Configuring IP Settings

Use these guidelines to manually configure the IP Settings.

You can use 0.0.0.0 for the subnet mask only if the default gateway is also 0.0.0.0.

Ensure the TFTP server has an IP address.

Ensure the default gateway IP address is on the same subnet as the host IP address.

Assigning an IP Address


Note You can only manually assign an IP address if DHCP is disabled.


The IP address is the unique logical address identifying each host computer, or node, on a TCP/IP network. An IP address is a 32-bit number expressed as four decimal numbers from 0 to 255 separated by periods.

Each IP address has two parts: the network ID and the host ID. The network ID identifies all hosts that are on the same physical network. The host ID identifies a specific host on a network.

Follow these steps to assign an IP address.


Step 1 Press the Up or Down scroll button to select IP address.

The current IP address is displayed.

Step 2 Use the < softkey to delete the current IP address.

Step 3 Use the dialing pad to enter a new IP address.

Use the . softkey to enter periods (.) and the < softkey to correct any mistakes.

Step 4 Press the Save softkey to save your changes.


Assigning a Subnet Mask


Note You can only manually assign a subnet mask if DHCP is disabled.


The subnet mask is used to partition the IP address into a network and a host identifier. The subnet mask is used to mask a portion of the IP address so that TCP/IP can distinguish the network ID from the host ID.

Follow these steps to assign a subnet mask.


Step 1 Press the Up or Down scroll button to select IP Mask.

Step 2 Use the < softkey to delete the current subnet mask.

Step 3 Use the dialing pad to enter a new subnet mask.

Use the . softkey to enter periods (.) and the < softkey to correct any mistakes.

Step 4 Press the Save softkey to save your changes.


Assigning a Default Gateway


Note You can only manually assign a default gateway if DHCP is disabled.


When you manually assign an IP address to an IP Conference Station, you can assign the default gateway to be used.

Follow these steps to assign a default gateway.


Step 1 Press the Up or Down scroll button to select Router 1.

Step 3 Use the dialing pad to enter a new IP address.

Use the . softkey to enter periods (.) and the < softkey to correct any mistakes.

Step 4 Press the Save softkey to save your changes.


Assigning a Domain Name

The domain name is the name of the Domain Name System (DNS) domain in which the IP Conference Station is located. DNS is a hierarchical name for TCP/IP host computers that provides standard naming conventions.

Follow these steps to assign a domain name.


Step 1 Press the Up or Down scroll button to select Domain.

Step 2 Use the dialing pad to enter a new domain name.

To enter letters, use the numbers associated with a particular letter. For example, the 2 key has the letters ABC. For a lower case "a," press 2 twice. Press the 2 key repeatedly to scroll through the available letters and numbers. Pause after the selected letter appears on the display.

Press the < softkey to correct any mistakes. Press the .sp-_ softkey to use a period (.), space, dash (-), or underscore (_) character.

Step 3 Press the Save softkey to save your changes.


Assigning DNS Servers

DNS allows users to specify remote computers by host names, which are character strings with some mnemonic value, rather than IP addresses, which are strings of numbers.

The IP Conference Station uses DNS to resolve the host name of TFTP servers, Cisco CallManager systems, and web server host names when the system is configured to use names rather than IP addresses.

Follow these steps to assign a DNS server.


Step 1 Press the Up or Down scroll button to select DNS.

Step 2 Use the dialing pad to enter a new DNS server address.

Use the . softkey to enter periods (.). Use the < softkey to correct any mistakes.

Step 3 Press the Save softkey to save your changes.


Configuring VLAN Options

You can change the administrative VLAN used by the IP Conference Station. However, if you have an auxiliary VLAN assigned on the Cisco Catalyst switch, that setting overrides any changes made on the IP Conference Station.

Follow these steps to configure the VLAN ID on the IP Conference Station.


Step 1 Press the Up or Down scroll button to select Adm VLAN.

Step 2 Press the < softkey to erase the current VLAN ID.

Step 3 Use the dialing pad to enter a new VLAN ID (0 - 4095).
