Sneak Preview – how to automatically label Avaya IP phones

I’ve been looking forward to writing up this tutorial on automatically labeling Avaya IP phones.

This is a huge part of my success as a telephone consultant. I spent many years struggling with Avaya labels and I managed to write this automatic labeling script. It’s a combination of Perl, PHP, and Apache directives. I used it thousands of times over the last four years or so.

This is a sneak preview of what’s to come. I’m really excited to share it with you.

Please let me know what you think! Roger

      Yeah – h323 only. I guess I should have made that clear. I have only been disappointed with SIP, but maybe it’s better now. Do SIP phones still pull an individual backup file from the web server? Or are labels negotiated via SIP along with the other features? Maybe this will work.

        sip has become much better in the last years – but to be honest there were still some caveats. but i don’t have my hands on avaya for a year now. until then a backup-file has been pushed and pulled from the webserver. we used an own webserver for creating config files based on requesting ip to have no effort for new customers. that was working quite good. also irmware upgrades were based on requesting ip.

    Hi. I have some Avaya 18d phones and somehow we lost our automated service. We can not access voicemail and our guest that call can not get to any extensions.
    If you can help, please email me back
