    I'm finishing up with a multiple site install, and I've ran into and slightly solved an issue to their satisfaction for being able to look up and dial extensions on the other side of the bridges.

    Location A, B, C, and D are all connected with an MLPS like network, and can reach each other without any issue. Obviously, having every extension on a BLF isn't an option. The Webclient is great, but a learning curve to some users to be able to log into, etc. Status of the extensions was not expected.

    So, I've edited the phone provisioning template per each site. I could imagine that 3CX could introduce this as a template provisioning option in their UI for those using bridges.

    I think the limit is 5 phonebooks, but it works for this install until there's a better solution suggested. All these appear in the 3CX Pbook soft button on the phone.

    In the template, scroll/find the values for the Remote Phonebook. Example of the changes I made/added below.

    Code:
    {IF network=LOCALLAN}
    remote_phonebook.data.1.url = %%PROVLINKLOCAL%%/yealink_phonebook.xml
    {ELSE}
    remote_phonebook.data.1.url = %%PROVLINK%%/yealink_phonebook.xml
    {ENDIF}
    remote_phonebook.data.1.name = Site A
    
    remote_phonebook.data.2.url = http://sitebipaddress:5000/provisioning/provstring/yealink_phonebook.xml
    remote_phonebook.data.2.name = Site B
    
    remote_phonebook.data.3.url = http://sitecipaddress:5000/provisioning/provstring/yealink_phonebook.xml
    remote_phonebook.data.3.name = Site C
    
    remote_phonebook.data.4.url = http://sitedipaddress:5000/provisioning/provstring/yealink_phonebook.xml
    remote_phonebook.data.4.name = Site D
    Obviously, you would have to change the order around on these per site.
