UCM6204 for home use. 12 extensions, 3 SIP Trunks, 5 DID/DODs
We have a bunch of teenagers and instead of getting them all cell phones, found it cheaper to do it this way. and I have more control of who and when they call (Evil dad). And besides I used 1 of the extensions for when I work from home, and i use the PBX as my sandbox to try and better understand UCM for when im at work.
I’m running into issues or I am not completely understanding how I did it (doesnt do it anymore) and how to set it back up to work regularly.
At work we will have Zoom meetings, WebEx Meetings or some people will just have a regular SIP account and want or do a 1 on 1 video call. When I first setup my PBX i was somehow able to dial a zoom call by doing something like email@example.com. Worked great, didn’t think much of it. Days and weeks later adding a few SIP trunks, a few more extensions and now trying to get everything live/production I can’t dial or connect to the meetings the same way.
I do not want to use the Zoom/Webex app on the phone. I believe some of the phones I have, are too old and can’t have the apps installed. And the fact that the phone I did do the zoom call on, wasn’t using the app.
So my questions are is there an outbound rule I did not setup properly to understand firstname.lastname@example.org or does it have to be an IP address only which would suck trying to dial a SIP extension/phone doing SIP2SIP.
I did enable IP Call on my and a few extensions, but that is looking for an IP address only, which I am assuming for internal LAN which doesnt help me. And when we have some of these meetings my job will say using any SIP h.323 device dial in using the following number
So from Zoom’s page their SIP dialing format is as follows:
SIP Dial String Format
The full SIP dial string format:
[Meeting ID].[Passcode].[Layout].[Host Key]@[IP Address]
[Meeting ID].[Passcode].[Layout].[Host Key]@zoomcrc.com
