Receiving/Making External Calls with Cisco Call Manager 4.0

Q: Receiving/Making External Calls with Cisco Call Manager 4.0

I have got a Cisco 1760 Voice Router, a 2950 Cisco Switch, a Cisco Call Manager 4.0, Cisco IP Phones and an external PSTN line.

Now, how do I get all these guys connected so I can make/receive external calls. ie Use my IP Phone through my Call Manager to make calls to public phones and at the same time receive calls from public phones on my Cisco IP Phones.


Preferred Solution: Receiving/Making External Calls with Cisco Call Manager 4.0

I recommend downloading and running Outlook PST Repair. It's a PST repair tool that I've used it in the past to recover emails, contacts, tasks and notes from corrupt Outlook files that are damaged or inaccessible. Supports Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/1bjhSi. (This link will automatically start a download of Outlook PST Repair that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,I have Yoga P40, which has a SIM slot that utilizes the built-in Sierra Wireless EM7455 module. I'm successfully able to connect to the internet via the module. Is there also a way of making/receiving phone calls/SMS messages on Windows 10?  I did a lot of research but I haven't found any app or solution. Please do not guess and reply only if you know the answer.

So I am having a major problem and may lose my job if I can't get this fixed. I am an appt setter who receives calls at home through my computer. I have a cisco vpn that connects into work for the calls and they have me running an iwatsu softphone. I am connected through comcast cable internet. The problem is when I get calls in especially third party calls that get trasferred in when I answer I cannot hear the caller but apparently they hear me? I did have a router hooked up but took that off and am now connected directly to the comcast modem. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm not quite sure their tech dept can help me at all since I have tried several times with them. I call comcast and they say its not them of course.

Hi, I hope someone can help me. I have a dial up connection with a 56K voice modem and until a few weeks ago a sound of a phone ringing and a grey pop up box used to appear in the top left hand corner of my screen if someone was trying to ring whilst I was connected. It used to say "incoming call, and give me the choice to either answer the call which would disconnect me from the net or ignore the call in which case it would say "internet connection resuming". For some reason though it now has disappeared and I have contacted my ISP and they said it was nothing they had done. I am now at a loss as to how to get it back. It didn't have any other features like caller ID or answer phone, just simply the ability to answer or ignore and certainly wasn't costing me anything. I live in NZ, can anyone help? (PS, I do have call waiting)

Lately I have been receiving calls telling me my computer has been compromised and is operating at less than 100%. Of course the caller, who is not a native English speaker, offers to guide me through what I need to do to fix it. They state they are calling
from Microsoft. What kind of scam is this?

@ramlinred Yes - Scam.  Good catch. HP does not keep track of YOUR computer to see if you have downloaded something "bad" from a website. Likely the phone calls are just evil-doers fishing for victims by placing calls to a bunch of different phone numbers. Do not pick up the call, do not talk to these people.  "Tom" is not a nice man. If you cannot resist talking to these people, understand that just by answering the phone you are encouraging them. Do NOT give any random person calling you ANY personal information; the results of doing so might ruin your life as you know it.  When you see a Post that helps, inspires, provides fresh insight,or teaches you something new, click the Thumbs Up on that Post.Fixed / Answered?

Hi there!
When making calls through Outlook, the person on the other end can't hear me.

I'm trying to use a Logitech USB microphone with Outlook 2003 on my XP to make calls. I can make the call, connect, and hear the person on the other end. They just can't hear me. The microphone works with Sound Recorder on XP and my attempts to troubleshoot haven't fixed anything. Any suggestions?

I have a "virutual office" and use a lot of tools on the internet, including some things like Skype, so it's great to have MalwareByte watching out for me and blocking intruders. However, I just had an interesting scare when I saw an OUTBOUND connection to a malicious site get blocked. The blocked IP is is and I looked it up here:


So of course, when I saw it was OUTBOUND not inbound, I wanted to know what might have been comprimized. The offending program was CCDash. At first, I thought, did some cash-dash malware get installed? But no, it's the Intel Wi-Fi dashboard, which is odd by itself and I never use Wi-Fi, as I am wired by ethernet all the time.

So can anyone suggest what might be happening, why? and other than the usual virus scans (which all show clean, and I use several programs for this), what should I consider as next steps? The port number was 8.

