In order to get firmware you will need a Cisco support contract. Then you should be able to download all the firmware to your hearts content.

Subject: Re: [cisco-voip] Cheap CME platform?
Thanks everyone I got CME 4.1 working on the 2621XM with 128mb ram. Only thing now is I'm trying to figure out how to identify which loads I need to use for my phones. I'm not sure if I will need a older load since the call manager is so old? I have a few 7960's that I converted to SIP a long time ago. I think I am familiar enough to figure out how to convert the phones just not sure which firmware I need.
What's the latest load/fw for 7960 I can use with CME 4.1?

Your on the right track with the xm platform. Do you have cme code. If you can get it the file name is called c2600-adventerprisek9-mz.124-25a is the last ios made for the 2600 series is overkill but will do all.
Also for the cme file you want is called cme-124-15XZ2.zip is cme 4.3 and if you want to do any TCL scripting that file is called cme-bacd-188.8.131.52.tar.
You will have to spend some coin either way everyone says gns3 will work which it does. Personally i like a hardware lab. Ebay will be your friend, keep in mind sellers with low ratings are usually untrust worthy.

Can anyone recommend a cheap platform for cme? I am new to cisco voice and want to learn it. even if its starting out with cme 4.x or something old. i have a 2620xm but i dont have enough flash or ram and it looks to be almost $300 to upgrade it. also have a 1841 but it doesnt appear to be able to run cme. Im hoping i can find something cheaper to run cme on. I also stumbled across the fact that you can boot IOS via TFTP so I was thinking maybe I could squeeze things into a smaller flash by putting some bits on TFTP.
Thanks for any advice you have
