New program that tunnels Multicasts to Remote Phones

New program that tunnels Multicasts to Remote Phones

Hi All,

I don't know if it's OK to post products in the forums, but we have a V3000 phone system, and it was driving us nuts that we couldn't get Line/Extension buttons to light up on remote phones.

So we wrote a Windows program that tunnels some of the NBX's multicasts to any IP address, and can also re-multicast on the subsequent network. We concluded that there has to be a lot of people who could use this, so we decided to make it available for $70 at http://www.nbxmulticast.com

We don't expect the product to turn a profit, and that's not the purpose as our main business is successful enough -- so the $70 is merely to perhaps recoup the time spent writing it.

I hope this will solve a lot of problems for others as well. It has totally made our remote phones work like they should, because all Line/Extension lights now light up as they do at the office, and you can now also use off-the-shelf $60 VPN routers for all your off-site phones (or as in our configuration examples you can even do it without a VPN router at the remote site using a PC instead).
