I wired a female BT to the 2 terminals inside and an RJ11 to BT plug into the socket and it works perfectly. Remember when wiring the lead that the 2 INSIDE contacts on the RJ11 are the line.
I'm confused now.
I originally wired it with the phone connected to L2 and P1 with the line going to the RJ45 socket as that seemed the obvious way, but it did not work. Seeing your post I tried the phone into the RJ45 socket and the line to L2 and P1. It still does not work.
So which is the correct connection? Though whether it really matters I'm not sure as it does not work either way.

The last sentence of giraffenigel's post is likely to be significant. If the line cord you are using came from a phone it is likely that pins 2&5 on the BT plug are connected to the outer pair of the RJ11, that won't work. 2&5 of the BT plug need to connect to the inner pair of the RJ11.

Rambo1152 is correct, the line from the socket has to go from the inner 2 of the RJ11 plug to 2 & 5 on the BT plug, I had to make one.

My RJ45 is connected correctly. I get dial tone, the LED on the board lights. But the device does not work. DTMF tones are not generated and dial pulses are not suppressed on the line.

I have orderered on of these: https://bre.is/ujD4GEKd2
It should be a kind of rotatone copy with polarity guard. If it works I'll by one more.

My guess is the dial connects to G, O & P,
Ground (com), Off- normal & Pulse, but it looks as if you have to improvise your own terminals using the holes in the PCB.

I have used a similar or close to in 2015, but sold the phone, yes the pinout was as you described.
