480i CT


Recommended Posts

here is info i received from a aastra rep, i have the admin guide and latest firmware, let me know where and i will email it.




SIP Firmware Upgrade


Go to the Aastratelecom.com web site. Navigate to: Support/Download Area/ SIP Telephones/. Find the model phone that you are upgrading. Down at the bottom of the page see "Current Software Release" and download to your PC.


Unzip or extract the firmware to the Pumpkin folder. Check the name of the file (it should be called "phone model.st").


Now go to the web interface of the phone, firmware update page. Put the ip address of the computer that has pumpkin running on it and the filename (51i.st) in the filename field and hit download firmware.


Watch your Pumpkin TFTP window. You should see files transferring and your phone should say 'do not unplug….' Wait for the phone to download the firmware twice, and then it will automatically reboot. This typically takes about 3-5 minutes




CFG files


Aastra phones have two cfg files aastra.cfg and "mac address".cfg. The aastra.cfg goes to all of the phones and the mac.cfg will only go to the phone with that mac address (mac address is a unique number that is assigned to a device ie. a phone or computer). In order to use cfg files you have to have an aastra.cfg file but you do not have to use a mac.cfg.


Authentication Settings (ie. phone number or extension and sip password) would be an example of settings that would only go to one phone so would be in the "mac address".cfg file.

Sip Network Settings (ie. registrar server and proxy server and port settings) would be an example of settings that would have to be in all phones and would be in the aastra.cfg file.


When creating cfg files use a text editor (Wordpad) and save file as aastra.cfg or "mac address".cfg. Keep in mind that Local.cfg (web or telephone applied settings) will always override server.cfg (config server loaded). Also mac.cfg statements will take precedence over the same statements in your aastra.cfg.


Create the cfg file, put it in the TFTP server folder, Go to the Configuration Server Settings page on the web interface of the phone and enter the Download Protocol and the TFTP Server IP information. When the phone is rebooted it will load the file.



Loading directory files into the phone.


You can load directory files just as you would with regular cfg files.


Add the statement below to your aastra.cfg file.


directory 1: companylist.csv


Then create your directory list as a text file (see below) and name it companylist.csv.


Abe, 200

Ben, 400

Chuck, 600

Dan, 800


Put the companylist.csv file in your TFTP server folder and reboot the phone. As the phone reboots and loads the aastra.cfg file it will also load the directory file.

There is more information regarding this in the Administrator Guide.

Few things you can do here -

1. Check if Aastra has any log file that could tell you something about the failure

2. You can do the wireshark trace on the PBX interface to see if you seeing packets from Aastra

3. Login to the PBX and see if Admin->Settings->Access page has blacklisted (blocked) the Aastra IP address.
