Re: IP Phone 7971

Hello Ammar,

I think the easiest way to solve this problem is by using Forced Authorization Codes. If you implement these then any time someone dials long distance or international calls they have to enter a code to complete the call or it does not go through. Every user can have their own code. You can also run reports to see who has been dialing long distance and international calls. This also leaves the phone usable for local and internal calls

Here is a link

Hope this helps.

Hiii Travis-Dennis,,,,,

Thanks alot for your assistance, actually you point will be nice, but my vip client will not accept this, cause they used to use a security code once in the bpx phones, so please if there is any service to lock the key pad with password it will be great vectory to our IT teame.

Witing for your nice recommendations.

Yours ...
