Configuration Files for Aastra 480i/480i CT Phones

(originally posted by frisketdog)

Config file parameters are similar to the Aastra 9133i.

The 480i/480i CT has 4 dedicated line keys but supports up to nine lines. The 480i CT adds support for up to 5 cordless handsets.

The phone may be configured using the phone's Options menu, web-client, or through configuration files downloaded via a TFTP server.

For basic configuration, the phone's Options menu or the web-client is recommended. However, the options available from these interfaces are a small subset of what can be set from the configuration files that are downloaded from the TFTP server.

Since the configuration from the phone's Options menu and the web-client are straightforward, I will describe how the 480i phone can be configured using the configuration files.

If the TFTP server location is configured at the DHCP server, and the DHCP option on the phone is turned on (which is by default), the phone will try to get the TFTP server's location and will use this to download the configuration files. If the phone is not able to obtain the TFTP server location or the phone is using a static IP address, the TFTP server address can be configured through the phone's Option menu.

Aastra IP phones search for two configuration files on the TFTP server in order that they may configure themselves: aastra.cfg and <mac>.cfg. The aastra.cfg file configures the server-wide settings (or general settings suitable company wide), while the <mac>.cfg file configures only the individual phone with the MAC address for which the file is named (for example, "00085d0304f4.cfg"). Settings in the "aastra.cfg" file are overridden by settings which also appear in the "<mac>.cfg" file. The following are sample configuration files you may use to configure the 480i/480i CT phone.


#==================================================================
#      File: Sample :"aastra.cfg" file

#  Notes: 
#    The general format used here is similar to configuration files 
#    used by several UNIX-based programs. Any text following a number 
#    sign (#) is considered to be a comment, unless the number sign is 
#    contained within double-quotes ("#") where it is considered to be 
#    a pound. For Boolean fields, 0 = false, 1 = true. 

#  Comments: 
#    This file contains sample configurations for the "aastra.cfg" 
#    file. The settings included here are examples only.You should 
#    change/comment the values to suit your requirements.

#     DHCP Setting
#     ============

dhcp: 1                            # DHCP enabled.

#  DHCP: 
#       0 = false, means DHCP is disabled.
#       1 = true, means DHCP is enabled.

#    Notes: If DHCP is disabled, the following network settings will 
#    have to be configured manually either through the configuration  
#    files, the Options List in the phone, or the Web Client: IP  
#    Address (of the phone), Subnet Mask, Gateway, DNS, and TFTP 
#    Server.

#----------------------------------------------------------------------

#     Network Settings
#     ================

#    Notes: If DHCP is enabled, you do not need to set these network 
#    settings

#subnet mask:                      
#default gateway:                  
#dns1:                             
#dns2:                             
#tftp server:                      

#     Additional Network Settings:
      ===========================

#sip registration time: 300        # Eg. every 300 seconds, a re-register   
                                   # request is sent to the SIP server.
#sip rtp port: 3000                # Eg. RTP packets are sent to port 3000.

sip silence suppression: 2         # "0" = off, "1" = on, "2" = default


#----------------------------------------------------------------------

#     SIP registrar and Proxy Server Settings
#     =======================================

#sip proxy ip:                    # IP of proxy server.
#sip proxy port: 5060             # 5060 is set by default.
#sip registrar ip:                # IP of registrar.
#sip registrar port: 5060         # 5060 is set by default.

# Time in seconds before which the phone automatically
# starts calling the dialed number
sip digit timeout: 6             

#----------------------------------------------------------------------

#     Time Server Settings
#     ====================

#time server disabled: 1          # Time server disabled.
#time server1:                    # Enable time server and enter at
#time server2:                    # least one time server IP address.
#time server3:

#  Time Server Disabled:
#        0 = false, means the time server is not disabled.
#        1 = true, means the time server is disabled.

#    Notes: If the time server is enabled you will need to enter the 
#    IP address of at least one time server. If the time server is 
#    disabled, the time can be set manually in the phone's Options 
#    List under option "2. Time and Date". 

