Cisco 7960 and SARK-631/638
« on: June 23, 2008, 12:06:17 PM »
Hi Selintra,

I like to test a Cisco 7960 with 631/638 but cant get it working. Can you give me a litte howto please ?

What i was done is:

- download a (free ?) sipfirmware (P0S3-08-2-00.zip) from h++p://www.xs4all.nl/~graver1/cisco/SIP-7960/
- put the firmware to /tftpboot directory
- make an extension (5000) with the mac ... for 7960

When i do a commit the SIPDefault.cnf will be overwritten and shows me an other firmwareversion .... .


Best

Cisco 79XX are OK to set-up PROVIDED they have already been converted to SIP.  If they are still using skinny, it can be a real pain to convert them. 

They have no browser component so everything has to be provisioned.  They don't really like running SIP. However, having said that....

If your phone is already SIP then you don't need to do anything with the firmware.  You can tell if it is by turning it on...

In the top tight hand corner of the display it will say SIP.

SIPDefault.cnf tells the phone which image version to load and where to find its proxy.  You can find and edit SIPDefault in the IPDevices Panel.  Change the image version to match what's on the phone and what you have on the tftp server.

Define your 7960 in SAIL and make sure you provide the Mac Address.

That's it.  Reboot your phone and it should come up OK. 

I have a 7960 on my desk which I use all the time.  It's nowhere near as good as a Snom360 or an Aastra 57i but it's OK.

Best

Hi,

You are right !!! It is a real pain, but i got it now. The Solution was to find the right image and to change OS79XX.TXT, SIPDefault.cnf and XMLDefault.cnf.xml under IP Devices and make an Extension with the MAC of the Phone.

Just one thing i had to change manually to get the phone provisioning, it was to change SIP00:0F:08:D1:B3:C4.cnf to SIP000F08D1B3C4.cnf

Thanks !

You should have entered it in your extension as a number (without colons : ).  Please read the docs.
My fault, we should have a routine in there to remove them - I'll put it on the build list.
