IP Phone Services - CM4.2(3)

Unanswered Question
Mar 11th, 2008


I'm trying to configure a URL service for the IP phones. I've configured the steps needed in what concerns CM4.2(3) and subscribed the service on the phone. When I try to access it through the phone the following message appears:"host unknown".

I have not configured any parameters for this server.

What am I doing wrong?


I have this problem too.

Hello Ana,

The "host unknown" message indicates that the phone was not able to resolve the hostname portion of the IP phone service URL. If you entered it as a name ie:


Then the phone is not able to resolve CCMPUB1 into an IP Address. You can do one of 2 things to correct this. First, you can change the URL into an IP address like:

Or, you can configure your DHCP server to hand out a DNS server IP Address as part of the lease, and have that DNS server able to resolve the name CCMPUB1 into an IP Address.

I hope this helps!

Could you please give me an example of a URL that I can use to test with meteorology information?
