Remote Phone Book - I'm in multiple troubles
Hi Folks, hi Yealink,

I've searched all through this forum and the internet. Now I'm definitely stuck.

The main issue is, that I can't get a connection to the remote xml phone book from the handheld. I'm stuck with the "Connect Error" Message.

Through out my re-search I've run over multiple definitions on how the xml should be structured.

The built-in template of the W56P station is as follows:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8' ?>
<contact display_name="john" office_number="123456" mobile_number="123456" other_number="123456" line="0" ring="" group_id_name="0" default_photo="Default:default_contact_image.png" selected_photo="0" is_favorate="0"/>

BUT this is completely different of all found threads here in this forum as well as some stuff found on the internet site of yealink.

QUESTION 1: How must the XML be structured for W56P?

I've a Synology as NAS, where the phone book (should) be accessible for the W56P. As of now, everything I've tried so far had no trouble to access the XLM file by the URL xxx.xx.xx.105/contacts.xlm. Only the W56P continues with the error message "Connect Error" on the mobile device.

QUESTION 2: Is there any advice on the web UI of the W56P (Directory / Remote Phone Book) which I must follow to get the connection working from the mobile device? Or do I need to configure something somewhere else?

Grateful for any help getting me over this hurdle. Thanks.
