OBi212 Dialing Out On The POTS Phone Line — The DigiMap String You Need.

by Anura Guruge


DigitMap string you need:


You dial **70 (Area Code) xxx-xxxx to dial out on the phone line.


This is what I was told, in an e-mail, from the Polycom support person:
“The DigitMap does actually contain the **70 string. All we did was to “uncheck” “OBiTALK Settings, and ‘Submit’ the change. Once we did this, it pushed the DigitMap to your OBi device.”

<< You can see the UNCHECKED ObiTALK box in the second image below. >>

You then need the ‘Expert Interface’ — which you then need to confirm.

Then: “Physical Interfaces” -> “PHONE 1”, then under “Phone Port”.

How did I get this sorted out?

All THANKS to the person who handles the Polycom Twitter account. He/She saw my disgruntled posts and told me that they will get somebody from Ploycom support to help me.

They did.

After some phone tag and e-mails, the support person, who was VERY GOOD, just logged onto my OBi212 remotely, with my permission, and made the change. Then told me what he did. It worked. I am happy.

So, what else did I find out.

  1. The ObiTalk box is NOT unclicked in the shipped units. They will fix it.
  2. They fixed the OBi212 Trouble Ticket submitting system!

So, that is where we are. Hope this helps. I am posting this since I do NOT want others to pull out their hair like I did.

You could TRY the Trouble Ticket system. I haven’t.

The Haunting History Of ‘Canyon de Chelly’ — ‘Antelope House’ Ruins, North Rim.

Continuing the series but now on the historic side.

These ruins on the North Rim get their name from very realistically antelopes painted on the rock face to the left of the house (when looking at it). That is NOT a modern swastika. The orientation is wrong to begin with. The swastika is a very ancient symbol found among many different civilization. It invariably, as in this case, represents the circle of life.

I raved about ‘Circus Smirkus’ performance in Wolfeboro yesterday. So, I am not going to say much here because there really isn’t more I can say than: “please, go and see for yourself. You will be impressed & amazed“. This post is to share MORE pictures. However, the more I think about it and the more time I spend going back over the pictures the more impressed I am. It was quite the show — done entirely by kids. Not wizened professionals, kids who were going to school, full-time just a couple of months ago. I am sold.
