Polycom ip 331 updating initial configuration

Rated 3.81/5 based on 556 customer reviews

First off, you’re going to need an FTP server to serve the necessary files to the phones. I have an “Apps server” that my Lync utils live on, so it made sense that this was where I’d put Filezilla and the Polycom firmware and config.

If you haven’t yet, source the bootrom and firmware from here, copy them to the Firmware folder and explode.

A copy of this screen is included in Step 4, below.

This section deals with a typical setup for the Polycom Soundpoint IP 331.

If you do not know the Administrator password, try the default password “456” or the common Pure Cloud default password “1234.” If these default passwords don’t work, reset the phone to the default factory settings.

there are some areas where this is intentionally vague, as I've tried to avoid revealing too much about our private corporate administrative structure.

If you feel the phone’s settings have been misconfigured you can put the phone back to a factory default state.

Doing so clears all settings allowing you to re-configure the DHCP and provision server settings in the phone.

Here’s a quick walk-through of what I had to do to get it working in my Lab.

It requests the following files in this order: whichever image it's using, [mac-address]if it exists or 000000000000otherwise, the image, [mac-address]-phone.cfg, [mac-address]-web.cfg, and [mac-address]

So, we're going to rewrite some of these requests to our scripts instead.

These instructions have been written to Firmware version

The Firmware version is displayed on the opening screen.
