When utilizing IP soft phones -
are switch ports setup just as they are for standard IP phones with both voice and data vlans?
Just click the stars on the bottom of the reply, there's also somewhere you can mark a question as 'answered'... not had cause to do it myself since NetPro was updated..
The softphone will not use the voice VLAN, so whilst you would normally have a standard/consistent edge port config which would likely include a voice VLAN, you don't NEED it as such.
You would however want to consider your configuration for QoS; if you are using trust-cos or trust-ciscophone then you will want to either switch to trust dscp, or (better) a policed input service policy. If you're not sure how to do it, using auto qos trust cisco-softphone will configure a service policy that will work well for both IP Phones and softphones.
