Use this command to verify which phone firmware is installed on a particular ephone. The DeviceName includes the MAC address for the IP phone.

Router# show ephone phone-load

hi tstanik,

Thank you for your reply.

Let me explain better:

I created a XML service and the url is

So, when I access this service through the ip phone (7960) I expect to get it devicename.

I have tested this in the callmanager 5.0 and works. But in the callmanager express doesnt work.

I need to identify who is the device that is accessing the service.

Have you checked what happens if you add a regular service url to the phone on the cme and then have the phone make that call.. do you get any query string or nothing at all?

A little late, but thought you should know:

I just filed/resolved a bug with this. You can track it via CSCsv95576

It should be fixed in 12.4(22)T1 and 12.4(20)T2
