Ring two phones simultaneously on two UC560 routers
Posted on 2013-01-17
I have two sites. Each one has a UC560 and they are connected via a VPN tunnel. One employee is splitting his time 50/50 between the offices. Site A is the main site. When somone calls him at Site A he wants both phones to ring (Site A and Site B phone) and voicemail will stay on the Site A phone retriveable from the Site B phone.
Site A extension: 5888
Site B extension: 5988
I'm not sure how to implement this. I can create a hunt group with a pilot number and add 5888 and 5988 to it. That would ring both, but it seems like I would have to create a translation rule to forward the pilot number to 5888 in Site A. If I did that no one would be able to dial the extension internally. Voicemail also becomes an issue. He needs to be able to press the messages button and retrieve voicemail at Site A. If he can press the messages button on the Site B phone and retrieve the Site A phone voicemail that would be even better.
Looking for ideas. Thanks for the help!
