    Default Looking at a Cisco phone cnf.xml file?

    Hi guys,

    Is it possible to look at the SEP<MAC>cnf.xml file of a Cisco phone? I want to see what background images the phone is downloading when it registers and possibly remove some of the images from this file?

    Cheers

    Alex

    Hi Alex,

    Have you tried browsing to the phone's IP address? It's not pure XML stuff but you kinda get to see what the phone pulls from the the XML file.

    Also, have a look at this How to get a Phone's .cnf.xml file from CUCM | Cisco | VOIP might help with getting the XML file from the CUCM Publisher but I'm not sure you can fiddle with it unless you edit it and spoof the IP address of the CUCM onto your PC...might work. Just a thought.

    It is sent in the clear, so you can view it in Wireshark. Right-click on a packet from the file transfer and select "Follow UDP Stream"

    [EDIT]

    SW1(config)# monitor session 1 source interface <port phone is connected to>
    SW1(config)# monitor session 1 destination interface <port PC with wireshark is connected to>

    If the TFTP service is running in CUCM you can run a tftp client on your pc as long as it has connectivity to the CUCM and pull the SEPXXX.cnf.xml file. To view the file just right click and choose edit in notepad the xml contents will be available to view then.
    In life you have to make your own opportunities. Don't let anyone stop you from your dreams to many negative people want you to fail because they can't succeed.

    I know relevant now, but...

    IF you want to inspect the contents, then from the IOS just issue the command more flash:/<FILE_NAME>

    IOS follows alot of the shell behavior of Linux so you do this with any file in your router/switch flash
