    Hi aftermarket,

    I suspect not.

    I use SPA942's (originally Linksys and now referred to as Cisco Small Business). In the case of the SPA942, I believe the central phone book can only be picked centrally via LDAP which is not the 3CX approach. So I have not managed to resolved this one for the SPA.

    Hopefully someone else can post more specifically for the 7940.

    Regards

    Hi

    Open SIPDefault.cnf and add the below at the bottom

    # Phone Book Directory
    directory_url: "http://192.168.1.64:5000/provisioning/cisco_phonebook.xml"

    change the IP address to match your 3CX server

    Have you tested that with a CISCO 7945G? If not I will and can report.

    no, only tested with the 7940, but should work with the 794* Series
