I know the rules say no device-specific troubleshooting, but I've gotten this to the packet-level capture and still don't know why it's failing. Had I known this 7961 would be so #*(%^ difficult to configure manually, I would have thrown it away and ordered a Grandstream or something. Anyway, too much time invested now to turn back.

So far I've:
- Converted SCCP phone to SIP image (8.5.2)
- Figured out how to create the SEPXXXXX.cfg.xml file (and configured sip.voipwelcome.com and username from the BYOD panel, and the password from the last email).
- tried many configuration options, including enabling NAT support, but I still can't get registered.

Today I captured packets from the phone starting up. The registration message *seems* to me to be formatted correctly, but I'm getting a "401 Unauthorized" message back from VOIPo.

Here's the register packet from my phone. This is captured inside the network so you see the private IP instead of the public IP on the network layer of the packet.

The first reply is a "Status: 100 Trying" immediately followed by a "Status: 401 Unauthorized" message. I'm hoping someone can tell me what the VOIPo server doesn't like about this invite and I'll figure out how to beat this phone into submission.
