    I would say no - although I am wondering if anyone has created a Multicast listener for Windows as an external product?

    I'd be curious to see this answer to this - we just implemented multicast on our SPA504G's due to the delay, out of sync, etc., and we love it. The problem is a fair number of us use the softphone as our primary phone.

    I've done some research and haven't found anything yet.
    I wonder if a Vb.net app could do it? http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.net.sockets.multicastoption.aspx#Y1559 and

    We are on a custom yealink firmware that has a multicast listener for t38's.

    Got a link to that Yealink firmware? We have a T38G that I thought it would work on, but soon found out not the case...

    Yealink has posted a new firmware that for the T38 and T32 that supports multicast paging.

    they have? they told me June. what version?

    oh - wait - found it in their forums - but not published on the Yealink Support Site:
    http://forum.yealink.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=189&page=2

    this is my template info:
    Code:
    memory11.Line = 0
    memory11.type = 1
    memory11.Value = 239.0.0.1:50001
    memory11.DKtype = 24
    memory11.PickupValue = 
    memory11.Label = PAGE
    
    Code:
    [ cfg:/phone/config/vpPhone/MulticastPage.cfg ]
    ListenAddress1.Label = PAGE
    ListenAddress1.IPAddress = 239.0.0.1:50001
    audio.PayloadType= PCMU
    ReceivePriority.Active = 0 #Barge
    ReceivePriority.Priority = 0 #0=Disabled, or 1-10
    The Yealink forum shows another configuration that worked... I wonder if they both work or if they rewrote the Multicast feature.
