I have a dozen or so traders that utilize ring down circuits. We bring these in on CO trunks and use the hotline function to get these to the endpoints. On the phones it's abrdg-appr of the analog extension that's setup with the hotline destination. We are deploying SIP phones in the next 2 months to these users and abrdg-appr is not supported on the SIP phones. I was informed about the special application SA8887 (Hotline for IP Telephones), which I've enabled. I've created an IP station and entered in the info of the Hot Line Destination. I then created a brdg-appr of this onto one of the phones and it does not work. When I press the line I just get dialtone and it doesn't ring the far end automatically. I've reverted this back to an analog station and an abrdg-appr and it works as intended. Is there a setting somewhere on the IP phone I need to change to get this working like that analog line?
