Cisco Unified IP Phone Settings

The Cisco Unified IP Phone includes many configurable network settings that you may need to modify before the phone is functional for your users. You can access these settings, and change some of them, through menus on the phone. Settings that are display-only on the phone are configured in Cisco Unified CM Administration.

This chapter includes the following topics:

Configuration Menus

The Cisco Unified IP Phone includes the following configuration menus:

  • Network Setup: Provides options for viewing and making a variety of network settings.
  • IPv4 Configuration: A sub-menu of the Network Setup menu, the IPv4 menu items provide additional network options for viewing and setting.
