Not using Endpoint Manager

Using a T46G: I have the following files y000000000028.cfg and 001565649346.cfgin /tftpboot
Using a T42G: I have the following files y000000000029.cfg and 00156565fb3c.cfg in /tftpboot

New install FreePBX 14 is setup with a valid LE cert
New install FreePBX 13 is setup with a valid LE cert
Upgraded FreePBX 13 to FreePBX 14 install is setup with a valid LE cert

Phones are on a network listed as trusted.

SysAdmin Port Management is configured as pictured in all three systems:

On the FreePBX 13 system I can enter into the Yealink phones and they will auto provision nearly instantaneously.

On both of the FreePBX 14 systems when I enter it does nothing.
On both of the FreePBX 14 systems when I enter they respond much slower than the FreePBX 13 system, but the phones do eventually autoprovision.

From a computer on the same network I can use a browser and open all of the listed config files.

An additional, likely related note, I cannot access phonebook.xml manually placed in /var/www/html from the phones. Again this works on the FreePBX 13 instance, but not the FreePBX 14 instances. Again it is available via URL in my browser.

Since you can access them from your local computer that woild.mean it’s not a PBX issue but something to do with your phones not FreePBX but your apache logs would verify that for you.

Who is the CA (Certificate Authority) on the certificate you use for HTTPS? Is there any possibility it is not recognized by the phones?

Is it self-signed?

Good luck and have a nice day!

Upgraded FreePBX 13 to FreePBX 14 install is setup with a valid LE cert

He’s using Let’s Encrypt certs.

Oops, you are right, I missed this… :blush: I guess that`s what happens when you have a lot of other things on your mind…

I guess if the firmware on those phone is too old it might not have the Let’s Encrypt CA in it in which case the firmware would need to be updated or that CA manually added to the trusted CA list.

According to this:

on page 16 the firmware must not be earlier than X.80.0.95 to support Let’s Encrypt…

If the firmware cannot be updated for some reason the first few pages of that PDF explain how to add trusted certificates…

Good luck and have a nice day!

The same phone with the same firmware works on FreePBX 13 with the LE cert.

Tested with firmware 81.0.20, 81.0.110 (I think), and 82.0.20 (current).

Is there anything interesting in your HTTP server logs?

I guess ultimately what could be interesting is to compare the configuration files System Admin Pro produced on both system to see if something seems to be missing in the FreePBX 14’s produced ones…

(Hopefully things didn’t change much on that level between both versions…)

Good luck and have a nice day!

looking for the logs, I cannot find anything. when a valid system hits, I can see it in access_log.

The ssl_error log is empty and has been since 2016.

The only thing I see in access_log is repeated timeouts when I tell the phone to provision with https - - [06/Oct/2017:10:29:17 -0500] "-" 408 - "-" "-" - - [06/Oct/2017:10:29:46 -0500] "-" 408 - "-" "-" - - [06/Oct/2017:10:30:16 -0500] "-" 408 - "-" "-" - - [06/Oct/2017:10:30:45 -0500] "-" 408 - "-" "-"

The ciphers and other settings in ssl.conf match between FreePBX 13 and FreePBX 14.

(Jared Busch) #13

I change the autoprovision to

and boom. - - [06/Oct/2017:10:40:56 -0500] "GET /001565649346.boot HTTP/1.1" 404 215 "-" "Yealink SIP-T46G 00:15:65:64:93:46" - - [06/Oct/2017:10:40:56 -0500] "GET /y000000000000.boot HTTP/1.1" 404 216 "-" "Yealink SIP-T46G 00:15:65:64:93:46" - - [06/Oct/2017:10:40:56 -0500] "GET /y000000000028.cfg HTTP/1.1" 200 10433 "-" "Yealink SIP-T46G 00:15:65:64:93:46" - - [06/Oct/2017:10:40:58 -0500] "GET /T46- HTTP/1.1" 200 23234624 "-" "Yealink SIP-T46G 00:15:65:64:93:46" - - [06/Oct/2017:10:41:02 -0500] "GET /001565649346.cfg HTTP/1.1" 200 4421 "-" "Yealink SIP-T46G 00:15:65:64:93:46"

Even thought the phone is on firmware X.82.0.20,

I grabbed the certs from the PBX and put them in the phone. It makes no difference.

(Jared Busch) #15

I also disabled the security validations

(Marbled) #16


Are they in the same subnet? If they are, do they have matching subnet masks (I once saw pretty weird problems caused by this…).

Good luck and have a nice day!


(Jared Busch) #17

No, The phones are in my office, the PBX (all three examples) is hosted on Vultr in the Chicago Datacenter.

(Jared Busch) #18

Where are the logs that should be recording failures? The ssl logs (both ssl_access_log and ssl_error_log) are empty as shown above.

(Tony Lewis) #19

If they are empty that would appear the phone is not reaching the PBX. Look at your phone logs.

(Marbled) #20

Have you looked at your firewall logs both on the PBX and at your location…

That timeout thing logged in Apache’s logs bugs me, it sounds like the PBX might be unable to talk back to the phone…

Good luck and have a nice day!
