Configure Cisco 7960 phones with Asterisk PBX

This article describe the process to configure a Cisco 7960 SIP phone with an Asterisk PBX system.

Requirements

  • Asterisk PBX or similar
  • TFTP Server
  • Cicso 7960G or similar IP phone

 

Asterisk Server Config

  • Create new SIP extension
    • Under “Applications / Extensions” choose Add Extension
  • Choose “CHAN SIP Device”
  • Enter User Extension: 702 (or whatever extension you want)
  • Under Secret: choose a password with at least 2 numbers
  • Click Save and Apply
  • Go back into config and make sure the Deny and Permit are set correctly
    • Deny: 0.0.0.0/0.0.0.0
    • Permit: 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 (or whatever matches your network)

Configure your TFTP server

  • I’m using Linux so just install a tftp-server by typing the following:

  • the default install on Centos7 will have the tftp-server root directory under /var/lib/tftpboot
  • Put the following files in that directory

SIPDefault.cnf

SIP000A8A344598.cnf  (Fill in your MAC address after the SIPXXX.cnf)

SEP000A8A344598.cnf.xml  (Fill in your MAC address after the SEPXXX.cnf)

OS79XX.TXT

dialplan.xml

List.xml

RINGLIST.DAT

ringlist.xml

XMLDefault.cnf.xml
