A while ago i was gonna try my beige box in a TNI.
I read a lot of files and saw a shitload of threads so i could do it properly once i was there.

The one i read about was:  301gbyu.jpg

 

 

 

But the one i found was: 1zpnq0l.jpg

How do i phreak this one?

Oh, there's another white box next to this one, but i didnt open it because there was this man who walked outside and he kinda scared me..
Any help would be great :)

Ah, OK, so you've found the big cross-connect punchdown block for your area! If this is attached to the side of an apartment building or block of condos or something, this is where /everyone's/ telephone line comes in.

 

Basically, the telco pulls in a large number of pairs to these boxes and punches them down on one side of the white vertical blocks you see. The blocks have metal teeth that stick up, which are 66-type punchdown connectors. You press a wire into the split in the tooth with a special tool and it splits the insulation and makes a connection. The 66-type blocks come in two major types: the kind where all of the teeth in a horizontal row are connected together, and the kind where half of each vertical row is connected and requires a 66-type bonding jumper to connect the two halves.

 

Depending on the utilization in the box, most of the telco pairs may not be in service. The ones that are will have another pair punched down near them (see above, depends on the punchdown block's structure). You can clip on to two of the metal teeth for tip and ring. Study up on the color coding for 25- and 50-pair cable!

I'll figure something out, thank you :)

If your beigebox clips are small enough to avoid shorting two of the metal teeth, then yes you can clip right on! The whole metal tooth is conductive.

Hah, that's a picture of the TNI on my old house with a line-in tap inside of it.  I posted that somewhere online about 10 years ago, but I can't remember why.

I put it in myself.  Come on, law enforcement doesn't suck THAT bad. :)

hey, considering what i've read about you from your blog and the pla zine, i would not at all be surprised if you had a tap on your line.

sounds like you need a krone test plug for that... 

 

but honestly, you probably should not be messing around with that box since it feeds the whole building and/or potentially more...

OP, you can either try to hang the clips directly on the punchdown block pins (some tape may help prevent them from flopping over and shorting out on adjacent pins), or you could punch down a small length of wire into the block and clip on to that.  There is also an adapter made which allows you to clip alligator clips on one and and push over a pair of punchdown pins, but I don't know what it is called.  I have one somewhere...
