HTTP provisioning no longer working since upgrading to firmware version 7.5.2b with SPA504G

Hi,
I have an Asterisk based cloud provisioning server.

With firmware version 7.4.9a provisioning works normally.
Upgrading to 7.5.2 or to latest 7.6.2d the HTTP provisioning is no longer working.

The device request and find the template, afterthat it stops and it seems blocked.


This is the error reported from syslog debug:

  <134>SPA504G "MAC_ADDRESS" -- Requesting resync http://"SERVER_IP":80/provisioning/public/Cisco/SPA504G/"MAC_ADDRESS".cfg
  <159>FMM >>>> Requesting profile
  <159>[create_tcp_netstrm1] use async to create tcp connection
  <159>connect timeout
  <134>SPA504G "MAC_ADDRESS" -- Resync failed: http_get failed
  <134>SPA504G "MAC_ADDRESS" -- Resync failed: http_get failed
  <159>FMM >>>> Failed profile


Thanks,

Filippo

I see "connect timeout" in your log - so it seems SSL connection has not been established at all. Post 7.5.2b firmwares use newer encryption algorithms and 2048b Diffie-Hellman groups (instead of 1024b). DH key exchange is CPU intensive and it take very long time to generate one.

You may consider to pre-generate DHparams with "openssl dhparam -2 2048" (I asume you have 2048b private key), output should look like

-----BEGIN DH PARAMETERS-----

-----END DH PARAMETERS-----

Such text needs to be appended to the end of file with server's certificate. It may speed up SSL setup enough.

I'm checking with PBX manteiner if is possible modify server's certificate. Do you think that's the only way?

 

I have many devices under provisioning. Should pre-generate DHparams compromise the SSL connection security?

Use tcpdump or so to capture network communication between phone and provisioning server. With saved dump we can verify hypothesis first. If we verify the server is not responding in reasonable time, ask server's administrator for help.

 

The workaround I described works on Apache HTTP server only. If your PBX use other server it will not work. Server administrator should know how to do with server in question.

Hi Filippo,

It will be better if you can open a service request by contacting our support centre based on your region so that we can gather the additional details required on this case to investigate further.

Contact numbers are available on the following link…

Assuming you are expert on the matter - are you willing to disclose what additional information should be obtained ? Thanks.

Hi,

We have some basic template/ requirements to work on some specific issue. For this case packet capture, device configuration file will be helpful to proceed further.
