Unidata - Setting up a Unidata Device

When you are setting up a Unidata phone for the first time, you must provide IP Telecom with the following details. We will register the phone in our database. When we have confirmed registration, follow the steps to set up the phone.

  • Wifi name (SSID) and Wifi password
  • The user that will be using the phone and the name/number you want to display on the screen of the phone
  • Mac address of the phone

The device might first need to download the latest firmware, this will take a few minutes. When the phone is back you must configure, connect to Wifi and then modify the input IP.

To configure your Unidata phone:

  1. Press the "down" arrow
  2. Press "9" for "Admin Menu"
  3. Default password: 000000 (6 zeros)
  4. Press "3" for "APS Address"
  5. Set "Input IP or DNS" to p.iptel.co/unidata/firmware
  6. Press "Set"
  7. On the phone, go to WLAN, select your Wifi network.
  8. Connect the phone to WiFi by choosing WPA2-PSK-AES and press "Down" to enter the password

The phone downloads and updates the firmware from the server.

Note

If the firmware won't update, it means the device has a newer firmware than on the server - in this case proceed to modify the "Input IP or DNS".

To modify the Input IP or DNS

  1. Press the "down" arrow
  2. Press 9 "Admin Menu"
  3. Default password: 000000 (6 zeros)
  4. Press 3 "APS Address"
  5. Set "PROTOCOL" to "HTTP"
  6. Set "Input IP or DNS" to p.iptel.co/unidata/{customer name}

    Important

    The {customer name} needs to be the same as in the SSH provisioner_unidata account name (case sensitive)

  7. Set "Use BOOTP 66 option" to "No"

  8. Set “Use Provision” to “YES”
  9. Press "Set" (OK) to Save and leave the menu
  10. On the phone go to WLAN, select your Wifi network
  11. Connect the phone to WiFi by choosing WPA2-PSK-AES and press "Down" to enter the password
  12. If already connected, press "OK" to reconnect or reboot the device

Your device should now display a username and is ready to be used.
