Configuration Menus on the Cisco Unified IP Phone

The Cisco Unified IP Phones 7961G/7961G-GE and 7941G/7941G-GE includes the following configuration menus:

Network Configuration menu—Provides options for viewing and making a variety of network settings. For more information, see the "Network Configuration Menu" section.

Device Configuration menu—Provides access to sub-menus from which you can view a variety of non network-related settings. For more information, see the "Device Configuration Menu" section.

Before you can change option settings on the Network Configuration menu, you must unlock options for editing. See the "Unlocking and Locking Options" section for instructions.

For information about the keys you can use to edit or change option settings, see the "Editing Values" section.

You can control whether a phone user has access to phone settings by using the Settings Access field in the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Phone Configuration Settings page. See the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Guide for more information.

Unlocking and Locking Options

Configuration options that can be changed from a phone are locked by default to prevent users from making changes that could affect the operation of a phone. You must unlock these options before you can change them.

When options are inaccessible for modification, a locked padlock icon appears on the configuration menus. When options are unlocked and accessible for modification, an unlocked padlock icon appears on these menus.

To unlock or lock options, press **#. This action either locks or unlocks the options, depending on the previous state. If a password is configured on the phone, you must enter the password after pressing **#.

Make sure to lock options after you have made your changes.


Caution Do not press **# to unlock options and then immediately press **# again to lock options. The phone will interpret this sequence as **#**, which will reset the phone. To lock options after unlocking them, wait at least 10 seconds before you press **# again.

When you edit the value of an option setting, follow these guidelines:

Use the keys on the keypad to enter numbers and letters.

To enter letters using the keypad, use a corresponding number key. Press the key one or more times to display a particular letter. For example, press the 2 key once for "a," twice quickly for "b," and three times quickly for "c." After you pause, the cursor automatically advances to allow you to enter the next letter.

To enter a period (for example, in an IP address), press the . (period) softkey or press * on the keypad.

Press the << softkey if you make a mistake. This softkey deletes the character to the left of the cursor.

Press the Cancel softkey before pressing the Save softkey to discard any changes that you have made.


Note The Cisco Unified IP Phone provides several methods you can use to reset or restore option settings, if necessary. For more information, see the "Resetting or Restoring the Cisco Unified IP Phone" section on page 9-15.

Overview of Options Configurable from a Phone

Device Configuration Menu

Device Configuration Menu

The Device Configuration menu provides access to twelve sub-menus from which you can view a variety of settings that are specified in the configuration file for a phone. (The phone downloads the configuration file from the TFTP server.) These sub-menus are:

CallManager Configuration Menu

SIP Configuration Menu

Call Preferences Menu

HTTP Configuration Menu

Locale Configuration Menu

UI Configuration Menu

Media Configuration Menu

Ethernet Configuration Menu

Security Configuration Menu

QoS Configuration Menu

Network Configuration

For instructions about how to access the Device Configuration menu and its sub-menus, see the "Displaying a Configuration Menu" section.

CallManager Configuration Menu

The CallManager Configuration menu contains the options CallManager 1, CallManager 2, CallManager 3, CallManager 4, and CallManager 5. These options show Cisco Unified CallManager servers that are available for processing calls from the phone, in prioritized order.

To change these options, use Cisco Unified CallManager Administration.

For an available Cisco Unified CallManager server, an option on the CallManager Configuration menu will show the Cisco Unified CallManager server IP address or name and one of the following states:

Active—Cisco Unified CallManager server from which the phone is currently receiving call-processing services.

Standby—Cisco Unified CallManager server to which the phone switches if the current server becomes unavailable.

Blank—No current connection to this Cisco Unified CallManager server.

An option may also display one of more of the following designations or options:

SRST designation—Indicates a Survivable Remote Site Telephony router capable of providing Cisco Unified CallManager functionality with a limited feature set. This router assumes control of call processing if all other Cisco Unified CallManager servers become unreachable. The SRST Cisco Unified CallManager always appears last in the list of servers, even if it is active.

You configure an SRST router address in the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration SRST Reference Configuration page (choose System > SRST). You configure an SRST reference in the Device Pool Configuration page (choose System > Device Pool).

TFTP designation—Indicates that the phone was unable to register with a Cisco Unified CallManager listed in its configuration file and it registered with the TFTP server instead.

Authentication icon—Appears as a shield and indicates that the connection to the Cisco Unified CallManager is authenticated. For more information about authentication, refer to the Cisco Unified CallManager Security Guide.

Encrypted icon—Appears as a padlock and indicates that the connection to the Cisco Unified CallManager is authenticated and encrypted. For more information about authentication and encryption, refer to the Cisco Unified CallManager Security Guide.

The Network Configuration menu contains the Load Server option. The Load Server option is used to optimize installation time for phone firmware upgrades. You can set the Load Server to another TFTP server IP address or name (other than the TFTP Server 1 or TFTP Server 2) from which the phone firmware can be retrieved for upgrades on the phones. When the Load Server option is set, the phone contacts the designated server for the firmware upgrade.

To configure the Load Server option, use the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Phone Configuration page, Product Specific Configuration section.