A:Why is CCDash making calls to a malicious site?

MBAM doesn't block intruders, a firewall does Also MBAM is not an AV, do you have a dedicated AV software? MSE will suffice in your case.

The IP is for WebPhone - Save on Calls with VoIP, the link gets loaded but entering the IP result in the behavior you describe. However, I am not exactly sure what's going on. I will ask for moving this to Security section, as it is better suited there.

I have downloaded Cisco Anyconnect VPN Client in the last few days. My Internet on my Netbook (Samsung NC10) has gone dramatically slower - both on Firefox and IE. I have Windows XP. It's not the fault of the wireless, as Internet is slow regardless of which wireless connection I use.

So just to clarify what you said, game play seems jerky? Is it jerky when you are standing still looking at one point, or does it only jerk when you are turning? If its the latter, it may just be a case of low fps while turning. I understand you have the 9800GX2, but from what I've read, that card hasn't been performing as it should in some cases.

Home system getting was getting really slow and doing strange things like putting additional buttons (BHOs?) in InternetExplorer (IE). Also very slow and often had to click buttons several times to get the mouse to register. Thought it was a dirty mouse but cleaning it made no difference. Also it would open different web sites (porn mostly) and download who knows what. Popups galore etc. Sometimes it would go to different websites than intended. Looking back on it that may have occurred more than at first thought, since some are similar to the intended site so you don't always notice so much. Other times it wouldn't open a website (acted like it didn't exist) and just displays blank. Suspected spyware infection or worse. Downloaded Ad-Aware and that found tons at first and inproved it alot. But still would continue to get more infections every time on the net. This state persisted for last 4 or 5 months. Then a few days ago I was on the system late at night looking at stock accounts and other stuff on the network. System acting VERY strange. Closing stock website window automatically, having to click many times to get stuff to react etc. Thought it was just windows sucking wind some more (it always gets slower the longer you use it you know). Took a break and just sat for about 5 minutes half falling asleep when suddenly the mouse started moving and clicking stuff etc. Very wild.

Just wondering if anyone has experience of connecting Cisco Nexus 5548UPs (or any device in the N5K range) to Cisco Prime Data Center Network Manager (DCNM)? We are migrating from end of row MDS9500's to top of rack N5K's and the legacy Fabric Manager we were using to manage the zone sets on the MDS's doesn't work with the N5K's so we need to move to DCNM.

I've been able to get the MDS 9500's connected as a DCNM data source but can't get a N5K to connect. Some detail of the N5K addition process:

Go to Admin > Data Sources
Fabric Seed Switch = IP of Mgmt 0 on N5K
Auth-Privacy = tried all options
User name = tried local and RADIUS user accounts
Password = as appropriate
Limit discovery by VSAN = unticked
Enable NPV discovery = ticked (default)

When trying the various local and AAA accounts, I can see the requests hitting the ACS server and being authorised. I've tried removing the AAA config on the N5K's which made no difference when trying local accounts.

The errors we get vary depending on which Auth-Privacy setting is used - sometimes it's a timeout message "Discovery is taking longer than 2 minutes. Please return later to check status in table", sometimes "Cannot authenticate snmp user:null/<ipAddress> Unknown User or Password" <- This one is interesting, why does it say "user:null"?

Does anyone have experience of this? If so, would you mind sharing any ... Read more

A:Cisco Prime Data Center Network Manager & Nexus 5K

It's been a while since I've played with the Nexus and MDS switches. The issue I had was when the N5010 first came out. I wasn't able to get the zoning I set up on the MDS 9216i to replicate across to the N5010. I ended up having to do everything manually.

I recently purchased a N5010 for my home lab. I haven't had time to fully spin it up with DCNM yet. But I wouldn't be able to help you much as I'll be either breaking out the FC traffic on Brocade switches or coming off of the N5010 with native FC as I have the FC module installed in the switch.

Sorry I couldn't be much help.

I don't know how you have this modem connected. But the "proper" way is via a serial console server with a built in modem.

The solution I've used and know will work is from Raritan. Specifically their SX line of console servers.

I recently bought this Gateway computer and initially when I clicked on the IE icon I was on the internet instantly.

