This hard phone is another ATA (analog telephone adaptor). It enables you to connect your POTS (plain old telephone system) phones to the Internet. Think of it as a phone jack for VoIP. It has one ethernet port and two RJ11 phone jacks. This is one of the most feature rich and easy to use ATA that we have tested. Out of the box, it is configured for DHCP. This means that it gets its IP address from your DHCP server automatically. Full documentation can be found at Sipura's site.
NOTE: We have seen instances where installing the SPA2000 behind a firewall which blocks ICMP packets causes problems with registration. Try turning off any ICMP blocking on your firewall.
You must first determine what IP address it received. To do this, you need to pick up the phone attached to the Line 1 jack and dial:
**** (four asterisks)
then dial: 110 #
and you will be told the IP address of your device (e.g. 192.168.0.100)
Go to any browser equipped computer on your network and enter the address: http://<IP ADDRESS>/
(where <IP ADDRESS> is replaced by the address that was given to you in STEP 1.
Click on the "Admin Login" button near the top right side of the screen, then click on the "Line 1" tab.
You need to modify only a few parameters from the factory default. They are listed here:
Enter your Full name, this will show up as part of your callerid.
Enter the phone number you chose when you signed up for VarPhonex service.
Enter the password that you chose when you signed up for VarPhonex service.
Change the “Preferred Codec” to G729a. Also change the “Use Pref Codec Only” to No. You can do this for both Line 1 and Line 2 (i.e. if you are going to use Line 2).
Click on the "Submit All Changes" button at the bottom of the form.
