Hello experts,

I am setting up about 20 Linksys SPA942 phones.

Is there any way to copy configuration from one to one, and after that changing only username and password instead of setting them one by one?

I've not played with the 942 enough to know if you can upload a settings file direct to the phone GUI.

We mostly install them (and other phones) in an environment where the phone config is pushed out from the PBX when the phone boots in for the first time.

You might find even if you're not using a PBX that can do this that you can perhaps pre-configure each phone with your preferred settings via a free-to-try copy of 3CX, then tweak them to your finished settings?

If you are using a PBX which can configure the phones, however, definitly do that!!

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

I'll give you the "jist" of it right now... then i'll provide you a more complete solution later.


Basically you can send a pre-formed packet to your phones that contains all the settings relative to that phone.

Like this.....

------ sampleconfigpacket.txt
POST /admin/bsipura.spa HTTP/1.1
Accept: */*
Accept-Language: en-us
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; yie8)
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
Host: 192.168.6.57
Keep-Alive: 500
Connection: Keep-Alive
Location: http://192.168.6.57/admin/
Referer: http://192.168.6.57/admin/
Content-Length: 200
Cache-Control: no-cache

29230=XUSERX2000%27s+PHONE
------------EOF-----------

Now if I were to send that packet to my phone.....   using a program called NetCat....
(commandline:  nc.exe 192.168.6.57 80 < sampleconfigpacket.txt)

This would change the name display name of my phone.

It appears to me an answer *has* been provided. Does it not work?

Thank you for your help and sorry for being late.

Actually there is no suitable solution above, there is only a concept, I will need more details about the exact SPA942 configuration file. I will accept any solution provided before post will be deleted.

If there *really* is no solution, and taht means you'll need to tell us why the suggested solutions are not suitable - then this question should remain so that in future people searching for it will be able to find it and follow the discussion. I don't understand why you are trying to delete it.