# time zone name: GB-London
# time zone code: GMT
# time zone minutes: 60
# time format: 1 # 0=12 hr, 1=24 hr
# date format: 0 # 5=dd;mm;yy

# Ther above 5 lines are to set the time zone for the UK

#----------------------------------------------------------------------

#     Line Settings
#     =============

#    Lines should be set in the <mac>.cfg file since these settings
#    are unique to each phone. See the sample "<mac>.cfg" file for 
#    for more information. 

#----------------------------------------------------------------------

#     Softkey Settings
#     ================

#    Softkeys can be set either server wide or unique to each phone. 
#    Setting softkeys as line/call appearances should be done in the
#    "<mac>.cfg" file, since these are unique to each phone. 

#    Notes: There are a maximum of 20 softkeys that can be configured 
#    on the 480i phone. These can be set up through either of the 2
#    configuration files, depending on whether this is to be server 
#    wide ("aastra.cfg") or phone specific ("<mac>.cfg"). 
#    Each softkey needs to be numbered from 1 - 18, for example 
#    "softkey12 type: speeddial". Softkeys can be set up as speeddials
#    or as additional call/line appearances and have a type, label 
#    and value associated with it as seen here in the default softkey
#    settings.

#    SOFTKEY TYPES: "line", "speeddial" or "dnd"
#    SOFTKEY LABEL: Alpha numeric name for the softkey. The maximum 
#                   number of characters for this value is 10 for 
#                   speeddials and 9 for lines. 
#                   Firmware Version 1.4: the maximum number of characters has been increased considerably.
#
#    SOFTKEY VALUE: If softkey type is a speeddial, any DTMFs (from 
#                   0 - 9, *, "#") or a comma (,) for 500ms pause and 
#                   'E' for On-hook can be set for the value. If 
#                   softkey type is line, enter value as a number from 
#                   5 up to 9 (1 - 4 always map to L1, L2, L3 and L4 
#                   hard key line/call appearances)

#  Softkey Speed Dials
#  ===================

#     For the default softkey speed dials, please refer to the sample
#     "aastra.cfg" file.

#      File: Sample "<mac>.cfg" file

#  Comments: 
#    This file contains sample configurations for the "<mac>.cfg" 
#    file. Please rename this file with the MAC address (with the 
#    dashes removed) of the specific 480i device that you want to 
#    configure, for example "00085D03059F.cfg".  

#    Settings that have already appeared in "aastra.cfg" will be 
#    overridden by those in this file. 
#-------------------------------------------------------------------

#     Line Settings
#     =============

#     Lines should be set in the <mac>.cfg file since these settings
#     are unique to each phone. 

#     Notes: Setting parameters for lines 1 - 3 configures the 3 
#     line/call appearance hard keys on the 480i. Setting parameters
#     for lines 4 - 9 configures the phone for additional line/call
#     appearances that can be set up as softkeys. 

#     The maximum number of line/call appearances that can be 
#     configured on the 9133i is 8 or 9, depending on how the lines 
#     have been configured. 

#     If all line/call appearances have been set up for the same 
#     number, a total of 9 lines can be configured. If all line/call 
#     appearances have been set up between two different numbers, a 
#     total of 8 lines can be configured. This means that when all 
#     line/call appearances are in use, 1 is connected while the rest 
#     are held. No further outgoing or incoming calls can be made until 
#     one of the line/call appearances becomes available. 


#  Explanation of Settings with Line 1 as Example
#  ==============================================

#sip line1 auth name:      # SIP Registrar request authorization name.
#sip line1 password:        # SIP Registrar request passcode.

#     are unique to each phone. 

#     Notes: Setting parameters for lines 1 - 3 configures the 3 
#     line/call appearance hard keys on the 480i. Setting parameters
#     for lines 4 - 9 configures the phone for additional line/call
#     appearances that can be set up as softkeys. 

#     The maximum number of line/call appearances that can be 
#     configured on the 9133i is 8 or 9, depending on how the lines 
#     have been configured. 

#     If all line/call appearances have been set up for the same 
#     number, a total of 9 lines can be configured. If all line/call 
#     appearances have been set up between two different numbers, a 
#     total of 8 lines can be configured. This means that when all 
#     line/call appearances are in use, 1 is connected while the rest 
#     are held. No further outgoing or incoming calls can be made until 
#     one of the line/call appearances becomes available. 


#  Explanation of Settings with Line 1 as Example
