Phone firmware from TFTP server

Unanswered Question

Hi all,

Because of WAN bandwidth limitation, can i build a custom local TFTP server on each of my client's remote site and point the IP phones to it to download the firmware locally rather than via the WAN??

I have spent a lot of time on this already but couldn't get anywhere. Would greatly appreciated if someone can shed some light on this.

Hi Hunt,

I have done this using Cisco routers at remote sites to provide the firmware locally.

Copy the files to flash on the router and add the config something like (example for 7941/61 firmware 8.0.4)

tftp-server flash:apps41.1-1-3-15.sbn

tftp-server flash:cnu41.3-1-3-15.sbn

tftp-server flash:cvm41sccp.8-0-3-16.sbn

tftp-server flash:dsp41.1-1-3-15.sbn

tftp-server flash:jar41sccp.8-0-3-16.sbn

tftp-server flash:SCCP41.8-0-4SR1S.loads

Then on the phone configuration page set the phone load server parameter to the address of the router.

Hope this helps.
