IP Phones Plug-N-Play
« on: June 08, 2007, 12:43:05 am »
Does anyone have a list of the IP phones that LinuxMCE will automatically recognize (by MAC address) and configure?  I know Cisco phones work.  Any others?

thanks,
-Pete

I just received 2 GrandStream Budget Tone 200 SIP phones to test.
As soon as I plugged them in and booted them up, Pluto detected them and asked If I wanted to use them..

I wish setting them up in Asterisk was as simple  :P

The thread says Cisco phones just work. Does it have to be a certain protocol to work correctly? I spent a month getting three 7960s upgraded from the very first version of SCCP/Skinny (It was a hastle becuase the old firmware version didn't want to be upgraded.) to the latest SIP protocol. Do I need to flash them back to SCCP/Skinny to have LinuxMCE auto configure them? Or will SIP work just fine?

There is a wiki page on adding the CISCO 7970 phone here: http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Add_CISCO_7078_Orbiter that you might want to look at for some info.

Cisco 7970 works fine with Plutohome 2.0.0.44. It offers an Orbiter - not so useful but better than nothing and calls of course. I configured private VoIP gateway via Asterisk web interface during 10 minutes (you may see my brief how to here - http://smart-home-blog.com/writes/configure-sip-gate-for-asterisk). I just install proper codec for Cisco. And know it's possible to make a calls outside home.
