Possible to forward one line to ring the other on my OBi202?

I have the two lines set up to use two separate GoogleVoice numbers.  I'd like to know how to set up the OBi202 for one line to (ring) forward to the other line.  I have only one handset (and Google won't let one GV# forward to another GV#).  How can I set this up, if possible?
Thanks!

Boy this is a super easy one on the OBI.
I thought the  ph,ph2 setting was already set by default.  I would call each of the numbers just to see if it doesn't already work how you want out of the box.  If it doesn't then complete the following.

Go to whichever service provider you don't have a phone plugged in the following manner.   Im assuming Service provide 2 below.

Go to Voice services>>SP2 Service

On that page go to  X_InboundCallRoute
Change it to the following.
ph,ph2

Then you are golden.  I like to change the ring pattern using X_DefaultRing just so I can tell which number is being called.  It's on the same page.

This setup only rings all attached phones to the obi for the account. There are more complex ways to do this if it doesn't quite do what you want.  If so post which Obi you are using so we can explore the other options.  You wouldn't believe what an OBI can do with a little knowledge.

Long live our new ObiLords!
