We have recently upgraded our internal PBX from 1.4 to 1.8. This made the BLF lamps on our Polycom phones stop working. After a lot of googling and a lot of testing, I have been unable to find a solution.
I did try to change the call-limit value from 4 to 1, and this actually made BLF work (noone suggested this, and what documantation I can find states that this option is deprecated). This change has other implications, however. Call waiting stops working, queues don’t offer calls if the user is in a private call etc.
We have customers that require both BLF and call waiting at the same time.
We are running Asterisk 1.8.11-cert7
I’ve made the following additions to sip.conf [general]:
callcounter=yes counteronpeer=yes (undocumented? Supposed to replace limitonpeers?)
(old relevant values, unchanged)
allowsubscribe=yes subscribecontext=blf notifyringing=yes notifyhold=yes limitonpeers=yes
I also tried may other suggestions I’ve found like placing the hints in the same context as the extensions and removing subscribecontext.
Is there something I’m missing? Is something not working correctly?
Thanks in advance, Pan
