Reprovision Syspine 310 Response Point phones for 3CX

While at a 3CX Training Event in Atlanta, Georgia, recently I received a call from one of my ‘old’ Response Point customers.  He had bought the system when Microsoft still liked it and it has been doing a good job for him even still.  It seems an ATM service technician had knocked the RP server off its shelf.  It’s not clear what happened next but stories give the impression that it hit him on the head first and then crashed to the floor.  The tech was not forthcoming with the story so there is no first had corroboration.  Jeff said he would be okay until the next day when I would be back in town and get him set up with a new 3CX Business Phone System.  On the phone I told Jeff I would see if I might be able to use his old phones – he liked that.  While at the conference I asked a few people about redeploying Syspine RP phones for 3CX and no one knew that it had been done satisfactorily before.  I emailed to the Director at Syspine that is/was very involved with the RP system to see if there were a firmware flash needed to use their phones as regular IP phones.  I heard back promptly from Bob but frankly wasn’t sure how to use the stuff he sent me.  It seemed to be the standard package to convert their RP server to their new non-RP system.  Anyway, I just started tinkering around in the phone management web interface and found I could get the functionality that would make the phones useful to the customer.  The customer is a Retail store with a half dozen phones and only need/want basics from the phones.  This configuration provided message waiting indicator light, voice mail button, call transfer button and hold.
