Hi guys , I want to set up a softphone.  
Recently we've installed Cisco Unity Express 8.6.4 . We have 2 Isdn interface  6 digital line , and 10 7942 ip phone.
Now We need to know when the lines are busy, and who is talking to whom internally. I know
with this phone i can configure only 1 line because has only 2 button on the right panel...But I want to configure IP COMMUNICATOR software that can do it.
Someone can help me to configure and register the softphone.
I didn't find any guide about this configuration.
Thanx

It sounds that you are running Callmanager in your router, not Callmanager on a server.

Then, registering an IP Communicator should be something like this:

#conf t
(config)#ephone 20 (you put the ephone # you need/want)
(config-ephone)#mac-address 1444.5555.FFCC (change to the MAC the IP Communicator is using)
(config-ephone)#type CIPC
(config-ephone)#button  1:3  (here you put the button number and then the ephone-dn number to be paired with such button)

On the CIPC side, make sure to configure the TFTP server to point to the CME, or duplicate the setting from your 7942 phones.

The only other thing I would add to www's comment is that for the monitoring part, the button configuration would be something like this:

(config-ephone)#button  1:3 2m10 3m11 4m12

with 10, 11, and 12 being the lines you want monitored.
the "m" separator allows the line to be monitored, but not used to make calls. You could also use the "s" separator in case you wanted the monitor to be able to pick up the monitored line, but want the line to ring silently. Anyways... several options here, look at the doc below.

Thanx for the answsers . Yes we have a router Cisco CISCO2901 .  I configured the router , but on the Ip communicator software i see this log messages : XMLDeafault.cnf.xml
File Not found : SEP4061869023DB.cn.xml
No Trust List Installed .

I suppose  , I need to create an xml configuration file named XMLDeafault.cnf.xml and put it on the flash.
On the internet I was looking for a default configuration and i found this one
<Default>
<callManagerGroup>
    <members>  
       <member priority="0">  
          <callManager>

<authenticationURL></authenticationURL>  
<directoryURL></directoryURL>

Not correct, the telephony-service engine is in charge of generating the SEP4061869023DB.cnf.xml.

Do the following:

#conf t
(config)#ephone <your ephone number>
(config-ephone)#restart

Try this.

Also, try deleting the CTL file. Settings -> Security -> CTL File -> ** # (to unlock) -> Erase.
 
I did the following steps:

 
Downloaded the CME-locale-en_US-English-7.0.1.1.tar from the following link:

I did all. But I still get the same error....Now we have English configuration on all phones , but is not a problem...?
We don't have any gui than that of Cisco Unity Express.
I have a question about the gui , if I switch to CUCME on the panel I get an advice .

Cisco Unity Express switch to CUCME
what should I expect ?

Thanks agonza07 for your clarification, if the solution was as in http:#38787421, then my comment http:#38767229 would apply as the solution. Would like to ask the author to accept as solution.

I just wanted to be fair to willlywilburwonka since his post http:#38767229 was the correct solution. Post http:#38787421 was simply a typo on supportols' behalf after the solution was given.

Sorry guys, dont mean to be such a pain... just wanted to be fair is all.
