[Asterisk-Users] Cisco 7960 phones.

I have found a phone that I wish I had not!  This is by far the worst
phone to setup.  I have finally upgraded it to Sip but once this got
done it I am not able to get it unlocked so I can enter the rest of the
settings.  So if anyone out there can tell me how to setup my DNS server
to tell it where the tftp is located (Windows 2000 DNS server) or please
let me have the default password.  I called Cisco and they said I can
change it with the tftp setup and that is all they said. (They also said
to use Skinny and not SIP) Not much help from there support contract we
have on with them!  Why have they made a phone that is so hard to get
working!  I feel that Cisco does not understand the KISS format!  I have
read the Wiki and the setup is listed there incorrectly as 9740/9760
instead of 7940/7960 (Can someone rename that please).

Thank you all for allowing to do a little venting as well.  Sorry did
not mean to do this!  But this has gotten me to loose hair and I don't
have much left!
