Setting up SIP on a Cisco 7960


I have had now tried for some time to get some Cisco 7960 to work.

So far i have managed to get them to find and load files from the Tftp, although it doesn't seem like they can find the SIP"MAC-adress".cnf and load this.

Also the phones write up some error messages in the status when i look on the phones, after they have booted.

The files look like this:

And the errors on the phones are:

E600 REG send failure:


W350 invalid proxy_backup

W351 invalid proxy_emergency

W310 6 Error(s) Parsing:


W220 TFTP Error: Not found IP


W250 TFTP Error: Not found



I use pumpkin Tftp and i have also noticed that when looking for the SIP"MAC-adress".cnf it requests the file with some wierd signs in front of the file name like ||SIP"MAC-adress".cnf

anyone up for helping out?

Re: Setting up SIP on a Cisco 7960

I have a very similar issue.  I have a CME router configured as follows:

voice register global

mode cme

source-address port 5060

max-dn 2

max-pool 2

load 7960-7940 P0S3-07-5-00

authenticate register

time-format 24

date-format D/M/Y

tftp-path flash:

create profile sync 0001675596328227

voice register dn  1

number 73860

name BR2 Phone 1

voice register template  1

dialplan 1

softkeys connected  Endcall Hold Trnsfer

voice register dialplan  1

type 7940-7960-others

pattern 1 5....

voice register pool  1

id mac 000A.41F9.790E

type 7960

number 1 dn 1

template 1

dtmf-relay sip-notify

username 73860 password cisco

codec g711ulaw

My phone connects to CME but doesn't register.  I see a little X next to the phone icon on the phone display and my STATUS log on the phone reads:


E600 REG send failure:


W350 invalid proxy_backup

W351 invalid proxy_emergency

W310 12 Error(s) Parsing:


W320 5 Errors(s) Parsing:
