Time blinking on Polycom IP 331 phones


(6 Taylor) #1

Hello. We are having this issues with time blinking on our Polycom IP 331 phones. We had an Asterisk server that broke down, so we have to build another one from scratch, we configured asterisk 13 over centos7. Several configurations were taken from previous server that worked properly. We managed for the clock from server and harware clock get syncronized, and it is important to mention that we live in Venezuela, South America, so we need for our server to get the correct hour and display it on the Polycom phones.

Thanks in advance.


(6 Taylor) #2

Keeping this alive. Please help.


(Itzik) #3

Are you provisioning the phone’s through EPM?


(6 Taylor) #4

No, I’m not, because I think I have to pay for it.


(Itzik) #5

So you provision your phones, or you set them up manually?


(6 Taylor) #6

No, not manually, but this is what we have done so far:

1-This what I have on “nano /etc/ntp.conf”, there are some server that we have after “#”

For more information about this file, see the man pages

ntp.conf(5), ntp_acc(5), ntp_auth(5), ntp_clock(5), ntp_misc(5), ntp_mon(5).

driftfile /var/lib/ntp/drift

Permit time synchronization with our time source, but do not

permit the source to query or modify the service on this system.

restrict default kod nomodify notrap nopeer noquery
restrict -6 default kod nomodify notrap nopeer noquery

Permit all access over the loopback interface. This could

be tightened as well, but to do so would effect some of

the administrative functions.

restrict 127.0.0.1
restrict -6::1

Hosts on local network are less restricted.

#restrict 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 nomodify notrap

2-Now on “nano /etc/asterisk/indicacionts.conf” I have this (what is after “#” is what was before)

3-On “nano /etc/asterisk/extensions_additional.conf”, we added these lines

TIMEFORMAT = kM
TONEZONE = ve

4-We ran the command “ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Caracas /etc/localtime”

5-Checking “nano /etc/php.ini” on we wrote "date.timezone = America/Caracas

Hope this gives you a good idea of what we have done.


#7

if your local network is 192.168.1.0/24 then

#restrict 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 nomodify notrap

might better be

restrict 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 nomodify notrap


(6 Taylor) #8

My local voice network is 172.16.26.0


#9

That’s not a network but just try 172.16.0.0/12 which is and includes whatever real network you chose

restrict 172.16.0.0 subnet 255.255.240.0 nomodify notrap


(6 Taylor) #10

Yes it is my voice network 171.16.26.0/24, but I will uncomment that line as you have suggested. Issue is that I am not able to access my server right now. Would it be then

restrict 172.16.0.0 subnet 255.255.240.0 nomodify notrap or
restrict 172.16.0.0 mask 255.255.240.0 nomodify notrap


#11

restrict 172.16.26.0 mask 255.255.255.0 nomodify notrap

There is always an issue with time :slight_smile:

watch the interactions with

tcpdump -nnvv port 123


(6 Taylor) #12

Tried the line above, and none, time is still blinking on my phones :frowning:


#13

tcpdump -nnvv port 123

?


(6 Taylor) #14

I’ve missed this. I’ll do and I’ll let you know


(6 Taylor) #15

Keeping this thread alive. I’m on a holiday from work. At the moment o get back into work, I’ll do that.

Hi, just able to get back to work now. See, there is what shows me when inputting “tcpdump -nnvv port 123”.

And it keeps on and on, showing those 172.16.26.XXX that are my voice VLAN phones.

What should I do now?. Thanks.


(Dave Burgess) #18

Your x.x.x.6 server isn’t replying, so the firewall would be the place I start. TCPDUMP sees the packets before they hit the firewall, so it’s either the FW getting in the way or your NTP Service isn’t responding on port 123.


(6 Taylor) #19

My 172.16.26.6 is my eth0, so my polycom phones are able to connect with my server, all my polycom phones are on 172.16.26.XX voice vlan. I’ve got this 172.16.26.6/24 ip interface on freepbx web GUI firewall labeled as LOCAL (LOCAL TRUSTED TRAFFIC). What should I do then?.


#20

172.16.26.6/24

Is not a valid network.
172.16.26.6 is a valid host address and 172.16.26.0/24 is a valid network.
