I had the same error trying to push XML to my IP Phone using c#. The error no. isn't in any doc, but wandering for forums I've found this is an internal error in receiving the POST.

My case was this : I was using the HttpWebRequest object in c# which sends an HTTP 100-Continue header to the IP Phone before sending the POST message (

I suppose that the IP Phone doesn't know how to handle this and answers with the ciscoIpPhoneError = 6.

I solved the issue using the MSXML object to send the same POST message :

byte[] bb = System.Text.ASCIIEncoding.UTF8.GetBytes("user" + ":" + "pwd");

MSXML2.XMLHTTPClass xmlhttp = new MSXML2.XMLHTTPClass();"POST", "http://webserver/CGI/Execute", true, "", "");

xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("Authorization", "Basic " + Convert.ToBase64String(bb));

xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("Connection", "close");

xmlhttp.setRequestHeader("Content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");


I'm writing a more exhaustive article on this on, where I'll attach also the sniffing sessions in this two cases.
