CME call transfer with consultation to an ATA analog phone

Unanswered Question

I'm not able to transfer a call with consultation to an analog phone connected to an ATA.

Only way to transfer the call is using blind mode without consultation.

I think my 2801 with CME is correctly configurated.

I set the telephony-service 'transfer-system full-consult' and IP Phone where I try to do transfer is associated to a dual-line ephone-dn.

Have you any idea?

thanks for your replay.

Are you using latest FW on the ATA ?

The fw should be correct, ATA load ATA030100SCCP040211A.zup and the CME version is 4.1 (c2801-spservicesk9-mz.124-11.XJ3.bin).

I verified the fw version using 'debug ehpone registration' this the debug output:

Do you have the "transfer-patter" command set under telephony services, if you make it -

transfer-pattern .T

This should allow you to transfer calls to analog phones.

ANDREA GELATI Wed, 08/08/2007 - 05:41

Yes, I have yet 'transfer-pattern .T'.

I'm investigating about ATA firmware.

I configurated CME to load latest firmwave version, but I'm not sure if ATA load correctly this.

Hi Andrea,

I have XJ4 and latest FW on the ATA, and I can transfer with consult no problem.

I've set a bit in the ataconfig.txt to "support ITS service", but I'm not sure that it is even needed.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

Hi Paolo,

Finally I upgraded my 2801 with XJ4, but I have always same issue. I also tried tu upgrade CME to 4.2 version without result.

Please, can you explain me what is ataconfig.txt? I suppose the ATA configuration file, but I'm not able to find it.

ataconfig.txt and .cfg is the way to force upgrade ATA if it doesn't do that by "load ata" under telephony-service. You need the 'ata tools' to generate a .cfg file to copy on the router. These are available on CCO of course.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
