When the IP Office is powered on it will look for any attached hardware. This means that any attached hardware should be powered on prior to connecting power to the IP Office. When started up for the first time the IP Office will automatically build extensions and users for any recognized extension port, starting with extension/user 201. The IP Office will number extension from left to right on the IP Office then left to right on any attached modules, starting at Module 1 and working up. A hunt group (number 200) will be created with the first ten users as members. All detected lines are included in Line Group 0 and a short code on 9 is created to provide access to the default routing table. Embedded voicemail is also configured on startup. Every user on the IP Office receives a mailbox. This is also true when Voicemail Pro is enabled.
The system name for the IP Office will be the MAC Address of the LAN1 port. As I previously mentioned the default IP addresses are 192.168.42.1 and 192.168.43.1 for LAN1 and LAN2, with a netmask of 255.255.255.0. A DHCP Server is built into the IP Office that is automatically configured to assign up to 200 IP addresses. The range is 192.168.42.2-201 and 192.168.43.2-201 for LAN1 and LAN2 respectively. If the IP Office detects that there is another DHCP server on the network it will disable the internal DHCP server.
The IP Office also builds a few default usernames and passwords. They are as follows:
IP Office Administration: Administrator / Administrator
IP Office Security Settings: security / securitypwd
Remote Access Dialin: RemoteManager / password
System Password (for upgrades): password (no username)
A number of other defaults are created as well. These include usernames that are used by the system for various functions as well as a few different levels of administration access. You can see the full list of users in the Security Settings. For obvious reasons you should consider changing some of these passwords. Do not change any of the passwords for system-level users (EnhTcpaService, SCN_Admin, IPDECTService, and SMGRB5800Admin). To change these passwords you need to open Manager and click File -> Advanced -> Security Settings. Log in using the Security Settings information. You can change the default passwords and create new users with various permissions from this screen. In the event that you do not have any passwords for your IP Office you can use a physical connection to the RS-232 port on the back of the IP Office control unit. You can connect to the RS-232 port by configuring a terminal to connect at 38,400/8/N/1, Flow Control Off, TTY or VT100. The command type to use is at, followed by the type at-securityresetall. The IP Office will prompt for a complex response after which all passwords will be defaulted.
