(Note: please also describe the whole steps of reproducing the issue and the exact time)


Situation 2: Randomly happened issue

If you are suffering from a randomly happened issue or need to do a long time test, phone memory will be not enough to record the complete information, please use the method below:


Capture PCAP with Wireshark:

2.   Connect the PC port of the Yealink phone to your PC and the Internet port to the network.
   On Wireshark, click Start, reproduce the issue on the phone. All the PCAP will be recorded. Then hit Stop to stop the trace.


Capture Syslog using Syslog server (please do it at the same time with PCAP):

1.   On Syslog server (use 3CDaemon as an example): configure the Syslog server and set up a directory to store the Syslog file.
2.   On the web interface of the device, go to Settings -> Configuration, set the configuration as below, and click confirm.
3.   Reproduce the issue on the Yealink phone. All the messages will be recorded to the Syslog server. When you finish issue reproduction, click stop, and you can see the Syslog in the directory that you set, as the figures shown below:
