How do I manually configure my phone's IP settings?

If your DHCP server does not assign the PBXtra 's Internal IP Address as the Primary DNS, you may need to manually set the Primary DNS Server on each of your IP Phones.

NOTE: Manually setting the Primary DNS Server for a phone requires that the phone use a static ip address instead of DHCP.  The preferred approach to DNS is to configure your DHCP server to assign the PBXtra 's IP Address as the Primary DNS server automatically.

You will find the instructions for each type of IP Phone that Fonality supports below:
