I have purchased a Cisco VoIP 7961 device, in order to connect on an Asterisk PBX. In addition, Cisco has provided me with the SIP firmware of this device, in order to upgrade it accordingly to my specifications. Unfortunately, the installation of the SIP firmware needs a TFTP server. My router has NO special settings to define TFTP server on the local/home network that I have. Could I do it with a cross-over cable and a Windows machine with an Ethernet port?
Also, I cannot access the phone's menu. I was told to reset the phone, but never 'rebooted' properly. Cisco told me that I have to connect it on a TFTP and all would be resolved. Any help please?
