Authorization codes/Call Manager Express

Anyone know a way to restrict a low-end phone (7902, 7911, etc) from calling out of the CME but if a manager wants to use it, he can enter an authorization code to make the call.

The higher-end phones have a login button that does function similar to this but in our warehouse we use the 7902 and 7911 phones.

Thank you.

You might me able to accomplish this by creating an after-hours block pattern, exempting all phones but the warehouse phones and placing a pin number on those phones which you give to the managers.


after-hours block pattern 1 9 7-24

ephone 1

after-hours exempt

ephone 2

pin 12345

Another alternative is that you configure a DP with pin-like digits to place before the number, so only people that know it can dial out.

Then you would configure COR to restrict the other DPs and make effective the above.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
