I am not aware of any way to make a 3102 phone
work with an Asterisk PBX. The 3Com phones need
the downloader on the VCX in order to function.
Plus, I don't know how you'd get any of the button
mapping to work.
I wish you luck!

I've seen/heard rumors from others that they've been able to get it to work, but unfortunately I don't have any resources to provide.
I did a bit more searching as well on the "official" response,and here's what I found:
- 3Com business phones (excludes early models) will function as EITHER an NBX phone (and thus use proprietary H3 packet protocol communication) OR can be used on a 3Com VCX server (and will then communicate via industry-standard SIP protocol)
- 3Com business phones when powered off have no operating system, and therefore when powered up MUST receive their O/S from either an NBX or a VCX server only.
- Once a 3Com business set boots up and downloads it's SIP operating instructions from a VCX server, it then acts as a SIP-compliant device. Since the configuration is NOT retained when the unit is powered off, and must re-download it's O/S every time it is powered up from ONLY an NBX or VCX server, depending on what system/protocol the phone is to be used.
- This allows a 3Com business set to be used on either NBX or VCX depending on the system it is connected to at any point in time. But his also prevents the 3Com business phone from operating as a SIP phone on any other vendor's system.
Fix: No Fix: Works as Designed

Here's 3com's asterisk, v 126.96.36.199, with install instructions (it runs on an embedded type of board). I don't know anything else about this device and software, other than it has phone os~flash and boot images. There's some manuals on hp's website for this device*. Hopefully this helps.
If this violates copyrights, please message me and I'll remove it.
3Com Asterisk images. Will not run on anything else without some low-level tinkering, I would imagine.

You realize you are replying to a guy who posted this question back in 2010, right? I doubt he is still checking this board for answers to his question, in fact, he may have already died of old age by now.

I made the 2013 post, just changed my handle to my real name.
Anyone ever virtualized a vcx system? I'm sure it's possible if you can install the right drivers into the centos system that match the virtual scsi controller.
