I'm looking for possible ways a 8861 Cisco IP Phone can identify itself to a web server (where I'm running my script to push a Cisco XML object to the phone) and for ways the web server can authenticate itself to the Cisco IP Phone.
1. Is it possible to install a certificate on the phone and have the phone present it to my web server? I understand that the reverse is not possible.
2. Other than a hard coded user:pwd combination in the URL or script, what other options are possible to authenticate the client to the phone? I'd rather not have an end user type in their username/password every time they want to run the script...
Any suggestions/possibilities are welcome!

I have the same issue, I am unable to communicate with Cisco 8861 phone by sending CiscoIPPhoneExecute command through HTTP Post from Postman rest client. It returns 404 error. Let me know how to send device name in the URL, can you share an example. On a sidenote, my phone is connected to Broadsoft
