Unanswered Question
Feb 6th, 2009

Is there any way to configure the softkeys for a 7960 using SIP? I would like to put a DND button on.



I have this problem too.

Neither, Switchvox.

I have a linux box setup with tftp/dhcp/dns for the phone network.

I have SIPDefault.cnf and then also a corresponding SIP.cnf which has specifics for the phone. I have not found any documentation anywhere on how to change the softkeys with the SIP firmware.

Any help would be appreciated.

Based on the lack of response, I am going to assume the answer is no.

Hi Derek,

This is something you can do.

In the .cnf.xml file the phone downloads, add/edit this field:


Here's the default from my SIP CME system, attached.

I was unaware that the latest sip firmware for 7960 used xml files. I have a SIPDefault.cnf and a SIP.cnf

Are you able to attach the .cnf.xml files?

Also, are you able to put in the DND sotkey? I am wanting to have the dnd button displayed.

Hi Derek,

I'm not sure about this. They are probably similar. This was from a Cisco 3951 SIP phone, but I imagine it's fairly similar.

I don't currently have a 7940/60 set up in the lab to test with.
