Make sure that the phones are allowed to dial feature codes like **1234. On the SPA525G, you must modify the dialplan in the phone’s configuration (set it to something like (*xx.|**xx.|xx.)).

The Attendant Console

Attendant Console Call Pickup Code: **# (feature code for Directed Call Pickup + #, # will be replaced by the extension number). If you set it to *8 (feature code forAsterisk General Call Pickup), the console will pick _any_ ringing phone, so if two of them are ringing at the same time, you don’t know which one will get chosen.

Unit keys: fnc=sd+cp+blf;sub=extension@server;nme=extension

Example: fnc=sd+cp+blf;sub=1742@192.168.3.156;nme=1742
