How to tone a network cable

I was at a client today trying to tone out a network cable. I plug the tone generator into the wall jack and make my way to the server room where, using the inductive amplifier, I should hear a sound resembling a European police siren emanating from the correct cable. What I got was this.

Turns out the client has an IP phone system set up with music for customers on hold. Little bit of cross-talk.
