Polycom VVX600 does not pair with PC

Hi, My Phone does not pair with PC. 
Phone is Polycom VVX600. 
The phone works independently. SfB works from the PC, I can make calls using headset. However VVX does not appear in list of audio device in SfB on PC. 
I rebooted phone and restarted PC but it did not help. It happened when we have phone software version 5.6.0.17.325 and BtoE version 3.6.0. Then I tried to update phone software to 5.7.0 and BtoE to 3.7.0, but it didn't help. Also tried to disable ipv6, added Polycom BToE Connector is an allowed program. Nothing helped
PC OS: Windows 10 
Current software version: 5.7.0 
BtoE app version: 3.7.0 

Logs for 5.6.0:

Re: Polycom VVX600 does not pair with PC

Hi,

I added required ports(from post BToE Firewall ports) to allow firewall rule, but it didn't help.

One more thing on the phone a message says: 

Device update available
Current Version 5.7.0.11768
Version on server: 5.6.17325
Inactivity timeout: 900 secs

 

 

After that timeout the phone was automatically downgraded to 5.6.

 

I'm appreciate any help to solve the issue!

Re: Polycom VVX600 does not pair with PC

Hello @Andriy,

a couple of questions:

 

  • Is this an on Premise Skype deployment or O365 Skype for Business online?

    A software would be hosted on either platforms so please work with your Administrator and check :

    Feb 02, 2016 Question:How can I prevent a Polycom VVX Business Media Phone to be downgraded / upgraded automatically via Skype for Business and/or Office365?

    Resolution:For LYNC please download, unpack and import the attached lyncDeviceUpdateEnabledOFF.zip. For Skype for Business Online / O365 please set the EnableDeviceUpdate to false as explained => here <=

  • Did this ever work and what has changed ?

  • Are you using any AntiVirus or Firewall ?
    Are you allowing the PLink Application access?

    Yes, this worked(BToE 3.6, phone 5.6), but in about 20 days the phone didn't pair with PC.

    Windows Defender, standard Windows Firewall
    Are you allowing the PLink Application access?
    Yes

Re: Polycom VVX600 does not pair with PC

Hello @Andriy,

The next step would be a ticket.

In order to raise a support ticket you need to work with your Polycom reseller as they need to do this for you.

End Customers are unable to open a ticket directly with Polycom support.

If this is some sort of an Internet discounter please post either your phone's MAC address or your Polycom devices serial so I can look up who would be able to support you. This may not be who you purchased the Polycom device from.

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.
