IP Office Initial Startup

When powering up an IP Office for the first time a number of things are configured automatically. It is important to remember to power up all expansion cabinets first as the IP Office will reach out to all connected modules to identify them. Without power these devices can't be identified and the IP Office will not configure them.

The IP Office will automatically build extensions and users for each extension port. This does not require the phones to be connected, simply that the port is installed and has power. The numbering starts at 201 and goes up sequentially, going from left to right across each port on the main unit and then sequentially up through the expansion modules. A default hunt group is created called MAIN with the number 200. The first ten users are added to this hunt group. By default all voice calls are directed to this hunt group. Data calls are routed to the RAS Access DialIn.

All lines are assigned to Line Group 0 by default. A Short code of 9 is created to provide access to this line group.

Embedded voicemail is configured by default. Every user will be assigned a mailbox and they will be active by default.

The IP Office will configure IP Networking. LAN 1 will have the IP Address of and LAN 2 will be Both networks will have the Subnet Mask of and will have the DHCP server configured with a 200 address range. When connecting to the network the IP Office will check to see if there is another DHCP server on the network. If another DHCP server is active the IP Office will disable the DHCP server for that interface.

The IP Office System Name is configured using the MAC address of the IP Office control unit.
