    We use the 7940 on Asterisk 10, if that helps. What do you need?

    I have found it now but need some other pointers.

    Have you got this working please? - https://supportforums.cisco.com/message/3839768#3839768

    have you also found a way to enforce a specific wallpaper on phones?

    Do you use call pickup?

    Thanks

    We don't use the BLF functionality of the phone, as the 7940 only has 2 line keys. So cant help with that one. But I'm pretty sure it has something to do with 'hints'.

    The wallpaper is a link to a picture hosted on a website, depending on the model you have, you have to conform to certain requirements. If you use FreePBX you can add this in OSS, or if you are using command line pure asterisk it goes in the XML file for the phone. I used this as reference No Good Tips & Tricks: Hacking The Cisco 7940 IP Phone

    Call pickup we do with the FOP2 add-on, I do eventually want to get this working on the phones themselves, but we are very early on in our roll-out.

    I am learning as well, but any help I can give, let me know.

    Can you tell me what you mean about hints?

    I had a quick scan at the link but that method allows users to change it back to something else.

    Thanks for the help. If you need anything let me know we are in the exact same boat.

    What software do you give your receptionists?

    We give the receptionist at each centre FOP2, Flash Operator Panel 2. The best web based switchboard for the Asterisk PBX. Works very well, written by the person/people that wrote the original FreePBX FOP. Cost us something like 35 for a white label perpetual licence(gets rid of all copyright footers and allows you to rebrand) There is a trial that only allows 15 buttons, so you can try it out.

    Users can only change the image if they have access to the TFTP server serving the XML files. It can't be changed on the phone itself, although the URL can be seen in the settings.

    On the BLF, I just remember the word hints from my googling about! You could try Enable Custom Device States in the advanced settings in FreePBX.

    Ah ok, the 7940 does use the old system. You must have the newer phones. Don't you have the OSS PBX Endpoint Manager module installed in FreePBX? It does most of this for you.

    We do have some older phones but stuck newer firmware on them without any issues. If you want some help getting them upgraded give me a shout.

    I am using Asterisknow i dont remember seeing that module.

    Sorry, I cooked my server from source, rather than using a distro. I don't know if asterisknow comes with freepbx, if it does, then in Module Admin you should have an option for OSS PBX Endpoint Manager, which can be installed and automatically looks after TFTP and provisions a multitude of sip phones, including a lot of the cisco ones. Writes all the XML/config files for you and saves a bucket load of time!

    Our firmware on the 7940 is 3-8-12, which I thought was the newest for that model.
