Hey guys --
Is there a way to both monitor a line and overlay the number? Basically I have an admin that is looking to pickup calls for his Manager (the overlay), but we also need to know when the manager is on the phone (monitor).
He has a 7965, so since I had extra buttons to play with, I was able to use the extra buttons to monitor the line, but I cannot monitor the same line that is overlayed, please see snippet below for explanation.
username "pharwin" password cisco
button 1:8 2c5,31 3c6,32 4:20
button 5m31 6m32
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
LIFESCI_CME(config-ephone)#button 5m5 6m6
dn 5 assigned to button 2: this CLI is ignored!
Looking at buttons, 2, 3, 5 and 6 respectively.
Any thoughts? Is there a better way to do this?
Please let me know.
