Analog Ring Count

Analog Ring Count

Analog Ring Count

Does anybody know how to make a V3000 answer on the third ring instead of the first?  I'm trying to incorporate an automatic fax switch.

RE: Analog Ring Count

If im correct, can you adjust the inbound timer count to increment for the 3 rings that you need?  Go into the NetSet utility and go into System Setting and Timers.
I will be curious to see if that works.

RE: Analog Ring Count

Thanks, buffs.  There's nothing in the call timers that affects the number of rings before an auto attendant answers - at leat not in 5.0.6.  I did get around it by sending that one line card port to the ATA port (we're not using it for anything on this system), then setting the call coverage for that user to the AA.  This way it rings 3 before the AA picks up and gives me the time I need to do what I had to do.

Another option that I found is to map a button on a phone to that line card port, then set the Time Out value on the port > modify screen for the amount of time that you want it to wait.  This is a little cleaner, but burns a button on a phone somewhere.

Thanks again for the reply!!

RE: Analog Ring Count

You must create a virtual telephone using a virtual mac-address , then you must create hunt-group a type calling group where as overflow it associates the AA and it manages the Time-out of how many time before going in coverage (remembers you to exclude the log-out if not answer), to this point checks autoextension of the trunk on the calling group.
