Can I use the symbols '*' or '#' in a phone extension? For example, 33* or 33#. I am using CME and the reason for wanting to do this is for easier use of Intercom feature.

Thanks,

Mike

Mike,


I just tried it in mine, and it let me configure it. However, whether or not the phones actually allow you to dial it is another story. Im not understanding your reasoning as far as wanting to use * or # as opposed to the traditional way of configuring intercoms on CME. My intercoms are configured as follows:


ephone-dn 22

number 1111

label Intercom

description Intercom

name Intercom

intercom 1112

!

!

ephone-dn 23

number 1112

label Intercom

description Intercom

name Intercom

intercom 1111

!

!

!

ephone 6

device-security-mode none

mac-address 001D.A291.218E

username "xxxx" password xxx

speed-dial 1 94046680371 label "K-Love Cellphone"

type 7971

button 1:11 2m10 3m12 5:22

ephone 7

device-security-mode none

mac-address 0014.A9DE.E666

username "xxx" password xxx

type 7960

button 1:12 2:23


Hope that helped.

Kenneth,

Thanks for the post. The reason we wanted the symbols is for end-users only having to remember the extension of the person. Eg. if my extension is 1234, then my intercom would be *1234. I just tested it out and it does work.

Thanks,

Mike