Now, when I click on the icon I get a mostly white screen with a task bar but nothing else. I get the swirling thing but nothing loads. The window won't close. When I finally do a control, alt, del and the task manager comes up, a few seconds later the IE screen loads. I get a Google screen but if I click on one of my Favorites it won't load without the control, alt, delete scenario.

If I go to one of my email accounts, they may or may not load (Hotmail is particularly bad). I usually get the swirling thing forever. Until I do another control, alt, del I go nowhere.

I gave my external hard drive to a friend but his laptop didn't recognize it. after getting it back, I connected it to my laptop but it didn't show up in disk management at all. the drive is receiving power since the light is on. I felt the drive upon connecting to laptop and noticed it tries multiple times to rotate the magnetic disk but in the end it come to a stop and nothing after that. I think my friend's laptop somehow damaged my drive since I'm sure it's a hardware problem.
So, I was wondering maybe any of you guys have an idea how to fix it if possible otherwise, I'd like to know if I can recover the data without spending for the experts?

Two of my USB external Hard drives, a Fantom 600 GB and a Western Digital My Book 500GB cannot be seen in My Computer. I can see them in Device Manager and that says that they are working properly and the drivers are up to Date. In Disk Manager the 2 external drives had a black bar unlike the other drives which had blue bars. The 2 external disks had a number assigned to them but no letter.

I have tried diskpart in the command prompt, was able to assign a letter, then had to format the drives and they did show up in My computer as valid empty external hard drives with the correct amount of space on them. But when I tried to recover the backed up data for one of the disks (less than a third of the capacity of either drive) they went back to not being recognized by My Computer ans in disk manager had a black line with no letter again.

I just went through that process again, got both drives back and tried to recover the backed up files to my Fantom drive and lost the Fantom drive once again.

I am attaching screen shots of my current My Computer (Computer in 7) Device Manager and Disk Manager. In Device Manager you can see the Fantom. The My Book is the WD 5000AAV. In Disk Manager the My Book shows healthy with Disk 1 and the letter L. The Fantom is Disk 2 with no letter and a black bar. In My computer, the My Book is there but not the Fantom.

A:External drives show in Device Manager & Disk Manager but not Computer

Hi Dick1030,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Please do as follows:

1. It is unusual for the System Reserved Partition to have a drive letter. Please remove the drive letter.

2. Please remove (always Safely Remove) all the external drives including any card reader and do a drive cleanup as indicated here. http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/298744-usb-thumb-drives-not-recognised-not-drive-letter.html#post2477076 It will clean your system of all non-present devices and you will be starting with a clean slate.(Incidentally this can resolve many drive letter assignment confusion of Windows OS, as you can see in the referenced thread.)

3. After you reboot on completion of the drive cleanup, plugin only your WD My Book and the Fantom drive. As you plug-in the driver for each device will be installed ab-initio. You can watch it.

4. Now take a screenshot of the Disk Management and post. While taking the screenshot, click on "Show/Hide Console Tree” and “Show/Hide Action Pane” buttons on the toolbar on top to hide those and also pull up the center partition line up as much as possible so that we get a clear and full view.

5. Also tell us whether you are sure that you had formatted the Fantom drive and it contains data and whether you want to recover the data..

(Your statements and the screenshots are so confusing - atleast to me - it is necessary that you do the above and restate the problem.)

Yesterday, I started a download and kept the pc on with my Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex External HDD 1TB plugged in. After I woke up I realized that there was a power cut and the computer went off unexpectadly (I had no UPS or any backup system).And, I found that my Ext HDD was not seen in my computer anymore (It was working perfectly until before I went to bed).
In device manager, under 'Disks' it shows 'GoFlex Hard Disk', but in BIOS or Disk Manager there is no sign of this HDD.

I really need the data in the HDD badly. Please help me recover it.
P.S. I read somewhere that keeping the HDD in freezer might help and give a little more time. Is that true? Worth the risk?

A:External HDD gets detected in Device Manager but not Disk Manager or seen in 'My Computer'

Power outage probably killed something in the enclosure or its PSU. The drive in the enclosure is probably fine. I would remove the drive from the enclosure and put it in a dock or install it in a desktop computer before considering freezing it. Freezing is usually reserved for click of death drives, and a last ditch effort.

