Cannot select on called Auto Attendant

When an external number is called that has an Auto Attendant, the user of a 35XX series phone cannot select any of the options using numbers. The same number is called from a cell phone or a phone at another location and the selections do work. I have looked at the VCX 200 settings as well as the V7111 8-Port FXO settings and cannot find anything wrong that could cause this to happen. The settings were compared to another of the sites using the same VCX/FXO that are configured exactly the same and these worked. Does anyone have any suggestions?

./remoteCli ums


config sipc logi=true

config cbilog loga=true



The capture logs will be in



They are:




Then turn off UMS logging by changing true to false in the above statements.


Depending on your version of VCX, the log files might be in a different place.


You can always do this:


cd /opt/3com/VCX/UMS/app

find . -name ums_cbipi.log
