UC500 from .NET?

Unanswered Question

I need to connect to my UC540 and get data... Things like recent user activity, line status, etc... (Not via CDR files... hopefully via the same way that the phone gets its call history list?)

It would also be great if I could send commands to the phone for dialing, transfers, etc... though I think I'd have to use the TSP for that...

I have looked at some of the XML API documentation, and I really don't see any useful information in the examples..

Has anyone attempted to make a connection from a custom app? Better yet, from .NET?

How can I do this?

Dear Sir;

I suggest you use TSP for that. is there anything you would like to have/see that TSP does not offer?

Hi Alberto

Thanks for your reply

I'm not sure if TSP will give me the info I'm looking for or not, but I'd love to try it... I cannot seem to find a 64 bit TSP though

Where can I get the latest TSP?

Hi Andrew:

The x64-bit CME TSP is in development/test. We plan to make it available for download in the June/July timeframe. This will be required for all x64 bit Windows OSs. If you have a x32 bit Windows you can use the existing CME TSP.

Hi shtalukd

Thanks for the response

I'm shocked that a company as big as Cisco would be so far behind... I guess I'll just have to wait

Has anyone heard anything about the 64-bit TSP / CallConnector?

Seriously Cisco, this is embarassing for you and your partners

Hi Alberto

I now have the 64-bit TSP and I'm using it successfully for my Unified CallConnector software, which is great.

The next thing I want to do is get back to my original question, which is how to use the TSP/TAPI for a custom application. Currently, I'm able to use the Windows tapi32 library from .NET (with the Cisco TAPI driver installed), but it is extremely limited in available functions... I'm effectively only able to place a call.

I found this: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/tapi_dev/6_0_1/tpdevch3.html#wp1028330 and now I'm wondering how the heck I use it... Where is the library that I need to wrap in my managed code to gain access to these C functions?
