missing ctl file on cisco ip hpone 7960G

Unanswered Question
Dec 1st, 2008

We want to use cisco 7960G ip phones within our network which is secured by 802.1x but we don't use a call manager.

I don't have a security menu on the IP phone ( version 07.5 ) and according to some research this is because I'm missing a ctl file on the phone.

Where can I find a basic ctl file with 802.1x settings that I can make available on my tftp server ?

I have this problem too.

The CTL file is used by the security system. If the device security mode in the configuration file is set to Authenticated or Encrypted, but the phone has not received a CTL file, the phone will continuously try to obtain a CTL file so that it can register securely. The CTL file installs automatically when the phone reboots or resets.

That's the whole issue, I don't have a CISCO call manager to provide the necessary files, I just have the CISCO IP phone I want to integrate with my current PBX solution.

But We have a security framework based on 802.1x and I don't have the security section on my IP phone Cisco 7960G
