Phonebook entries; using IP
« on: January 26, 2016, 04:14:07 PM »
I run GXP-1620's through a router; no PBX or switch.  All calls made & received are via IP address dialing (192.168.x.x)
This is working fine.

I want to set up phonebook entriess of these IP addresses commonly called, but can't seem to get the "Number" field to allow IP address input.  Is there a way to Phonebook dial a call that is an IP address ?

It's not surprising that this doesn't work, as phonebook entries don't have punctuation.

One thing to look at is whether IP calling is enabled:

      Settings->Call Features->Disable Direct IP Call

Though that is no doubt set right since you seem to be able to dial manually.

Another possibility is to enable "quick IP mode", which lets you dial just the last part of the IP address, which wouldn't require punctuation.  Enable this (it's disabled by default):

      Settings->Call Features->Use Quick IP Call Mode

and see if, for the IP address 192.168.1.57, dialing 57 or 057 works, then try putting those digits in the phonebook.  It might work.  I'm too lazy to try it myself, but we all would appreciate hearing how you make out...

Did you ever solve this topic? I have several GXP1630 with 1.0.4.46 firmware and can't store IP address 192.0.0.120, or quick IP Adress #120 in the phone.
So how do you make Direct IP Call using Phonebook?

Thank you!

you can use speed dial for this
*47IP

Example:
*47192*168*1*72


No option from phonebook.
Life is waste of time

Hi,

I run two GXP1630 with 1.0.4.46/beta and four GXP1630 1.0.4.33 firmware. Help Desk informed me that 1.0.4.46 doesn't support Direct IP Call with Phonebook or MPK.
I have tried and with *47 i can make a call with MPK but not using Phonebook on this firmware.
With 1.0.4.33 is the situation the same, only *47 works when using MPK for direct IP call.

Does anybody know how how to make Direct IP call using Phonebook with GXP1630?
Thanks!

Hi,

After disusing the problem with Direct IP Call using MPK and Phonebook with Help Desk, it came out, that this features are not supported.
