About Configuring Your Voice Gateway

The Cisco VG202, Cisco VG202XM, Cisco VG204, and Cisco VG204XM voice gateways ship with a default configuration. During the first boot up, the voice gateways do not enter setup mode and are configured through auto-configuration.

If you prefer to configure the voice gateway manually or if you wish to configure a module or interface that is not included in the setup command, proceed to "Chapter 3 "Configuring Your Voice Gateway Using the CLI," for step-by-step instructions.

If you prefer to configure the voice gateway using AutoInstall, see Using AutoInstall to Remotely Configure Cisco Networking Devices.

Preparing to Configure Your Cisco Voice Gateway

Procedure


Step 1 Set up the hardware as described in the Cisco VG202, Cisco VG202XM, Cisco VG204, and Cisco VG204XM Voice Gateways Hardware Installation Guide.

Step 2 Configure your PC terminal emulation program for 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit.

Step 3 Determine which network protocols you support.

Step 4 Determine the addressing plan for each network protocol.


Using the setup Command

The setup command is displayed in your PC terminal emulation program window.


Note If you make a mistake while using the setup command, you can exit and run the command again. Press Ctrl-C, and enter setup at the enable mode prompt (VG#).


Procedure


Step 1 Plug in the external power supply.

The system begins to display messages in your terminal emulation program window.


Caution The voice gateway does not enter setup mode during the initial configuration. During initial configuration, the voice gateway boots up in auto-configuration. You can only use the setup command to configure the voice gateway manually after the initial configuration. Using the setup command during the initial configuration erases the default configuration and must be avoided.


Caution Do not press any keys on the keyboard until the messages stop. The system interprets any keys pressed during this time as the first command typed when the messages stop, which might cause the voice gateway to power off and start over. It takes a few minutes for the messages to stop.

The messages look similar to the following example.

System configuration has been modified. Save? [yes/no]: n
Proceed with reload? [confirm]

         --- System Configuration Dialog ---
 
   
Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]: y
 
   
At any point you may enter a question mark '?' for help.
Use ctrl-c to abort configuration dialog at any prompt.
Default settings are in square brackets '[]'.
 
   

Step 2 When the following message appears, enter yes to begin the initial configuration dialog:

Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]:
 
   

Step 3 When the following message appears, press Return to see the current interface summary:

First, would you like to see the current interface summary? [yes]: 
 
   
Any interface listed with OK? value "NO" does not have a valid configuration
 
   
Interface       							IP-Address     OK? Method Status        											Protocol 
FastEthernet0/0            unassigned      NO  unset  up                    up      
FastEthernet0/1            unassigned      NO  unset  up                    down
 
   

Step 4 Enter a hostname for the voice gateway:

Configuring global parameters:
 
   
  Enter hostname [VG]: VG204
 
   
The enable secret is a password used to protect access to privileged EXEC and 
configuration modes. This password, after entered, becomes encrypted in the configuration.
 
   

Step 5 Enter an enable secret password. This password is encrypted (more secure) and cannot be seen when viewing the configuration:

 
   
The enable secret is a password used to protect access to
  privileged EXEC and configuration modes. This password, after
  entered, becomes encrypted in the configuration.
  Enter enable secret: cisco
 
   

Step 6 Enter an enable password that is different from the enable secret password. This password is not encrypted (less secure) and can be seen when viewing the configuration:

 
   
The enable password is used when you do not specify an
  enable secret password, with some older software versions, and
  some boot images.
  Enter enable password: cisco
% Please choose a password that is different from the enable secret
  Enter enable password: cisco 
 
   

Step 7 Enter the virtual terminal password, which prevents unauthenticated access to the voice gateway through ports other than the console port:

The virtual terminal password is used to protect
  access to the VG over a network interface.
  Enter virtual terminal password: cisco
  Configure SNMP Network Management? [yes]: n
Configure IP? [yes]: 
    Configure RIP routing? [yes]: n
  Configure bridging? [no]:
 
   

Step 8 Respond to the following prompts as appropriate for your network:

Do you want to configure FastEthernet0/0  interface? [yes]: 
  Use the 100 Base-TX (RJ-45) connector? [yes]: 
  Operate in full-duplex mode? [no]: 
  Configure IP on this interface? [yes]: 
    IP address for this interface: 9.13.38.150
    Subnet mask for this interface [255.0.0.0] : 255.255.255.0
    Class A network is 9.0.0.0, 24 subnet bits; mask is /24
 
   
Do you want to configure FastEthernet0/1  interface? [yes]: n 
 
   
Would you like to go through AutoSecure configuration? [yes]: n
AutoSecure dialog can be started later using "auto secure" CLI
 
   
The following configuration command script was created:

end

Completing the Configuration

After you have entered all the prompted information for the setup command, the system displays the configuration.

Procedure


Step 1 The system asks if you want to save this configuration, with the following options:

[0] Go to the IOS command prompt without saving this config.
[1] Return back to the setup without saving this config.
[2] Save this configuration to nvram and exit.
 
   

If you enter 0, the system does not save the configuration information that you entered, and you return to the voice gateway enable prompt (VG#). Enter setup to return to the system configuration dialog.

If you enter 1, the system returns you to the setup command without saving the configuration.

If you enter 2, the system saves the configuration and returns you to the user EXEC prompt (VG>).

Step 2 When the messages stop appearing on your screen, press Return to get the VG> prompt.

Step 3 The VG> prompt indicates that you are now at the CLI and you have just completed a basic voice gateway configuration. However, this is not a complete configuration. At this point you have two choices:

Run the setup command again and create another configuration. Enter the following:

VG> enable
Password: password
VG# setup
 
   

Modify the existing configuration or configure additional features with the CLI as described in Chapter 3 "Configuring Your Voice Gateway Using the CLI."
