Salvete! I have a Polycom IP5000 Soundstation which loads its 3.2.6 sip.ld file from my server's polycom ftp directory - no problem there.
However, I want to upgrade the firmware to 4.0.1b or better. I have read through the documents, which give directions, but not enough for my hard head - I just can't get the new configuration to take.
Here is where I stand: - First, I am using a macaddress configuration - that is, my phones load their settings information from .cfg. - In the ftp directory, I have sip_326.ld and sip_326.ld which is being used now. - There is also sip_401b.ld and sip_401b.cfg which I want to upgrade too. - In the ftp directory (everything is at root), I have also placed the 4.4.0 BootRom files, which look like this:
It seems to me that the IP5000 should, using its 3.2.6 configuration, see the bootrom upgrade files in the polycom directory and just load them. After that, I think I ought to be able to reboot the phone with the 4.0.1 configuration. Now, what step am I missing here?
