Settings to connect a Cisco 7960 handset running SIP firmware to SIPGATE UK

Moderators: I actually came on here to post these settings on the blog I used to have on here but which seems to have disappeared, so I'm dropping this in here in the hope these settings will be useful to someone else, or more likely me in 6 months time when I've forgotten how I did it! If it's not appropriate here please let me know where to put it!

The Cisco 7960 is one of the nicest looking phones, supporting 6 lines when configured with SIP firmware. This is available from Cisco or from selected mirrors.

I found jtech.net and wiki.elchtest.eu useful very useful. ;)
I am using SIP firmware P0S3-07-4-00 as you can see from the default file.

Please note all the settings are configured to the 2nd button :) switch it to the first if you wish. I did find a slight lag in the conversation but a little tweaking or a faster internet speed might help with this.
