Jul 18th, 2008

Good morning, would want to receive, if possible, information on as to configure the telephones IP Mod. 3911. I know that it is necessary to send a file of configuration to the telephones in formed XML, through a server TFTP. We in firm don't have a server TFTP, I have connected the telephones to the local net through a door PoE, the telephone through DHCP read the parameters of base, but I have necessity to also insert to the inside the parameters of our provider. How can I do?

when you're using cisco phones without a cisco call manager, you will have to find out all and any details by yourself, because cisco never fully disclosed the XML fields, although these are quite easy to figure out.

You best source of information is, search for 7961 sip as the tags are the same.

Note you can have many problem getting the phone to work, because it doesn't support STUN and other things that needed for consumer-grade deployment.

Hi, the cisco call manager is the deluxe solution by cisco to control IP phones doing a PBX. It is quite expensive and complex to configure.

You can have something easier and cheaper with CM Express that runs on the router.

However when you just want to have a phone connected to a SIP voice provider, the best is to use some other brand, eg Linksys that is much easier to use and configure than a Cisco IP phone.
