How to get a Cisco 7940 working on a small network
Posted on 2011-04-19
I have to get a Cisco CDP solution together for a customer to do IP phone discovery, so I've bought a Cisco 7940 phone, plus a power supply, and now I have to get the thing on the network.
I plugged it in, it says "Configuring VLAN" then it says "Configuring IP" - and there it stays.
I don't even need to use it for phone calls, I just need to get a cdp tool working with it.
My network is the classic Microsoft AD / Microsoft DNS / Microsoft DHCP, all behind a cisco asa 5505. All our IP's are 10.5.0.0/24
So, is there a way to get it onto the network and pingable, cdp queryable, even working ??
