sntp config preventing vvx 501 from dialing more that 6 digits

Hi All 

When configuring the tcpIpApp.sntp.address attribute on VVX 501, the handset will not dial any number larger than 6 digits. However when this attribute is removed, this issue is resolved and the phone will dial numbers longer than 6 digits.

 

This does not seem to be taking place on VVX 500 handsets.

 

I have tested this behaviour with the following UC releases:

5.5.4

5.6.1

5.7.0.11768

 

VVX 501 details:

BootBlock 3.0.5.0131

BootL1 1.0.0.0011

Updater 5.7.4.1297

 

Please any assistance would be really appreciated. I have already spent hours trying to troubleshoot this issue...

Re: sntp config preventing vvx 501 from dialing more that 6 digits

On further troubleshooting this issue seems to be more convoluted than first thought.

 

To be clear, the following bug seems to affect:

- VVX 501 handsets (under the same conditions a vvx 500 and vvx 601 do not fault)

- Running UC version 5.5.2 and newer (fault can be replicated on 5.5.2, 5.5.4, 5.6.1 and 5.7.0)

 

To replicate fault, set the following attributes (with all else left as per default):

1. Set reg.1.server.1.address to the SIP server however FQDN must be a DNS SRV record not an A record

2. Set reg.1.address and reg.1.auth.userId to be a username that has 12 characters or more.

 

3. Set tcpIpApp.sntp.address to the FQDN of the time server ie "pool.ntp.org"

 

Result: VVX handset will not dial numbers larger than 6 digits (ie. no SIP packets are sent to the SIP server, the phone instead just hangs silently in the dial screen).

 

This issue can be resolved by changing req.1.server.1.address to a FQDN with a DNS A record 

OR

Removing tcpIpApp.sntp.address from the config file and factory resetting the phone.

 

This issue was replicated on several VVX 501 handsets, all had the same BootBlock and BootL1 builds, as follows:

 

BootBlock 3.0.5.0131 (48500-001)

BootL1 1.0.0.0011 (48500-001)

Updater 5.7.4.1297

 

Tested Handset MAC addresses are:

64167F11F32F

64167F1F08F8

64167F1F08CB

64167F1F092C

Issue was resolved with the following setting:

 

net.interface.mtu = 1360

 

Default MTU size on VVX501 is too large for certain routers.
