Adding Ringtones to CallManger 4.X

Occasionally, you just have to make an interesting ring tone. My favorite is to take the popular Youtube video and pull out excerpts, make a ring tone, then sneak it on someone’s phone…:) I’m a classy guy, what can I say?

So, I use Audacity Portable to chop up my file. Once I have it the way I want, I save it as a wav. I then use sound recorder, yes the built-in windows sound recorder, to open, then resave in the proper format. You save it as CCITT u-Law.


Then rename the file to .raw and upload it to your Callmanager in the c:\Program Files\Cisco\TFTPPath folder.

Edit the Ringlist.xml file and add your new file.

You will probably need to restart the “Cisco TFTP” service, since the tftp service is set to cach by default.

Have fun, and I hope you enjoy the muffins Jacob! :P~
