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: - - [06/Mar/2018:10:19:09 -0600] "GET /voipcfg/96x1Supgrade.txt 
HTTP/1.1" 200 941 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0)" - - [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:

        pool {
                range dynamic-bootp;
                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";
                #option option-242 
                option option-242 

Having already created a /voipcfg directory on the web server, the phone now 
boots from there and reads 46xxsettings.txt.
