J169 Internal Auto Answer

J169 Internal Auto Answer

J169 Internal Auto Answer

We have an IP500V2 that we just installed with release 11.0.4 with J169 SIP phones release We are trying to use the Internal Auto Answer feature on the phones. I set the feature in the phone and save it. The feature will function for a short period of time and then randomly turn off. When I go back into the phone to set the feature again it will not save the setting. I hit save but when you go back into the feature it is still off. The only way o get the setting to save is to rebuild the user in Manager. It will then function again for a short period of time. Any ideas other than a software bug?

RE: J169 Internal Auto Answer

I would try and change this setting within the 46xxsettings file, in the embedded file management. Keep in mind this will happen for all phones. In order for this to occur on certain phones, they will need their own HTTP server for the specialized 46xxxsettings file

RE: J169 Internal Auto Answer

It looks like that would auto answer all calls not internal calls only?

RE: J169 Internal Auto Answer

Right, sorry - I must have read over that! I believe it is also possible to perform an internal auto answer call with short codes. You might need to set up a button in the user rights and leave the telephone number as N so it will give the caller a chance to enter the extension before dialing.

If you need 1-on-1 support or have more questions - I am available on my Facebook group for immediate responses


RE: J169 Internal Auto Answer

I have added an internal auto answer button and it is now allowing me to make changes to that feature again. I will have to wait and see if the setting stays active or not.
