While reading through the release notes on the 5.5.x versions of UC, I stumbled across these new parameters getting introduced in 5.5.1. There is no Admin guide available for 5.5.0 and the admin guides for 5.6.0 and 5.7.0 still do not discuss these entries. What little information given seems to indicate that if I create a DHCP option 120 and set that field to lets say 172.16.100.1 it would use that ip as my outbound proxy. And should I need to set it to proxy.myserver.com I would need to set voIpProt.OBP.dhcpv4.type="1" in a configuration file. What is not explained is the following:
when creating option 120 in the isc dhcpd.conf what to define its type as. Should I assume that if
voIpProt.OBP.dhcpv4.type is set to 0 I would use
option sip-outbound-proxy code 120 = ip-address; option sip-outbound-proxy 172.16.100.1;
and if voIpProt.OBP.dhcpv4.type is set to 1 I would use
option sip-outbound-proxy code 120 = string; option sip-outbound-proxy "proxy.myserver.com";
It also does not indicate what effect this will have if the phone config already has reg.x.outboundProxy.address defined as some other value. Does dhcp override the config? or does the config override dhcp? Same question for voIpProt.SIP.outboundProxy.address
welcome to the Polycom Community.
This seems to be missing from the Admin Guide and I raise this internally.
It overwrites the voIpProt.SIP.outboundProxy.address parameter. So the reg.* parameters would over ride it, but it would be used for any registration that didn’t over ride it in the reg.* parameters.
