FXS Ports & Pickup Groups

Is there a way to make an analog phone connected to an FXS port a part of a call pickup group that contains both analog phones & IP phones? I setup a lab and used MGCP to add the gateway and I was able to add the DN associated with the FXS port to a call pickup group. However, I am unable to figure out how to answer the call from the analog phone when another IP phone in the call pickup group is ringing.

Thanks in advance

Re: FXS Ports & Pickup Groups

Looks like I might have found the answer. According to Cisco's website, this can be done with the following restrictions:

- CCM 4.2 (or higher I am assuming)

- VG or ISR using SCCP as the signaling protocol

- Enabling auto answer

I am getting the upgrade CD's to test this in out lab. I will try to post another reply with more information as time permits. Here is the link if anybody is interested:

You are going down the right track with this.

See this other post I made (for a different purpose, but the principal is the same - it just opens up features available to IP phones for FXS ports by registering them using SCCP).

Re: FXS Ports & Pickup Groups

Thanks Aaron.

Now what I am trying to determine is support in 5.X. In the SCCP document, it shows 4.2, but I have not found much information as of yet. I am assuming that it is supported, but I am more curious about the # of DLU's required for each SCCP endpoint.
