Troubles with CME 8 and Cisco ATA SPA112

Hi guys

First.. Apologize my english, i know that it's not the best

I'm having problems trying to use the Cisco Small Bussines SPA112 with my CME. I use the CME with Cisco IP Phone 7942 and it works fine. Today i tried to add an extension for an analog phone with the ATA with this config:

ephone-dn  76  dual-line
number 502
description SJO
name SJO
corlist incoming Perfil-0

ephone  76

mac-address ACF2.C536.490C

max-calls-per-button 2

type ata

button  1:76

And in ATA config i set the proxy IP:, display name and user ID: 502

But it doesn't work

By the way, i configured the ATA to work with another PBX (NeXspan and configuring only proxy IP and userd ID in ATA) and it works correctly, but i really need to get the ATA working with the CME.

May you help me?

If you need more detailed configuration, i'll post it here.

Thanks in advance!

I'll try again, hope you can understand it better:

SPAxx must be configured as a third-party SIP phone. Not as a Cisco phone. It is not like the ATA186.

SPA112 is a SIP device, so you need to configure it like that.

You can search the forum for "third party SIP phone", there are many threads about.

Thank you for your answer Paolo!

I've tried with 7942, ATA, CIPC, 12SP but still no working

Do i need to try with all models? I remember that with CME 3.0 and 3.1, the ATA 186 was recognized as 7960. I've also tried 7960.

Ok Paolo now all it's clear. Thank you for your help! That was the problem.

I set up the device as SIP device and other model. Now i have both ports of SPA112 in use.

Now i've dial tone, and i can receive calls, hear and in the other side of the call people can hear me. But when i'm trying to make calls, i receive a reorder tone. I've changed my dial plan to (xx.) but same result.

I tried ticking and unticking "use outbound proxy", "NAT mapping enable", "Keep NAT alive" but still get reorder tone.

Any idea, Paolo?

P.S. Syslog server is receiving few of this: SIP/2.0 489 BadEvent- `Malformed/Unsupported Event

You can take "debug ccsip message" with "term mon" on CME.

I really appreciated your time and help Paolo. Now my SPA is working fine! Last problem was due codec configuration.

Thank you!

Thank you for the nice rating and good luck!

Hi Paolo,

I have a working CME 2951/K9 , want to setup analogue fax machine. For that I  bought 2 SPA112. Can you help me to know if this can be possible on this CME, if yes then what all I need to check.



Can you share the configuration for the CME for registering SPA 112? I have configured it as a SIP device and it is not registering. The CME is not responding to the SIP register requests. I have my configuration and screen shot of the packet capture on the post below:
