My workplace uses Cisco IP communicator as a softphone for employees.
I have found it to be quite unreliable for receiving incoming calls. When my wife calls me, she intermittently gets forwarded straight to my voice-mail (which implies that there is a disconnect between the client and server). Sometimes she will have to try and call 3-4 times before it starts ringing on my PC.
I suspect this is a flapping issue of some sort where the client is constantly being disconnected from the server for short periods of time, and if the incoming phone call comes at a time when it is connected properly, my phone will ring.
Today when I came into work, there was the following message on my screen:
Windows has detected an IP address conflict ...
It sounds like this could be connected. Any recommendations?
