Unable to get Authorization working for Screenshot or Execute

I have got a couple of smalls apps in the works and thought they would be small little apps.

First I needed to do screenshots of the 7960 screen so that I can create some training documentation. So I created a simple asp file and installed it on my apache server. The file is as follows:








From IE I type and I get a login box. I type in the credentials and I get the ol' PHone error 4.

In addition I removed the special Auth URL and verified I could log into the phone via CCMUser with the appropriate credentials after creating a device association. However, If I then try to access the Screenshot page I get the Phone Error 4 again. I sniffed the packets and this shows the interaction from the phone to the AuthServer page.

I think the elements are case-sensitive, so you need to have

...sometimes the errormessages don't point to the real problem... ;-)

Discovered part of my issue. Found that I was using .asp in the global auth url as opposed to .jsp.

dang linux

However, I still cannot push using IPPhoneExecute keeps saying Page Not Found????

My sniff looks like the following:

POST /CGI/Execute HTTP/1.1


Authorization: Basic ********************

Content-type: text/xml

Content-length: 108

User-Agent: Java/1.6.0_03

Accept: text/html, image/gif, image/jpeg, *; q=.2, */*; q=.2

Connection: keep-alive

HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found

Content-Type: text/html

Transfer-Encoding: chunked

Server: Allegro-Software-RomPager/3.12

Connection: close


Object Not Found

The requested URL '/CGI/Execute' was not found on the RomPager server.
