Hi


Yes, that's correct.


The agent PC must be connected to the back of the agent's own phone.


The parameters I've referred to earlier should be enabled to ensure that the RTP traffic can be 'seen' by the agent PC.


Some PCs have problems sniffing the traffic, but these are the basic steps to get it working.


Regards


Aaron

Hi


Do you have your PCs connected to the IP Phone PC port?


Have you enabled the Span to PC Port and/or PC Voice VLAN access parameters on the phones?

Hi,

  I have not connect my PC to the PC port of the phone.


"Span to PC Port" is disabled on the IP phone while the "PC Voice VLAN Access" is enabled on the IP phone.


  So, do you mean that i need to connect my PC to the PC port of the phone and enable "Span to PC Port" and "PC Voice VLAN Access" of the phone also to clear those error event on UCCX server after the agent logon to it.


  Thanks and look for your clarification.

Hi


Well - I'm kind of skipping ahead a little there..


There are two types of recording available:


1) SPAN all the agent phones' voice traffic to the UCCX server so it can be packet captured

2) Desktop Monitoring (where the CAD software does the packet capture and sends it back to the server over normal ucast IP)


Which are you using?


Out of the box with no additional SPAN/RSPAN config you default to option 2, which is by far the most popular option.


If you don't have agent PCs connected through the phones it will never work.


Regards


Aaron

Hi,

   I have connect the PC to the phone already.


   However, the same error event also logged in the UCCX server after logon by CAD.


   So, i would like to know if there were any other setting i could verify why it did not work.


   Thanks and look for your reply.
