NOTE: You can modify the settings file to set parameters for IP telephones that download their upgrade script and application files from the same HTTP server. See Chapter 4: Maintaining 9600 Series IP Telephones and “9600 Series IP Telephone Scripts and Application Files” in Chapter 4 of the Avaya one-X Deskphone Edition for 9600 Series IP Telephones Administrator Guide.

Use these option-setting procedures only with static addressing and, as always, only if instructed by the system or LAN administrator. Do not use these option-setting procedures if you are using DHCP. DHCP is the Dynamic Addressing Process, as indicated in Dynamic Addressing Process.
