Background Images to Cisco 7942

Hi experts,

We install Cisco 7942G with our PBX phones working perfectly but i m enable to upload background image from tftp server.
Is it possible without CUCM ? If yes so pleas guide me step by step process.
Thanks In Advance

SIP or Skinny?

The specifics matter, but in general, the phone’s XML configuration file points to the web address if the background image using a normal “” URI.

It needs to match the strict requirements of the phone’s background image or it won’t be displayed.

Thanks for reply Dave.

Got it working. :grin:

Hello @asifahmed009 can you share the configuration file please.
