Digium Multicast Paging

I’ve been searching for information on utilizing multicast paging with Digium phones. My test phone is a D40, the test system is FreePBX 5.211.65-11.
Has anyone set up a paging system utilizing Digium and multicasting? If so, any advice is most welcome. For the Yealinks it was fairly straightforward but I haven’t found very much on this type of application for Digium.
I have read that Digiums are capable of using multicast DNS discovery, but have not found mention yet of being able to set a multicast listen or send address on the phones.
Thank you for your thoughts.

Confirmed this is still accurate via IRC.

Thank you for confirming it’s still accurate. I appreciate the update.

Indeed, that forums posting is still accurate.


Digium today confirmed that their phones support multicast paging. Does anyone have a how-to for setting this? Google search has been fruitless so far.

Thanks in advance.

With whom at Digium did you speak?

My co-worker got the information from a digium support rep/engineer, Wissam Arabo. Is this not correct?

That is incorrect information. Today’s current firmware does not support Multicast Paging.

Thank you for the information.
