I am in a bit of a dilemma, I am currently trying to configure my new Cisco IP Phone 7960. When I try adding it to the 3CX Phone System Management and I am unable to get the phone provisioned due to my server unable to make the file for the phone. If you need more information please contact me.
Solved! Go to Solution.
3CX doesn't create the phone configuration for the phone.
For non-Cisco callmanager, like CX, you need to create the phone configuration file and upload the configuration to the phone using DHCP Option 150.
I am using Windows Server as the DHCP server and I don't see DHCP Option 150. How would I create the configuration for the IP Phone?
My question is this: Do you have the phone configuration file for a 7960 ready? What about the other associate files?
Happy to see it finally works, Trevor.
Don't stop at 7940/7960. They are very easy to configure. It's the 7970, 79X5 that are a b1tch to configure but have better functionality.
I will take your word that the 7970 and the 79X5 are a b1tch to configure, but I want to test my DID number, can you call 7026236028 please
I forgot to mention that aside from the better functionality, once the configuration of the 7970 & 79X5 is "perfected" the configuration can become a template for other Cisco phone models (other than 7940/7960).
I am now facing a new problem, I am trying to add a ring tone called Batman.raw but it doesn't seem to want to add the ring tone to the ring type menu in settings.
