Hello, I have recently asked for a new line and I am to figure out how to connect my internal wire to the box , the box looks like a 66 box it has rows and columns of pins where the wire gets trapped, my question is how do I know which wire goes where I have one cable with 4 wires (red, green, black and yellow), and there are 2 available rows with 6 pins on each row. Can anyone help me??? thanx

A phone line uses only 2 wires (red/green) - based upon your description, my guess would be the red/green go on the 2 available rows respectively.
Hook it up, test with regular phone set.
Or, use jumper cables to a rj11 jack to verify.

(Normally, I would expect the installer to identify for you where the line connection is.... Is this a residence? Doesn't sound like a "normal" demarc....)

Aloha! Richard.
