    We've done this... Nathan from our team might be able to shed some light or send you a sample config for the Cisco phones. What firmware are you running on the Cisco's?

          I posted a video on that describes how to set up a SIP softphone; we do CISCO 79XX; and Sipura/Linksys as well as Linksys Wireless Handset using SIP. A key element is providing the Virtual IP addresss of the Proxy server for single IP access to multiple proxy servers. There are a variety of limiations on sip extensions and you should see ShoreTel applicatiion note AN-10078. - Drvoip.

          if you send me an email I have also put together a document describing how to set up Linksys Wireless WP330 as a SIP extension. [email protected]

          I will update it to show CISCO 79XX as well
