Network Configuration Menu

 

The Network Configuration menu provides options for viewing and making a variety of network settings. The following tables describe these options and, where applicable, explain how to change them.

 

For information about how to access the Network Configuration menu, see Display Settings Menu.

 

Note The phone also has a Network Configuration menu that you access directly from the Settings menu. For information about the options on that menu, see the table below. 

 

Before you can change an option on this menu, you must unlock options as described in the Unlock and Lock Options. The Edit, Yes, or No softkeys for changing network configuration options appear only if options are unlocked.

 

For information about the keys you can use to edit options, see Value Input Guidelines.

IPv4 Configuration

 

Internet Protocol v4 address menu. In the IPv4 Configuration menu, you can do the following:

  • Enable or disable the phone to use the IPv4 address that is assigned by the DHCPv4 server. 

  • Manually set the IPv4 Address, Subnet Mask, Default Routers, DNSv4 Server, and Alternate TFTP servers for IPv4.


For more information on the IPv4 address fields, see the specific field within this table.

IPv6 Configuration


Internet Protocol v6 address menu. In the IPv6 Configuration menu, you can do the following:

  • Enable or disable the phone to use the IPv6 address that is assigned by the DHCPv6 server or to use the IPv6 address that it acquires through Stateless Address Autoconfiguration (SLAAC).

  • Manually set the IPv6 Address, Subnet Prefix Length, DNSv6 Server, and IPv6 TFTP Servers. For more information on the IPv6 address fields, see IPv6 Configuration Menu Options. 


For more information on SLAAC, see Deploying IPv6 in Unified Communications Networks with Cisco Unified Communications Manager, located at http://www.cisco.com/en/ US/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/srnd/ipv6/ ipv6srnd.html.

 

 

Set IPv6 Configuration Fields


MAC address

Display only—Cannot configure.


Host Name


Unique host name that the DHCP server assigned to the phone.      


Display only—Cannot configure.


Domain Name


Name of the Domain Name System (DNS) domain in which the phone resides.

If the phone receives different domain names from the DHCPv4 and DHCPv6 servers, the domain name from the DHCPv6 will take precedence.


Set Domain Name Field
      

 

Operational VLAN ID


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

 

If the phone 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.

 

The phone obtains its Operational VLAN ID via Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) from the switch to which the phone is attached. To assign a VLAN ID manually, use the Admin VLAN ID option.

 

Admin. VLAN ID

 

Auxiliary VLAN in which the phone is a member.


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

 


Set Admin VLAN ID Field

  • 100 Full—100-BaseT/full duplex
  • 1000 Full—1000-BaseT/full duplex

If the phone is connected to a switch, configure the port on the switch to the same speed/duplex as the phone, 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.


Set SW Port Configuration Field

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

 

Set PC Port Configuration Field

If you assign an IPv4 address with this option, you must also assign a subnet mask and default router. See Subnet Mask and Default Router 1 options in this table.

 

Set IP Address Field


Subnet Mask


Subnet mask used by the phone.


Set Subnet Mask Field

Display only—Cannot configure.

 

DHCP Address Released

 

 

Releases the IPv4 address assigned by DHCP.


Set DHCP Address Released Field


Alternate TFTP


Indicates whether the phone is using an alternative TFTP server.

 

Set Alternate TFTP Field

 

TFTP Server 1

 
Primary Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server used by the phone. 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 set the Alternate TFTP option to Yes, you must enter a non-zero value for the TFTP Server 1 option.


If neither the primary TFTP server nor the backup TFTP server is listed in the CTL file or ITL file on the phone, you must unlock the files before you can save changes to the TFTP Server 1 option. In this case, the phone will delete the file when you save changes to the TFTP Server 1 option. A new CTL or ITL file is downloaded from the new TFTP Server 1 address.


When the phone 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, the phone prioritizes the order that it looks for its TFTP server by giving priority to manually assigned IPv6 TFTP servers and IPv4 TFTP servers. The phone looks for its TFTP server in the following order

1 Any manually assigned IPv6 TFTP servers

2 Any manually assigned IPv4 TFTP servers

3 DHCPv6 assigned TFTP servers

4 DHCP assigned TFTP servers Note


Note

For information about the CTL and ITL files, see Cisco Unified Communications Manager Security Guide. For information about unlocking CTL and ITL files, see Unlock CTL and ITL Files.

 
Set TFTP Server 1 Field

 
TFTP Server 2

 
Optional backup TFTP server that the phone with an IPv4 address uses if the primary TFTP server is unavailable.


If neither the primary TFTP server nor the backup TFTP server is listed in the CTL or ITL files on the phone, you must unlock the file before you can save changes to the TFTP Server 2 option. In this case, the phone will delete the file when you save changes to the TFTP Server 2 option. A new CTL file or ITL file is downloaded from the new TFTP Server 2 address.


When the phone 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, the phone prioritizes the order that it looks for its TFTP server by giving priority to manually assigned IPv6 TFTP servers and IPv4 TFTP servers. The phone looks for its TFTP server in the following order:
1 Manually assigned IPv6 TFTP servers

2 Manually assigned IPv4 TFTP servers

3 DHCPv6 assigned TFTP servers

DHCPv6

 
Indicates whether the phone has DHCP enabled or disabled.


When DHCPv6 is enabled, the DHCPv6 server assigns the phone an IPv6 address. When DHCP v6 is disabled, the administrator must manually assign an IPv6 address to the phone.


The DHCPv6 setting along with the Auto IP Configuration setting determine how the IP Phone obtains its network settings. For more information on how these two settings affect the network settings on the phone, see DHCPv6 and Autoconfiguration.

 
Set DHCPv6 Field


IPv6 Address


Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) address of the phone. The IPv6 address is a 128 bit address.


If you assign an IP address with this option, you must also assign the IPv6 prefix length and default router. See IPv6 Subnet Prefix option in this table.


Set IPv6 Address Field


IPv6 Prefix Length


Subnet prefix length that is used by the phone. The subnet prefix length is a decimal value from 1-128, that specifies the portion of the IPv6 address that comprises the subnet.


Set IPv6 Prefix Length Field

Note

The phone obtains information on the default router from IPv6 Router Advertisements.


Display only—Cannot configure.


IPv6 DNS Server 1

IPv6 DNS Server 2


Primary Domain Name System (DNS) server (DNS Server 1) and optional backup DNS servers (DNS Server 2) used by the phone.


If your configuration includes both DNSv6 and DNSv4 servers, the phone will look for its DNS server in the following order:

If you set the IPv6 Alternate TFTP option to Yes or you disable DHCPv6, you must enter a non-zero value for the IPv6 TFTP Server 1 option.

 

If you make changes to the Alternate TFTP or IPv6 TFTP servers, you must first unlock the CTL file or ITL file on the phone.

 

When the phone 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, the phone prioritizes the order that it looks for its TFTP server by giving priority to manually assigned IPv6 TFTP servers and IPv4 TFTP servers. The phone looks for its TFTP server in the following order:

 

1 Manually assigned IPv6 TFTP Servers

2 Manually assigned IPv4 TFTP Servers

3 DHCPv6 assigned TFTP Servers

4 DHCP assigned TFTP Servers
