2. If the Aastra IP phones are in a private network behind a DSL and can reach the Simton IPX through the Simton IPX WAN port, the IP address of IPX WAN port will be used for registration.
3. If the Aastra IP phones are in the Internet or a remote private location, it can reach the Simton IPX using the domain name of the IPX.
To configure Aastra IP phone, you need to use an Internet browser to access the IP phone. You can use “Options” key and select “Phone Status” to find out the current IP address of the phone. The Aastra IP phone default user name and password are admin/22222.
Within the Aastra configuration system, you can select “Advanced Settings” > “Global SIP” and configure the page as in the following diagram.
The IPX address of register server and proxy servers should be set to the IPX IP address that can be reached from the Aastra IP phone. The default port number is 8060. Please note that Basic Codecs settings must be enabled.
