Polycom HDX 8000 - BFCP doesn't work if AES Encryption is ON

I am using a Polycom HDX 8000 version Release -


I need to enabled TLS for SIP and AES Encryption . Making a SIP call to my server .

My Server accepting encrypted audio,  encrypted video and m=application for BFCP .

However the Polycom HDX device doesn't respond with third video channel for BFCP. It also doesn'  send any audio and video to my server


The same scenario works fine when TLS and AES Encryption is off .


The other scenario which works is when my server rejects BFCP offer from Polycom by setting m=application port to 0. In this case the encrypted audio and video work fine with audio and video working both ways between the Polycom and  my server


I am unable to understand what is problem when BFCP is enabled.

Hello sagarjoshi,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

Using an no longer supported software when we have released Software 3.0.6 is not a good start. Please use a currently supported software.

This also allows yourself and others to check against current software release notes, Administrator Guides or FAQ post’s.


If you can still replicate this using a currently supported software then the next step is to open a Support Ticket via your Polycom reseller.


Only this way we can actively work on diagnosing this and providing a fix in our software and potentially a hotfix for this.

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

Best Regards

Steffen Baier
