Answered Question

As of Right now we can only initiate 4 calls using the conferance feature, is there a way to increase the number of people that can be on at the same time?

I have this problem too.

Yes. In the Call Manager service parameters you can modify the "maximum ad hoc conference" parameter. From the online help:

This parameter specifies the maximum number of participants that are allowed in a single Ad Hoc conference. The value of this field depends on the capabilities of the software/hardware conference bridge. The maximum number of conference bridge participants for typical conference bridges follow: Software Conference 64; Cisco Catalyst WS-X6608: 16; Cisco Catalyst 4000: 16; and NM-HDV: 6. Setting this value above the maximum capacity of the conference will result in failed entrance to a conference bridge if you try to add more ports than the specific conference bridge configuration allows.

This is a required field.

Default: 4

Minimum: 3

Maximum: 64

Note that with later ISRs/IOS, I believe you can get 8 parties in a single conference.

HTH.

Bill

Thank you for the replys, I found the setting and have changed it already.  Sorry for not searching first, this is my first post and plead ignorance.

Thank you very much

Not a problem, just remember that NetPro is a great resource because of that. Many of the questions you might have, are already in threads, and you just need to take 5 minutes to search and you'll probably end up with a lot of hits in your search.

I'd say around 80% of common questions and problems are already in some threads.
