Home Phone Wiring Question

I have just received a (Voice Over IP) VOIP package from Vonage.
I have a house with a one-line phone network, where five phones share the same line. The tech person I spoke with at Vonage told me to simply connect the Motorola VOIP until to any available phone jack, so that the entire house become connected. This is where my question is.
I have an ideal situation where the Motorola VOIP unit is in my basement, and there is a phone jack box on the other side of the wall in the room next door. I have plugged the RJ11 into the Line 1 port of the Motorola VOIP until. At the other end, I removed the other RJ11 plug and have fed the wires through the back of the box where the phone jack is. The wire colors that I fed through the back of the box are:
WHITE
BLACK
GREEN
RED
YELLOW
BLUE
I want to connect the correct wires to the four screws at the back of the wall phone jack. The four screws already have:
WHITE/Blue . connected to RED
BLUE/White . connected to GREEN
ORANGE/White . connected to BLACK
WHITE/Orange . connected to YELLOW
The RED, GREEN, BLACK, and YELLOW feed into the socket where you plug in a RJ11.
So, which colors on my wire that runs from my Motorola unit do I connect to which screws?

Red/green is the traditional tip-ring color code in legacy phone systems (pots) using quad wire, while in the cat3~cat 5 it is the blue pair......
Modern RJ11 ~RJ45 differ only in the width of the jack, and number of pairs involved, with the color code staying the same going from center outwards.....

Why did you remove the RJ112 from the line? All you had to do is plug it into the jack!
I removed the RJ11 from the Network Interface out side the house (to avoid any problems from stray telco signals) and plugged the line from the Motorola into one of the jacks in the room where it is located.
Why make things complicated for yourself?

I got it working. Thanks. The problem was, I didn't have a jack in the room where the Motorola unit is located. I will, however, remove the RJ112 in the outside box as I had no idea that there could be stray telco signals.
