Mitel 5550 Bulliten Board

The manual says “any 5550 console with a network connection can see the same bulletin board”

what it does’nt say is you need to point the console to the same txt file

This is set under tools/options/tools.

Make a network share on one of the computers running the 5550 software, create a TXT file called something like “Bulliten.txt” and point both consoles at it
