BLF with 1.4 and Polycom

Does anyone know definitively what needs to be added/changed to get the lights to work.


you need a ‘hint’ in the dialplan for each extension or line you want to monitor, like

(You also need to set call-limit=10 or some other value >2 for each SIP extension for hints to work correctly with Asterisk 1.4)

When these are set, asterisk CLI command ‘core show hints’ should give you a list of extensions & their status.

In the phone [extension].cfg (i.e. x200.cfg) add or change these values:

<msg msg.bypassInstantMessage="1"> <mwi msg.mwi.1.subscribe="200" msg.mwi.1.callBackMode="contact" msg.mwi.1.callBack="*97"/>

In your phone global config or sip.cfg add or change these values:

<user_preferences up.useDirectoryNames="1" up.oneTouchVoiceMail="1"/> <feature"presence" feature.1.enabled="1">
You should they have a ‘buddies’ softkey on the phone (and some other lines enable the ‘messages’ button to call voicemail)

In the buddy list directory, add the contacts if you don’t already have them and set buddy watch on for each contact you want to monitor, or put <bw>1</bw>somewhere in the item section of the -directory.xml file

I think that’s everything…
