CME 4.0 - How to make a broadcast hunt group

Running CME 4.0 on 2801. Cusotmer wants incomming calls on analog trunks to PLAR and ring all phones.

I see there is not an actual broadcast hunt group defined in the IOS cofig.

Is there a workaround ?

I added a secondary extension to a few phones and made the external line PLAR to it. All the phones ring when calls come to the number.

I pick up the first call and leave it up.

The second call to the PLAR number rings on the first phone as a "call waiting" call, it doesnt ring on the others.

what am I missing ? Thanks

Make sure your line is not dual-line, other wise it will hunt between channels. You can stop the hunting for incoming calls using "huntstop channel".

Let me know if that works.
