Increase Call Timeout on a Common Area Phone in Lync 2010

When a Common Area Phone (Hot-desk) is dialled and the call is unanswered, the call disconnects after 20 seconds by default. This number can be increased using the SEFAUtil tool.
Solution
SEFAUtil.exe /server:lyncserver.domain.com user@domain.com /enablefwdnoanswer

/callanswerwaittime:40
