AsteriskNOW and Cisco 7940G

Was working on Asterisk configuration with CISCO 7940 IP phones.
There are many links which let configure this phone, this is just an overview of what I did to get this up and running
Configuring AsteriskNow is very simple. Below are the details to setup a IP-PBX.


  1. Old CPU laying somewhere.
  2. IP Phone (Cisco 7940/7960)
  3. DHCP and TFTP Server (for Firmware upgrade)


  1. Download AsteriskNOW
  2. Configure Asterisk. (More howto later, for now important is to create users without NAT)
    1. Create a Trunk
    2. Create a Dialplan
    3. Create users (On catch here is when we create a User make sure to uncheck “NAT“)
  3. Configure IP Phone used the link here which is very helpful (Attached are files required firmware / conf files etc).

Thats it !! IP phone should be up and running.
