Is it possible to assign a multicast address to IP phone, connected to UC540?
I know, that there is a phone dn (paging) and there I can assign multicast goups.
But the thing is, that the paging works only locally. I can't send a voice packet to a mulicast address of the paging group, if application, which sends this packet do not belong to this paging group. I know it's hard to understand
To understand the problem, let's make an examle:
We have 2 IP phones connected to UC 540.
Paging number "2" is configured for multicast address "184.108.40.206 port 32000"
This paging is assigned to IP phones, under ephone profile.
UC is connected to a router. Both router and UC are configured for multicast.
I have a laptop connected to a router, which has an application, that can send and recieve voice stream.
Laptop is also configured for the same multicast address.
When I'm calling number "2" from my IP phone, voice receivers are second IP phone and the application on my laptop.
But when I'm trying to send a voice stream to multicast address from the application, IP phones can't recieve the voice stream.
Multicast is configured correctly.
