    Hi,
     
    I'd like to know if is it possible to login into IP Communicator or IP HardPhone with an AD User.
     
    I'd like to unlock Windows and login into IP Comm or HardPhone with the same user through application or service.
     
    Thanks a lot.

    Hi Victor,
    PLease check out Parsec's MARS PC SYNC Cisco IPT application at
    http://www.parsec-tech.com/utility_applications.html#MarsPCSync
     
    The application should fulfill your requirements.
     

    <h1 style="margin-left: .25in; text-align: justify; text-indent: -.25in; mso-list: l0 level1 lfo1; tab-stops: list .25in;">Application Overview</h1>
    MARS PCSync is a utility application for Cisco
    Extension Mobility users which allows synchronization of the user Cisco IP
    Phones with his workstation PC.
     
    In real world scenarios users normally forget to
    log onto their phones while coming to the office and log out while not in the
    desk.
    PCSync facilitates automatic EM (Extension
    Mobility) log-in to configured Cisco IP Phone while the user log into the organization
    domain through workstation and automatic EM log-out of the IP phone when the
    user logs out of the domain.
     
    If the user locks his workstation then
    simultaneously the IP Phone is also locked out. In this locked state only
    incoming calls and configured outgoing calls are only allowed, thus preventing
    misuse of the phone in his absence.
    If the user unlocks his workstation then
    simultaneously the IP phone also gets unlocked.
     
    Advantages of MARS PCSync along with Cisco
    Extension Mobility (EM)

     
    EM: With Extension Mobility if the user forgets to
    logout his EM profile while leaving his desk then the phone is left open for
    unauthorized usage.
    EM+PCSync: With Parsec’s MARS PCSync application this is
    solved as the application can be configured to lock the phone automatically on
    PC lock action.
     
    EM: To prevent misuse of a phone in his absence a
    user needs to logout his EM profile before leaving his desk and from then on
    all further incoming calls will be directly diverted to his voice mail.
    In such a case any person calling (might be
    customer/boss) might have the impression that the person is not in office.
    EM+PCSync: If Mars PCSync is present then all the
    incoming calls will land on the phone and on not being answered the call will
    be diverted to the voice mail. Thus the case of not in office status can be
    avoided.
     
    EM: To prevent misuse of a phone in his absence a
    user needs to logout his EM profile before leaving his desk. On returning to
    his desk the employee has to check each of his voice mail to know the calls he
    has missed.
    EM+PCSync: If MARS PCSync is present then the employee on
    returning to his desk can see the list of missed calls at the click of a
    button.
     
    EM+PCSync: With MARS PCSync if required the employee can
    ask his colleague to answer an important call which he is expecting when he is
    not in his desk which will not be possible by logging out his EM profile
    because the call will not land on the phone.

    The Extension Mobility XML API can be used to programmatically log users in/out of a device: http://developer.cisco.com/web/emapi/docs

    Hi Pranjol,

    I read the PC Sync Utility pdf, but I'd like to know if is it possible to develop?

    What API should I use?

    Thanks for help. I hope you can help me!

    I've done that, using the CTI OS Toolkit, but do not know if is possible with CallManager, because the concept is little different.
