CUCiMOC (pronounced Cookie Mock) is an acronym for Cisco UC integration for Microsoft Office Communicator and was publicly released for download on July 13th. For those of you who may not have heard of or are not that familiar with CUCiMOC, it allows your MOC client to integrate directly with Unified communications Manager 7.x (actually 6.1.3 and later)….WITHOUT Cisco Unified Presence (CUPS).

Hunt groups are a great CUCM feature. However,  Cisco does not support call pickup or group pickup for hunt groups by default. Luckily, there is a workaround. To enable pickup for calls directed to a hunt group (hunt pilot, hunt list, line group) , enter bug ID “CSCsb42763″ into into the System > Enterprise Parameters > “Cisco Support Use 1″ field.

WOW! It has been quite awhile since I have made a post. Let me first apologize for that. As Josh had stated, both of us have been very busy with various things (family, work, study etc). For those of you who had been following my progress with my CCIE Voice studies may remember back in February when I had stated that I was able to secure a lab seat in RTP for one last attempt at the voice lab before blueprint changes were going to be made mid-July.

In this tutorial, you will learn a couple ways to connect a physical router to your home phone line as part of your “virtual voice lab “.  An all virtual voice lab would be ideal. However, real hardware is necessary for a more complete voice lab. I will be using a 2611XM for my home lab, but you can use just about any Cisco router with a couple fxs and fxo ports.

Completed Lab 2 last night, and I have to say, a definite increase in difficulty level from lab 1. I actually had no idea how to configure one of the tasks initially, but was able to complete the task based on a solution I read on Online Study List.

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I myself had a great Holiday season. I always look forward to this time of year and getting to spend time with family and friends. I had every intention to take a couple of days off and not think about voice labs, but I just couldn’t stay away. I actually spent time doing some labs on both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Now before you say “What is wrong with this guy, on Christmas?” Let me clarify by saying, It was only for a couple of hours, and I had 100% approval from the “boss” (yes my wife :-) ).

Here at Blindhog.net, we have issued tutorials for connecting Windows or Linux to a physical network using gns3, but apparently, there is a little difference for MacOSX.  I recently received an email from one of our readers, Ivan Pletenev. Ivan describes how to connect GNS3 to internet through wifi-interface in MacOSX. You will find his writeup below. Thanks Ivan!

Well, the big news today in the CCIE world is that Cisco has finally announced the much anticipated changes to the CCIE Voice Lab read here. Although I have placed a lot of time in my preparations for the current voice lab, I feel this change is way over due and definitely needed. Not only will it bring the exam contents more in line with what we are deploying in the real world, we can finally get rid of some of those things that are EOS and outdated ( later 6500CatOS, and don’t forget to take your whacked out QoS with ya! )

With Callmanager, partitions and calling search spaces are utilized for implementing calling restrictions and creating closed dial groups. But what happens when in SRST? During SRST, any call restrictions defined within Callmanager will not apply and all devices will have unrestricted dialing. COR resolves this issue. COR (Class of Restriction) is a Cisco IOS voice gateway feature that enables calling privileges to be applied and is most commonly used with Callmanager Express and SRST.
