CME automatic dialinf on offhook

Hi there.

I would like to know if it is possible and how to configure an IP phone to automatically dial an external number as soon as the handset is picked up.

Thanks in advance.

Juan,

Tested this using IPCommunicator.

Configured IPCommunicators first line as follows.

(*** Make sure you configure first line as intercom line****)

ephone-dn 1

number 5000

intercom 7000

num-exp 7000 92142322332

When I go off hook (Press speaker phone, press new call soft key or push the line button), it dials 7000. So thats equivalent to going off hook using the handset.

So my first solution should work.

Scrub my second solution, as that wont work!

Hi Sankar.

I think the first configuration suggested dials the number if you press the button, not if the user pickup the phone (off hook).

Regarding the second alternative, I understand it will monitor the indicated number, but I don't understand how it will dial the number when it is off hook

Cheers.

Hi Sankar.

At first it didn't work, I heard silence after offhook, but I added the following command and it now works as required

ephone 7

auto-line 1

Thanks a lot for your help.
