    I'm looking to see what interest there would be for an updated PumpKIN TFTP server that supports "HTTP Gets" on the backend.

    Anyone using Cisco 79xx phones on 3CX v15 knows that it is now a royal pain to provision these phones because after any change to an extension you have to download and save the SIP{mac}.cfg file to the provisioning folder manually.

    Well... what if the phones could request their files via TFTP to PumpKIN and then PumpKIN could fetch the files (not from a C: drive folder) but from a URL? Your 3CX provisioning URL! Basically perform a TFTP to HTTP proxy! This could even be helpful in some places where TFTP has trouble traversing firewalls, you could install PumpKIN TFTP on a local PC and have it proxy out to the 3CX HTTP provisioning folder. The TFTP traffic would remain local.

    Well, I've been in communication with the author of PumpKIN, Michael Krelin, and while he's a little afraid of his ancient mothballed code, he is willing to take a look and possibly have this feature added by early 2017.

    Please respond to this post if you would at all be interested in this feature so I can gauge the interest level. It would still be totally free / donation optional. I offered to make a decent donation to get things rolling as he said he's only received about $20 total over 20 years of donations. I think 3CX should buck up something!

    Let me know if this is something that would help you're situation!!
