Overview

This SIP 480i IP Phone Administration Guide provides information on the basic network setup that is required for the SIP 480i IP phone. It also includes details on the functioning and configuration of the 480i phone.

General Requirements

A SIP based IP PBX system or network installed and running with a number created for the new 480i phone.

SIP standard "RFC 3261"

Access to a Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server.

802.3 Ethernet/Fast Ethernet LAN.

Category 5/5e straight through cabling.

Power over Ethernet (PoE) power supply (optional accessory – necessary only if no inline power is provided on the network).

About this Guide

SIP 480i IP Phone Admin Guide 1

Methods of Installation

The firmware set up and installation for the 480i can be done through the Options List available directly from the phone or through the Vertical 480i Web Client web interface. When the 480i is initialized for the first time, DHCP is enabled by default. The DHCP server passes information to the 480i so that it can configure itself for subsequent IP PBX addresses and normal runtime operations.

The following considerations must be made before connecting the 480i phone to the network:

If you are planning on using Dynamic IP addresses, make sure a DHCP server is running on your network.

If you are not planning on using Dynamic IP addresses, refer to the section “Configuring the 480i IP Phone” on how to set up an IP address manually.

Make sure a TFTP server is set up on your network and can accept connections anonymously.

Every PBX system that interacts with the 480i phones requires adherence to the SIP Standard.

To find out how to hook up the cabling to your 480i phone, please refer to the

Vertical 480i IP Phone Installation Guide.

2 SIP 480i IP Phone Admin Guide

480i IP Phone Set up

When the 480i is first plugged in or reset it will automatically download any firmware updates for the phone. The binary and configuration files that are required for the 480i are: “firmware.st”, “aastra.cfg” and “<mac>.cfg”. The settings of the 480i phone, as well as the softkeys and the additional line keys, can be configured through the configuration files. Please refer to Appendix A for details on the parameters that can be set for the 480i phone. Please refer to Appendix B for sample configuration files with all the basic parameters that need to be set in order to register the IP phone at the PBX.

The following steps illustrate a typical 480i phone setup:

1.If DHCP is disabled, manually enter the TFTP server’s IP address. For details on how to set the TFTP server setting for the 480i, please refer to the section “Configuring the 480i IP Phone”.

2.Copy the firmware file “firmware.st” to the root directory of the TFTP server. This firmware file is downloaded only when it is different than the one the phone is currently using.

3.Copy the configuration files “aastra.cfg” and “<mac>.cfg” file to the root directory of the TFTP server.

NOTE: <mac> represents the actual MAC address of your phone which must be input; i.e. 00085D030996.cfg

The 480i’s Options List

1.Press the button on the phone to enter the options list.

2.Use the and to scroll through the list of options.

3.Press the Show softkey, the button or press the number corresponding to the option to select an option.

4.Use the softkeys to change a selected option.

5.Press the Done softkey at any time to save the change and exit the current option.

6.Press the Cancel softkey, the button or the button at any time to exit without saving the changes.

Administrator Level Options

Some options in the phone’s options list are considered administrator level options and require the administrator user name and password. When attempting to access administrator level options, the phone will prompt for the administrator password before allowing access. The default administrator password is “22222”. For all other phone options, please refer to the Vertical 480i IP Phone Installation Guide.

The administrator level options in the phone’s Options List are:

“8.Network”

“9.SIP Settings”

“4.Factory Default” found under option “10.Phone Status”

Network:

If DHCP is enabled, all the Network settings are automatically configured. The 480i’s firmware allows the network settings to be manually entered, if for any reason the phone cannot populate any of the settings with DHCP enabled. If DHCP is disabled the following network settings can be configured manually:

1.DHCP

This turns DHCP on or off. IP Address, Subnet Mask and Gateway options are automatically populated and are read-only when DHCP is used. DHCP is used by default.

2.IP Address

This is the phone’s IP address. To assign a static IP address to the phone, disable DHCP.

3.Subnet Mask

To assign your own subnet mask to the phone, disable DHCP.

4.Gateway

To assign your own gateway IP address, disable DHCP.

5.DNS

To assign your own DNS addresses, disable DHCP.

6.TFTP Server

This allows you to select the TFTP server that the phone will use. There are three menu suboptions:

SIP 480i IP Phone Admin Guide 3

1.Primary TFTP: This is the IP address of the TFTP server that the phone will use by default. If the TFTP address is obtained through DHCP, it will override this setting. If DHCP is ON, the primary TFTP is read only.

2.Alternate TFTP: This allows you to configure an alternate TFTP to use instead of the primary server.

3.Use Primary/Use Alternate: This selects which TFTP server the phone will attempt to obtain configuration from.

SIP Settings:

If you have a proxy server or have a SIP registrar present at a different location than the PBX server, the following settings may need to be changed:

1.Proxy IP

This is the IP address of the proxy server.

2.Proxy Port

This is the SIP proxy server’s port number. By default this number is set to 5060.

3.Registrar IP

This is the IP address of the SIP registrar.

4.Registrar Port

SIP registrar’s port number. By default this is set to 5060.

5.Register

This enables and disables registration of the IP phone with the Registrar.

If YES is selected, the phone's IP address is immediately registered in the Registrar's database. If NO

4 SIP 480i IP Phone Admin Guide

is selected, the SIP phone's IP address is immediately deleted from the Registrar's database, and the phone’s screen displays "No Service".

6.User Name

This is used in the name field of the SIP URI for the 480i phone and for registering the 480i at the registrar.

7.Display Name

This is used in the display name field of the From SIP header field. Some IP PBX systems use this as the caller’s ID and some may overwrite this with the string that is set at the PBX system.

8.Screen Name

This is used to display text on the screen of the phone. You may want to set this parameter to display the phone user's name.

9.Auth Name

This is the authentication name that is used in the username field of the authorization header field. This allows the phone to identify itself to a proxy server that requires authentication. When the phone is challenged for authorization, it will re-send the challenged message with the authentication name and password.

10.Password

This is the authorization password that is used to register at the SIP registrar. When the phone is challenged for authorization, it will re-send the challenged message with the authentication name and password.

11.Nortel

This is used to specify if a Nortel NAT is being used. Select “Yes” to enable this feature if using a Nortel call server.

Phone Status:

The following options display the phone’s status or allow you to power cycle the phone or reset the phone to its factory default settings.

1.Network Status

This shows the network status of the two Ethernet ports at the back of the phone. You can also view the phone’s IP and MAC addresses.

IP Addr

Shows the IP address of the phone.

MAC Addr

The MAC or the hardware address of the 480i’s Ethernet card.

2.Firmware Version

This option displays information about the firmware that is currently installed on the 480i.

3.Restart Phone

This option lets you restart the phone. A restart may be necessary when:

There is a change in your network, or

To re-load the configuration information modified through the

configuration files to the phone, or

If the settings for the 480i on the IP PBX system had been modified.

4.Factory Default

This option lets you reset the phone back to the factory default settings, including the network settings.

NOTE: Performing this

operation will result in losing all user modified settings.
