Hi Ahmed,

Sadly, there is no built-in method to do this in CUCM. This question does pop up from time to time;

This solution (paraphrased) is presented in the Cisco Press book - Configuring Callmanager and Unity (A Step by Step Guide)

You can use a Unity Call Handler (with the same Extension as the Meet-Me DN)

Set up the Call Handler to do a Supervised Transfer to Ring the Meet-Me Conference.

Under the "Gather Caller Information" section of the Call Handler check "Confirm" and "Ask Callers Name"

When callers go through the Unity Call Handler they are asked to record their name, when the caller is forwarded to the Meet-Me Conference the name is played and conference participants are asked to Press 1 to accept the call or Press 2 to reject the call.

There is a nice discussion of this setup in this post (Thanks Deji and Robert); Communications and Video&topic=IP Telephony&CommCmd=MB?cmd=pass_through&location=outline@^1@@.2cbfa8c4

Hope this helps!

Hi Ahmed

I have previusly made a script in CCX that solves your problem (almost).

The inviter calls a CRS-RP and the system identifies that the call is a internal call, and look up in a database, to see if the conference is active. if the conference is not active, the inviter is asked to enter pincode, and to confirm pincode. Next the inviter is asked for how long the meeting should be active. after this the inviter is told to hang up and initiate Meetme to number XX.

Inviter hangs up, and activate Meetme.

Participants call in to same CRS-RP as inviter, but now the conference is active, so the participant is asked to enter pincode. If correct the participant is transfered to the meetme number XX.

The CRS-RP is reachabel from external, but the meetme numbers are only reachabel from internal.

All conferences are in a database, so you can see how often it is used.

Hope this could be possible way.

Downside is that if you know the number of the meetme, you can bypass the security check.

hi martin,

can you share the script with all & can you explain how we can make it work exactly ...

by the way i have CCM 6.1

Hi Ahmed

The script and desciption is sent to you in seperate mail. If other wish to have this send me an email.

You must have a Premium version of CCX to use database features.

If you have no database access, maybe the script can be rebuild to support XML files.


ps: I cannot get the system to accept a .doc attachment and a .zip, so email me!

Best regards,

Finally it is possible to secure meet-me conf with PIN in CUCM 11 release.

This feature is called Conference Now.
