I know this is a bit old but did you ever get a response back?

I've done multicast paging on yealinks and been able to get them to work.

No, unfortunately not. I tried until the wheels came off and gave up as a lost cause. Could you steer me in the right direction?
I'll give a try. At home right now so don't have the default Yealink Multicast IPs in front of me. I think one of them might be So, a Multicast IP consists of an IP address and a port...the port is 10000 in this case.

I'll explain setting it up through the phone GUI rather than a config file.
I am also using a Yealink T29G for my example so your Multicast IP settings may be in a different part of the GUI.
You will need two phones and they can both be set up with the same Multicast IP info. When one phone sends out a multicast page, even though it is listening on the same Address as other phones, it acts only to send a page.

We will use the Multicast IP
In the phone GUI, under Directory / Multicast IP, there is a Listening Address list and a Paging List numbered 1 through 10. If your phone already has IP addresses in the locations then we can use those but, for simplicity sake, the IP address in listening list #1 should be the same IP address in the paging list in #1 and so on for the remaining #'s 2 through 10.
The Labels are just for ease of identification
For example
Listening Address #1: Label: Zone 1
Paging Address #1: Label: Zone 1
Listening Address #2: Label: Zone 2
Paging Address #2: Label: Zone 2

Make sure both phones have the same Multicast IP addresses and ports (for simplicity sake in testing).

Now, you need to set up a button to send a multicast page. In the phone's GUI, go to DSS Key Line Key. Some Yealinks have different verbage than 'Line Key'. Pick a key to change and make the changes noted below.
Select Multicast Page from the Type field.
In the Value field, type the IP address
In the Label field, type Zone 1 (this is just an identifier) this could be renamed to Page All or PageFlr2.
Confirm the settings.
You should now see a button on the phone labelled Zone 1.
If you press this button, the other similarly configured phone should Beep once and you should be able to speak from your handset or speaker and hear it over the speaker of the other phone.

Hope I didn't make this too complicated.

One thing to note. The multicast paging will not normally transmit outside a firewalled subnet. I think it can be done but requires some type of translation/extra configuration.

omg thank you for making this make sense, finally got ours working!
