Set Phone Background



  • Justin Estermann

    I've found that I'm unable to push background images to 88XX phones (8851, in the case of the one I'm trying).

    Using Cmd:PushBackground, or Cmd:PushBackground:BackgroundImageName, I get a response "Unknown response from phone".

    I've used the troubleshooting methods you recommended in this post, and those are successful.

    Phone Personalization and Web Browser are both enabled.

    I am able to successfully perform the same methods on 7965 models without any problem.

    Any idea what might be going on?

    There was a bug on firmware 12.0.xx for 88xx phones, Is it possible you are on that firmware version?

    Also, your 88xx phone able to reach phoneview machine IP on port 9090 (default port) ?

    The version on the 8851 that I tried is sip88xx.12-8-1-0001-455, so unless they've not resolved that bug, I'm assuming we're not hitting it.

    There's no blocking in place between the phone and the PhoneView machine, unless the machine firewall is catching it. I've not seen any other blocking issue with PhoneView, so I'm not sure that's what's going on here.

    I connected to the phone via SSH and was able to ping the IP address of the PhoneView machine. I'm not sure of any command I can use from the phone's console to specifically test port 9090, since there doesn't appear to be a telnet command available on the phone.

    I did test telnetting from another PC to the PhoneView PC, on port 9090, and received the following back:
