I have the Endpoint Manager on my PBX and have never gotten around to playing with it until today. I understand enough about it to (I believe) have it configured and ready for my test phone to get configured.
I’ve read the wiki and watched the video and have a couple of questions.
The problem I have is I don’t know how the phones get this configuration. Is it TFTP? Is the Endpoint Manager just managing a TFTP structure on my PBX? If it is then I don’t see any of my configurations sitting in the tftpboot folder.
do the extensions show up in the end point manager? i assume you did create a template for the polycom phones and installed the firmware? polycom bootrom and sip application files are very large. it takes forever to install them.
In Endpoint Manager, i can set my Polycom VVX 300 phones to display “Name”, “Extension”, or “Name-Extension”. It seems to be a limitation of the phones that they’ll truncate the extension if the name was too long.
I was wondering if there was a way to set it to be “Extension-Name”. At leas then people could get the gist of who’s sitting there, and see the entire 4-digit extension.
