When a user tries to take the screenshot of the current IP phone screen display via the http://<phoneIP>/CGI/Screenshot URL, a <CiscoIPPhoneError Number="x"/> error message appears on the browser window.


Note: The http://<phoneIP>/CGI/Screenshot URL returns an exact snapshot of the current phone display. The size and format of the image returned is model-specific.


The <CiscoIPPhoneError Number="x"/> error message occurs due to various reasons such as authentication, timeout, and network. In this example the error message occurs due to a case-sensitive URL used on the browser to get the snapshot of the IP phone display.

Cisco IP Phones have an embedded web server to provide a programming interface for external applications, and a debugging and management interface for system administrators.

You can access the administrative pages by using a standard web browser and pointing to the IP address of the phone with the http://<phoneIP>/HTML URL or XML URL, where phoneIP is the IP address of the specific phone.

Refer to Accessing IP Phone Information for more information about the phone accessing URL.
