Static Addressing Installation

The usual way to assign IP Addresses to IP telephones is the automatic method described in Dynamic Addressing Process. There might be times, however, when manual assignment of IP Addresses is desired.

CAUTION: Static addressing is necessary when a DHCP server is unavailable.

Because of the increased opportunities for text entry errors associated with static addressing, Avaya strongly recommends that a DHCP server be installed and static addressing avoided.

Use the following procedure to invoke manual address information programming.

  1. When you select ADDR from the Craft Local Procedure Screen, the Static Addressing Local Procedure screen displays as follows with the prompt “Select address to change.”:

  1. Use the navigation arrows to scroll to and highlight the address you want to change, then press Change to display the change screen for that specific address value.
  2. Depending on the item you selected, choose one of the following:
If you want to
Then
Change any of the IP Address values (Phone, Call Server, Router, Mask, &/or File Server)
Use the dialpad to enter the new IP Address. IP Addresses have three sets of three digits followed by a period. Pressing * following entry of three digits causes a period to be placed in the next position, and the cursor to advance one position to the right.

For example, to enter the IP Address 111.222.333.444, press the 1 on the dialpad three times then press *, press the 2 on the dialpad three times then press *, press the 3 on the dialpad three times then press *, then press the 4 on the dialpad three times. Proceed to the next step.
Change the 802.1Q value
Use the Right navigation arrow to cycle through the text strings corresponding to the NVL2Q values defined as
“Auto” if NVL2Q=0, “On” if NVL2Q=1, and “Off” if NVL2Q= 2 until the text string of the value you want to change to displays. Proceed to the next step.
Change the VLAN ID value
Use the dialpad to enter the new static VLAN ID of from 0 to 4094, inclusive. Proceed to the next step.
Change the VLANTEST value
Use the dialpad to enter the new value of the DHCPOFFER wait period of from 0 to 999, inclusive. Proceed to the next step.
  1. Press Save to store the new setting and redisplay the Craft Local Procedure screen or Cancel to return to the Craft Local Procedure screen without saving the value entered.

Once the new values are stored, the telephone is reset.

If a new boot program is downloaded from the HTTP server after you enter static addressing information, you must reenter your static addressing information.
