Ok, to review, I'm trying to get Avaya 9608G to come up in a pure Asterisk
environment-- no Avaya SBC or gateway or any other Avaya gear in sight.
I have the phone working to the point where it boots up properly, then displays
a Username and Password prompt, and says its extension is 123 and the time is
4:57p, which is wrong.
But please don't tell me the only way to program up each phone is via the craft
Every other phone I've ever used requires a configuration file, which has the
MAC address of the phone as its name. The Avaya phones must have some other
method. Unless I have to embed the mac address and particulars for all the
phones into the 46xxsettings.txt file??
How do I get the phone number and authentication into the phone if it isn't
looking for (for example) 50CD22B47C00.cfg or the like?? These are all the
files it attempt to read, from /var/log/httpd/access.log:
10.1.138.245 - - [06/Mar/2018:10:19:09 -0600] "GET /voipcfg/96x1Supgrade.txt
HTTP/1.1" 200 941 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0)"
10.1.138.245 - - [06/Mar/2018:10:19:09 -0600] "GET /voipcfg/46xxsettings.txt
HTTP/1.1" 200 421835 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0)"
By the way, I don't know if I shared this already, but here's my DHCP settings
on my network that allowed it to find my asterisk server.
First, outside of any defined scope, declare option 242. This is about line 13
for me, YMMV
option option-242 code 242 = string;
Next, I defined a tiny little scope for Avaya phones:
range dynamic-bootp 10.194.138.241 10.194.138.254;
deny members of "aastra";
deny members of "polycom-phones";
deny members of "cyberdata-paging";
deny members of "digium-phones";
deny members of "cisco-spa-phones";
allow members of "avaya-phones";
deny members of "sophos";
Having already created a /voipcfg directory on the web server, the phone now
boots from there and reads 46xxsettings.txt.
