I just copied and pasted the url from the berbee site ( the service URL on the IP Phone services config page. I just tried it from my phone and got an error the first time, but then I entered the zip again and it worked, they may be having problems on their side.

I tried that, and again when I try the service on the phone it tells me Host not found. Not sure why it is not working. Do I need anything else in the url.

Have you tried to use the Cisco Asp files to set up for the weather. I tried using the weatherzipinput.asp sample file that cisco has and I get the prompt to enter a zip code or city or state...I put that in and then it comes back with unable to access url. I need to see how I have to edit the asp file to put the correct url.

I'm pretty sure that the code for those files is old and that the links to whatever weather site it uses is no longer good.

Oh ok...when I try the berbee link the phone goes out and I see it requesting but then times out and comes back with host not found. I have dns on I can ping the site fine not sure why not working. Is there any way I can give you a call. I really need to try and get this up an running.
