I really need some help with setting up a small network of cisco IP phones. I cannot get them to register. I have a SPA9000, a PC running FreeBPX and two cisco IP phones. A 7962 and a 8961. Both of them got their own IP addresses. I can access the 7962 online UI but there is nothing to configure. Just shows information. And I cannot access the 8961’s web UI at all, and yes I tried https://. The SPA9000 setup wizard does not see either phone. I’m a newbie, so this article (pbx DOT org/display/FOP/Cisco) didn’t help because I don’t understand how to accomplish almost all of the steps given in the article. I can see it wants me to update the phones firmware, but I don’t know what to download and then where to apply the changes with the firmware.
I just need these to be able to call each other. And I’ll hook up a trunk to make out going calls
So what am I missing, what do I need to do, and how do I do it?
