Error updating locale cisco ip communicator

I’d also like to give a special thanks to Sean Walberg for suggesting Wireshark (tshark) for helping to debug connection and other TCP/IP issues (along with an immense amount of guidance and other troubleshooting tips) and to Angel Castaneda for always providing helpful suggestions to get me pointed in the right direction.

Now, with the introduction out of the way, let’s begin.

The Asterisk NOW install is a complete installation package available for free that runs off of the Cent OS Linux distribution.

The Cisco IP Phones require configuration files downloaded from a TFTP server for their internal settings.

We will get into the configuration files later, for now we will just be setting up the TFTP server.

The first step is to connect to the Asterisk server via SSH as root.

Once connected to the server, install the TFTP software: The TFTP server is an ‘xinet’ application and therefore xinetd will also need to be installed if it is not already. By default, the folder used by the TFTP server is /tftpboot. Once installed run the following commands to ensure that both xinetd and the TFTP server are initialized on server startup: NOTE: The TFTP server for the Cisco IP Phones can be located on a different server if desired.

I chose to install it on the same server as Asterisk for 1) simplicity, and 2) to ensure the system was self-contained.
