I've to configure a 3845 running CME with 120 analog phones on 5 VG224 registered on it.
The customer wanted to implement a huntgroup with all analog phones, so that if a call arrives to the first analog phone and it's busy, the call is redirected until an available phone is founded.
But I've found that the list for a huntgroup has a maximum of 32 members.
And if I use huntgroups chains, the redirection is limited to 20 hops by command max-redirect (global on telephony service)
So I've considered using CFB/CFNA on each ephone-dn, but I haven't found a limit of hops or redirects if I use that config. There is limit for that?
Please let me know.
No port will never ring at the same time (thanks heaven). It will just distribute calls round-robin as mentioned above.
Use preference only if you want to set the order in which ports will ring.
