    Adtran IP650 Phone and Simple Remote phone setup

    mwh New Member

      Hello,

       

      I am trying to setup a phone using the simple remote phone feature on the Adtran 7100. I have configured the 7100 using the simple remote installation guide,  but I wanted to know how to configure the phone on the remote side.

       

      Thanks, Mike

          mwh,

           

          Here is a related post: Remote Phones R10, but I can add some additional information.  After following the instructions in our Configuring Simple Remote Phones for the NetVanta 7000 Series guide, the remote phones will need to be configured via DHCP from a local router to point to the WAN IP address of the remote NetVanta 7100 for FTP.  An example configuration is shown below for an AOS unit.  The tftp-server setting configures Polycom phones.  Even though this option is intended for TFTP settings you can use the trick below to bypass TFTP and specify another protocol (FTP) for the Polycom to use to download files.  Option 157 is used to configure ADTRAN IP 700 phones.

           

          The example below uses an FTP username of “polycomftp” and a password of “password”.  You will need to replace those with the proper credentials for your setup as well as replace x.x.x.x with the public IP address of the remote NetVanta 7100.

           

          !

          ip dhcp-server pool "Private"

            network 10.10.20.0 255.255.255.0

            dns-server 10.10.20.1

            netbios-node-type h-node

            default-router 10.10.20.1

            tftp-server ftp://polycomftp:password@x.x.x.x/polycom

            ntp-server 10.10.20.1

            timezone-offset -6:00

            option 157 ascii TftpServers=0.0.0.0,FtpServers=x.x.x.x:/ADTRAN,FtpLogin=polycomftp,FtpPassword=password,Layer2Tagging=True,VlanID=2

          !

           

          If you manually configure the phone you will need to input the FTP username and password credentials and public IP.  ADTRAN IP 700 phones did not have this ability until R2 firmware, so if they are running 1.3.16 or earlier you will need to upgrade them to an R2 release to allow manual FTP configuration. Instructions on how to program this manually can be found in this post: Re: IP 706 Will not download from ftp or tftp server.  Just like with SIP traffic, you can specify an ACL to only allow FTP traffic from known and trusted source IP addresses.  Our NetVanta 7000 Series Security Guide has an example of how to do this with hostnames on page 8 to account for remote sites that do not have a static public IP address.

           

          If you do not open FTP access on the WAN of the remote NetVanta 7100 you will need to alter the phone configuration parameters outlined in the Configuring Simple Remote Phones for the NetVanta 7000 Series guide and FTP them to the phone from a local FTP server.

           

          Thanks,
          Matt
