Using CME and 7906 phone in the lobby area.

Like to configure a auto-dial number to the reception number say ext 2000 once the 7906 phone in the lobby is off-hook.(something like a plar).

Any one has any idea to accomplish this ?

I have this problem too.

You can create a courtesy phone using the Cisco CME intercom feature. You can configure and IP phone with only a single line where that single line is an intercom. In this case, when you lift the handset off-hook, the only possible line selection is the intercom line. This line is selected, and the phone autodials to the configured intercom destination. Ex.

ephone-dn 1

number 1000 (example DN)

intercom 5000 label Reception (example reception DN)

ephone 1

mac-address xxxx.xxxx.xxxx

type 7906

button 1:1

Try that and see if that gives the desired behavior.

Actually found the answer :

on the ephone config; add auto-line "x" - x is the intended directed number.

On ephone-dn :

intercom x

Thanks for all the help.
