I have an issue with configuring a SIP account. My provider wants the username and password to be cleartext. As far as I'm aware, this can be accomplished by configuring the sip-ua credentials with the password option 0 (zero). But when I try this, the password option is automatically set to 7 (which implies that the password should be encrypted).
This is what I do:
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
UC_520(config-sip-ua)#credentials username USER001 password 0 PASSWORD realm sip.provider.com
Compressed configuration from 56788 bytes to 23893 bytes[OK]
UC_520#sh configuration | begin sip-ua
credentials username USER001 password 7 00343235376C24342B realm sip.provider.com
Any idea's what I'm doing wrong, or is this just a bug?
