My co-worker and I have been trying to convert Cisco 7961 phone over to the SIP protocol to use with a open source call manager. On a windows 7 machine, we have TFTPD32 setup (version 3.23) for DHCP for 192.168.1.1 network. Starting IP at .100. Additonal Option set at 150 0x0101A8C. In settings TFTP and DHCP Server are checked. DHCP Options has Bind DHCP to this address (192.168.1.1).
I am using the cmterm-7941_7961-sip.8-2-2SR3 firmware to try to get the phone to go to SIP so I can upgrade it higher. However, when I set the phone to factory reset. It pulls an IP 192.168.1.100. It looks like it is trying to download the 'term61.default.loads' firmware. However, the screen would flash for a split second and I can see 'error' on the phone display and it tries one more time. I get the same error and it goes to "CISCO Copyright 2002-2007 Cisco Systems, Inc." with a Java logo and a bullseye.
I understand its an older version of the SIP firmware, but I was double checking to make sure it could update and the original plan was to get it to SIP then apply the SIP updates as needed. So far it hasn't worked out so far.

The below trick might come handy when you have to add a new node to a cluster but you don't have or is unsure of the security password for the publisher. This procedure has been around for ages.
