Consultative transfer can't transfer to no answer

When we do a consultative transfer, if that party doesn't answer, we can't complete the transfer- the transfer softkey never appears.  This requires haning up the consult call, resuming the original call, and doing a blind transfer. This is very awkward. Is there a way to get the transfer softkey to appear as soon as the consult call starts?

Re: Consultative transfer can't transfer to no answer

I’ve had the same issue but assumed it wasn’t an option as the skype client can’t do it, I have found that if I set voIpProt.SIP.allowTransferOnProceeding to 1, it shows the transfer button but cuts off when you use it, I haven’t looked into this to see if this is a problem with my setup or a sip only feature. To add voIpProt.SIP.allowTransferOnProceeding defaults to 1 in SIP mode and 0 in skype mode.
