Using speed dial button as paging on provisioned 525g's
We recently switched to a hosted phone provider with provisoning for our 2 SPA525G2's but still want to maintain an internal paging function between them using a speed dial button. For less confusion, lets call in ex5.
I have successfully created a dial plan and am able to dial *96 + extension number to activate the paging system. My objective is to just hit ex5 and having it automatically activate the paging function.
I feel I'm very close but need help with the last step.
Sorry for resurrecting a dead thread, but I still have the same question, which wasn't answered here, and I couldn't find anything here or in Google:
How can I put the SPA525G2's internal LAN-based paging function (the one that *96 invokes by default invokes) on a phone or attendant call button?
As the OP was trying to get across, just using "fnc=sd;ext=*96123@$PROXY" (or without "@$PROXY") sends a dial command to my VoIP provider; it does not invoke the Cisco internal extension paging function.
Interestingly enough, if I have a group page defined (I'm using the default group "800"), this command does work: "fnc=sd;ext=800". But group pages are of limited utility because of the many limitations.
Doesn't it always work this way... I've fought this for 4 hours. I posted my query here as a last resort, and then I thought, "I wonder what would happen if I used "*96#123" instead of just "*96123..."
The answer is, it works. I'll leave this up hopefully to save someone the 4 hours.
