    Table 2 TFTP Server Settings Menu

    Option

    Description

    To select or change

    TFTP server settings

    Use alternate TFTP server

    Indicates whether Cisco Cius is using an alternative TFTP server.

    Tap Use Alternate TFTP Server to enable or disable.

    TFTP server 1

    Primary TFTP server used by Cisco Cius. If you are not using DHCP in your network and you want to change this server, you must use the TFTP server 1 option.

    If you enable the Alternate TFTP option, you must enter a non-zero value for the TFTP server 1 option.

    1. Tap to enable Use alternate TFTP server.
    2. Select TFTP server 1.
    3. Enter a new TFTP server IP address.
    4. Tap OK.

    TFTP server 2

    Optional backup TFTP server that Cisco Cius uses if the primary TFTP server is unavailable.

    1. Tap to enable Use alternate TFTP server.
    2. Select TFTP server 2.
    3. Enter a new TFTP server IP address.
    4. Tap OK.

    Note


    After the correct TFTP server is set, check the check box for the Alternate TFTP server check box. This prevents the Cisco Cius device from discovering another TFTP server if it connects to another network outside the corporate campus.


    If neither the primary TFTP server nor the backup TFTP server is listed in the CTL or ITL file on the Cisco Cius device, you must erase the file before you can save changes to the TFTP Server 1 (Server 2) option. In this case, Cisco Cius deletes the file after you save changes to the TFTP Server 1 (Server 2) option. A new CTL or ITL file downloads from the new TFTP Server 1 (Server 2) address.

    After Cisco Cius looks for its TFTP server, it gives precedence to manually assigned TFTP servers, regardless of the protocol. If your configuration includes both IPv6 and IPv4 TFTP servers, Cisco Cius prioritizes the order that it looks for its TFTP server by giving priority to manually assigned IPv6 TFTP servers and IPv4 TFTP servers. Cisco Cius looks for its TFTP server in this order:

    1. Any manually assigned IPv6 TFTP servers
    2. Any manually assigned IPv4 TFTP servers

      Note


      For information about the CTL or ITL file, see the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guide.

    IPv4 Configuration

    In the IPv4 Setup configuration submenu, you can do the following:

    • Enable or disable Cisco Cius to use the IP address that is assign by the DHCP server.
    • Manually set the IP Address, Gateway, Netmask, Domain name, and DNS Servers.

    For more information about the IPv4 address fields, see IP v4 Configuration Menu.

    MAC Address

    Unique Media Access Control (MAC) address of Cisco Cius.

    Display only - Cannot configure.

    OP VLAN ID

    Auxiliary Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) configured on a Cisco Catalyst switch in which Cisco Cius is a member.

    If Cisco Cius has not received an auxiliary VLAN, this option indicates the Administrative VLAN.

    If neither the auxiliary VLAN nor the Administrative VLAN are configured, this option is blank.

    Display only - Cannot configure.

    Cisco Cius obtains its Operational VLAN ID via Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) or Link Level Discovery Protocol Media Endpoint Discovery (LLDP-MED). This information comes from the switch to which Cisco Cius is attached. To assign a VLAN ID manually, use the Admin VLAN ID option.

    Admin VLAN ID

    Auxiliary VLAN in which Cisco Cius is a member.

    Used only if Cisco Cius does not receive an auxiliary VLAN from the switch; otherwise it is ignored.

    Select Admin VLAN ID.

    PC VLAN

    Allows Cisco Cius to interoperate with third-party switches that do not support a voice VLAN. The Admin VLAN ID option must be set before you can change this option.

    Display only - Cannot configure.

    SW port speed

    Speed and duplex of the Network port. Valid values:

    • Auto Negotiate
    • 10 Half - 10-BaseT/half duplex
    • 10 Full - 10-BaseT/full duplex
    • 100 Half - 100-BaseT/half duplex
    • 100 Full - 100-BaseT/full duplex
    • 1000 Full - 1000-BaseT/full duplex

    If Cisco Cius is connected to a switch, configure the port on the switch to the same speed/duplex as Cisco Cius, or configure both to auto-negotiate.

    If you change the setting of this option, you must change the PC Port Configuration option to the same setting.

    1. Select SW port speed to display options.
    2. Select the setting that you want.
    3. Tap the selection.

    PC port speed

    Speed and duplex of the Computer (access) port. Valid values:

    • 100 Half - 100-BaseT/half duplex
    • 100 Full - 100-BaseT/full duplex
    • 1000 Full - 1000-BaseT/full duplex

    If Cisco Cius is connected to a switch, configure the port on the switch to the same speed/duplex as the Cisco Cius, table or configure both to auto-negotiate.

    If you change the setting of this option, you must change the SW Port Configuration option to the same setting.

    1. Select PC port speed to display options.
    2. Select the setting that you want.
    3. Tap the selection.

    To configure the setting on multiple Cisco Cius devices simultaneously, enable the Remote Port Configuration in the Enterprise Phone Configuration (System > Enterprise Phone Configuration).
