Query

Hi folks,

was wondering what's the function of the option 32 " Alternate TFTP" on a 7940 IP phone. Does enabling it have anything do with the ability of the phone to acquire a DHCP IP?

Re: Query

Through TFTP only the phone loads its firmware and other configuration.

alternate TFTP is required when you have a redundant solution where if the first TFTP server fails the alternate will take over.

enabling it will not make any difference till your phones are able to reach the first one.

Re: Query

Hi Sandeep,

Thnaks for your reply. I have tried to make a phone up by giving a DHCP IP, it was not taking anything & was stuck in " configuring". We tried by enabling alternate TFTP it worked like a charm. I am puzzled since I know that has got nothing to do with making a phone register. But that's exactly what's hapenning in our network.

Regards,

Ashok..
