Hello Experts.

I am trying to provision a Cisco Phone with an Apache server, which is an Elastix install (, a FreePBX-Asterisk based CentOS distro). My problem is that I can´t seem to handle HTTP requests accordingly. Every time the phone requests a file, the server replies with a 302 and a Location line pointing to https.

I configured a virtual host according to Apache´s Documentation, and netstat -atnp shows port 6970 for my IP just fine.

How can I stop Apache from redirecting to secure http and serve the file instead? Also, how can I intensify debugging of these transactions?

Attaching the httpd.conf and a packet capture log of the transaction. 0.7 is the IP of the elastix box, 0.4 is the Cisco phone. Note that the request is embedded in the TCP segments, starting on Frame 5 of the packet capture.

Many thanks in advance. cipcreg-elastix     httpd.conf.txt
