    Hi,

    I am not sure if the 79x2 series is the same as the 79x5 series as I have never used that phone. However if it uses the XML configuration files then it should work for you as long as you load the SIP firmware.

    I have been successful in getting a Cisco 7945 and 7975 running the latest SIP firmware (9.2.1) to work with 3CX. There are some config changes required for the latest 9.2.1 firmware that differs from the config on the 8.5 series of firmware.

    Let me know if you need any configuration examples.

    I would be curious as to what changes you made. I have a 7975 working on 8.5.4, but when I upgraded to 9.2.1 it would not register. I downgraded back to 8.5.4 and it worked fine.

    By any chance hace you gotten BLF to work on the 7975?

    Yes I had the problem with registration as well. You will need to change the phone to use callmanager in the config.

    Change the callamanger section as follows to add your 3cx as a callmanger destination.

    Code:
    <callManagerGroup>  
        <members>  
           <member priority="0">  
              <callManager>  
                 <ports>  
                    <ethernetPhonePort>2000</ethernetPhonePort>  
                    <sipPort>5060</sipPort>  
                    <securedSipPort>5061</securedSipPort>  
                 </ports>  
                 <processNodeName>192.168.0.5</processNodeName>  
              </callManager>  
           </member>  
        </members>  
     </callManagerGroup>  
    And finally change the line registration section as follows.

    Code:
    <sipLines> 
      <line  
         button="1"> 
           <featureID>9</featureID>  
           <featureLabel>Line 1</featureLabel>  
           <proxy>USECALLMANAGER</proxy>  
           <port>5060</port> 
           <name>220</name> 
           <displayName>Ronan</displayName>  
           <autoAnswer>  
              <autoAnswerEnabled>2</autoAnswerEnabled>  
           </autoAnswer>  
           <callWaiting>3</callWaiting> 
           <authName>220</authName>  
           <authPassword>*****</authPassword>  
           <sharedLine>false</sharedLine> 
           <messageWaitingLampPolicy>1</messageWaitingLampPolicy>  
           <messagesNumber>*97</messagesNumber>  
           <ringSettingIdle>4</ringSettingIdle>  
           <ringSettingActive>5</ringSettingActive> 
           <contact>1234567</contact>  
           <forwardCallInfoDisplay>  
              <callerName>true</callerName>  
              <callerNumber>false</callerNumber>  
              <redirectedNumber>false</redirectedNumber>  
              <dialedNumber>true</dialedNumber>  
           </forwardCallInfoDisplay>  
        </line>
    
     
    The above changes allowed the phone to register and work correctly on SIP firmware 9.2.1. I have not had any luck with BLF but am planning at looking into it soon.

    Thanks so much! I got it working! Now if I can just sort out the BLF that would be great. I am also playing around with g.722, with limited success.

    Thank you all for the reply,


    Quicktec,
    Which config file are you talking about?
    XMLDefault.cnf.xml or SEP{IPHONEMACADDRESS}.cnf.xml.

    Hi Osmin,

    I am talking about the SEP{IPHONEMACADDRESS}.cnf.xml.

    I have attached my full config for a working Cisco 7975G phone running SIP 9.2.1 firmware. The configuration should be almost identical for your 7942.

    Hi Quicktec,

    Thank you for helping me with this issue.


    Once again I need your help. I tried your config file and it made changes on the phone. But, it will not register with my 3cx. I have attached my config file. I don't even see any communication with my PBX. But, it does communicate with the TFTP server (same server as my PBX).

    Currently, I see "Your current options" on my phone screen.

    L1, I see a phone icon with an X next to it.
    L2, I see the same icon with an X next to it.

    I too am running 7942's with 8.5.4 because I couldn't get them to register with 9.x. Thank you for the updated config that works with 9.x.

    Are you able to get the 3CX directory loaded on the phones? I see that in your working config you have "http://10.10.10.15/xmlservices/PhoneDirectory.php" listed as your directory URL. The URL for the 3CX cisco directory is "http://IP_of_3CX:5000/provisioning/cisco_phonebook.xml", but when I put that in my config no directory gets added on the phone. Anyone have this working? That seems to be the only thing that goesn't work for me.

    Ronan and other...

    I've got my 7975G working great with call waiting on each SIP line, but I'd like to change things and add 3 appearances of the same line on the phone and rather than call waiting kicking in, I'd rather have it roll to the next appearance of the same line. I have this working great on a Polycom 670 but I'm stumped on a 7975G running 9.2.1. I've toyed around with changing callWaiting in the SEP file for that particular line from 3 to 0 but this does not work at all. Basically button 1,2 & 3 are all the same appearance of the same line and I want a 2nd call to roll to the 2nd line appearance. In 3CX v10 I have the setting checked that I want to be able to accept more than one call at the same time using the phone status, but still no luck... though, again, works great on Polycom.

    Any ideas out there? Am I missing something VERY obvious?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Osmin,

    have you solved the lines problem?
    I've run into the same issue: L1 & L2 have an X next to it.
    The phone registers but the lines have the red X.

    I use a Cisco 7975, firmware: 9-3-1SR-1S.

    Thanks.
    Regards
