I've got a Cisco 112 connected up to 2Talk.
It's the home phone these days, so I need it to be reliable.

Now, I'm not saying I DO NOT TRUST VOIP AS FAR AS I CAN THROW IT but I am giving it a go.  However, because I don't trust it 100%, I want to monitor the status of this ATA.

Does anyone know how I can monitor the status of Line to ensure it's in a state of "Registered" and to Email/Tweet/SMS/Explode if it de-registers for some reason?

I've tried SNMP Walking the box, but that doesn't seem to give me a MIB I can check (Happy to hear otherwise though)

There's no way to check the status without login into the Web GUI, which rules out wget etc.

How are people monitoring their boxes?  I want to know if the phone isn't going to ring!

Awesome, thanks grudge! I've had a look at the syslog stuff, but nothing obvious stuck out there either. I didn't want to have to pull it on and offline a lot though, given it is our home phone (I can sign in using a soft client as well though, so I might do that)

Please let me know if you have any luck! :)

Do those ATA units support TR-069?

Assuming he has an SPA112, yes, they do.

Bit overkill, there might be an easier way to do this :)

Enable your syslog&debug as per

Have a syslog server running on your network writing a log file.
Monitor said log file for event as per below :

Nov 13 13:42:43 [0]RegFail. Retry in 30

Send an email notification when said event happens.

But yeah, spa112 has SNMP and tr-069 so maybe there's a simpler way to achieve this by using those methods.