I purchased a MAxtor 120GB (USB 2.0) external HD a while back to store my files. (WinXP SP1 only 384MB RAM Sony Vaio)However, I have attempted to delete certain folders and/or files. The error I get reads "Cannot delete: Cannot Read From Source File or Disk". Also, it renames the folders to a bunch of really really weird shapes/etc. such as "???fg?m?.~??". I try to rename these and/or delete them and I get the same error as before. These seem to be rather huge files & folders taking up precious space. How can I get rid of these items?

A:Receiving Strange Errors When Attempting to Delete From External HD

How is the external drive formatted? You most likely have a bad filesystem there (no wonder with FAT32). Run a disk check on it and hope that things will be fixed.

You should use NTFS for the filesystem and always stop the device before removing it from the system.

The topic pretty much says it all. One user in our office can send to anyone she wants and receive internal mail, but can't receive external mail. Email tracking says that she is receiving the mail, there are no error messages to her or the senders, and it's not an outlook problem (or not just an outlook problem) because it's not appearing in webmail either. Help?

Currently whatever is on my computer won't let me access Windows Update. The last updates I would have had are a few days ago using automatic updating.

I first had a problem when i opened an old video file and the computer tried opening Limewire (I had previously removed it from my system). Soon I lost my Notification area Icons and couldnt open Task Manager. I got an error on a dll called hyiobokr.dll in the Windows\System32 directory.

Very soon popups for Vista Antivirus and Spybot Activescan showed up, with others as well. All these were closed without accessing anything on them.

I performed the actions in your first five steps, I now have the Notification Items back and can call up Task Manager. I still have random popups occurring when I am using the web browser and even when I am not using it. I use IE 7 and Firefox 3.

I have several Excel workbooks that all use the same VBA code. Rather than place the same code in each workbook file, I would like to place the VBA code in a single external text file and have each workbook reference and call the VBA code in that file. In this way, if the code needs to change, I can change the code in just one place rather than having to change the code in each Excel file. Note that I cannot combine the separate Excel workbooks into one workbook where each Excel file is a separate worksheet.) How can separate Excel workbooks call the VBA code in a single external file?

A:Excel - Workbook call VBA code in external file?

I think you can do this with "Application.Run", but both workbooks need to be open.http://www.rondebruin.nl/win/s9/win001.htm

I'm making my own external HDD with one that doesn't work anymore (HDD is ruined).

It's from a Western Digital WD2500 MyBook Essentials, with a Western Digital WD2500JB Caviar SE 250GB IDE HDD in it. The drive I replaced it with is a Seagate Barracuda 160GB IDE.

My computer (Using Windows Vista Home Basic) detects it as an external HDD, but it looks for drivers for it, and as far as I know, there are none, so it doesn't show up in My Computer as a HDD.

I don't have it hooked up right now, so I cannot verify this right now, but I believe it is listed under Other Devices in the Device Manager.

Is there any way to make the HDD work? Are the drivers for the HDD itself or the IDE to USB adapter?

I have a Cisco catalyst 3500xl I ran the standard installation and entered a ip subnet and gateway that's all i'm new to Cusco but I want my ports all have internet access but not sure how

A:[solved] Cisco switch configure Cisco catalyst 3500xl

First question is what type of ISP service do you have and how many devices? If you want to connect 5 devices, you'll need 5 static IPs from your ISP. The reason is that 3500xl switch is a layer 2 switch only. Which means there is no routing /layer 3 functionality.

I have a problem of taskbar poping randomy in the middle of a full screen video, and automatically going back to desktop while playing full screen games.

Reading this post I used EVENTVWR. Here is the result :
There was nothing under 'Application Hang' that matches the time I had the problem.

Service control manager looks guiltier. There is more events under Error, and a lot of timestamps matching the problem under 'windows logs > System'.

How can I fix this ?
Thanks for any help =)
EDIT : everytime this happen I go check the 'windows logs > System' and there is a new event. Either it really is the problem or it is created by me checking it

A:Service control manager is making taskbar to pop

Check this one too event id 7036 flood

Yours don't seem to flood that much but never know.

Which service/s start-stop, does it show in the events?
