registering IP Communicator wth CME

I've got a question regarding CM Express.

I've got 3725 with (C3725-ADVENTERPRISEK9-M), Version 12.4(15)T5.

I know that for ip phones to operate they need to be supplied with firmware(*.loads) and configuration files(xml files from system:/its/).

The thing is don't have any files on my flash: , i.e. I didn't extract cme tar archive into flash. Nevertheless, IP communicator is able to register with CM Express and gets DN and everything. That's the question - is there any difference in boot process between hardphones and IP Communicator?

Would I be able to register hardphones(if i had some) the same way(without extracting archive) with my router?

    Hi Orkhan



    The ip phones compares its firmware with the load statement and upgrades if necessary so my guess is if you look at the phone and note the firmware level and then set the load statement to be the same it might work. I suspect that CME would only access the TFTP server when it needs it.



    If you are worried about the size of the archive simply copy it to your PC and unzip it.



    Find the loads statement for your phone and copy to flash. switch on debug tftp events and switch on the phone and note the files not found and copy them from your PC. The 3725 will have internal flash with the IOS and an external flash. You can put flash into the external (Dos Format) so you can copy to and from your PC. Alternatively set your PC up as a TFTP server and copy the files to the router.



    Regards Conwyn
