS that has the RJ45 and RJ9 telephone jacks to the Leitner wireless headset charging base in both the AUX jack (which is the largest jack in the center of the base) and the TELEPHONE CONNECTOR jack (the RJ9 jack 2nd from the right)

4) Connect the other side of the EHS cable into the HEADSET JACK of the Avaya or Shoretel Phone

5) Last, plug your power cable back in to the back of the charging base
