Default Polycom 601 Programmatically

Recommended Posts


I am trying to use a Configuration Server (Filezilla FTP) to default Polycom 601 telephones.

Lately, I am getting 10 to 20 Soundpoint 601 return/trade-in phones a day.

So, rather that using the keypad or web browser method, I would like to automate the process without using the MAC Address of the phone.

I can work with Node.js.

Idealy, I would like to have found something equal to a "Format File System" that could be done programmatically.

After much searching the Web, nothing was found.

Here is one method that I thought would work, but it looks like it isn't.

Among the other basic settings in the 000000000000.cfg file I have the following line:

<APPLICATION_SPIP601 APP_FILE_PATH_SPIP601="sip_318.ld" CONFIG_FILES_SPIP601="phone1_318.cfg, device1.cfg, 000000000000-phone.cfg, sip_318.cfg"/>

I used Wireshark and verified that the 000000000000-phone.cfg file was requested by the phone and delivered the contents by Filezilla.

The only contents of the 000000000000-phone.cfg, is

 <?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>

I found that contents as a way to clear the overrides but it did not work.

Is anyone aware of a basic method to defualt the phones via the 000000000000.cfg route?

Is this a SPIP601 (support ended 03/31/2013)? There might be a reason why those phones were so cheap. You might want to purchase a robot punching those things into the keyboard!
