    I'm developping an application where the phone is supposed to play a tone in order to attract the user's attention.
    I know that in order to play a tone I need to use the Play:filename in an ExecuteItem url, but my question is where is the tone file supposed to be located in order for this to work.

    The phone will look for this file on its configured TFTP server.  It needs to be in the root of the TFTP share.  Note the phone must download the entire file into memory, so only pretty small files are possible. 
     
    The streaming URIs allow for more flexibility, but of course require you to have a streaming server available.  CUAE can be very helpful as it provides this out of the box.

    When the phone boots up, it queries a configured TFTP server to download its initial configuration file and any firmware updates.  This TFTP server address can be manually configured in the phone settings, or the phone can obtain it from the DHCP server via an optional DHCP field.
     
    If the phone is up and running, it must have a TFTP server configured by one of the above methods.  For simple setups (like a lab) the TFTP server address is typically the same as the UCM address, and you can upload files to the TFTP service via the OS Administration pages of the UCM web admin.

    Ok thanks but could you be a bit more specific as to how I can upload files? Where can it be done in the administrative console of UCM?
