Requirements

Identifying Phone Model

To start and successfully complete the registration of the Fanvil phone, users need to know which phone model to set up.

On the back of each Fanvil phone, there is model information that you should check. Although various phone models can have exactly the same requirements and installation procedures, they can also have significantly different requirements and installation procedures, so that is why it is important to know the model you own which results in you setting up the device successfully.

Phone Firmware

  • Make sure that the phone is loaded with an appropriate firmware version, 2.4.3.
  • To find out the firmware version of the Fanvil phone model, open a new browser window and enter the phone's IP address in order to access the phone's web administration interface login screen. Example: http://192.168.1.22.
  • Log in to the phone's web administration interface with a username and password. Please note that factory default login details are as follows: username is admin and password is admin.

DHCP Server

Fully configured and operational DHCP server.

PBXware Version

PBXware version 5.3.9

In order to find out the PBXware version:

  • Log in to PBXware
  • Navigate to Settings: About.

On the top of About page, you may see a code similar to this one PBXware Edition: Multi-Tenant Release: 5.3.9.0 (41a4f0e6) Running: 13.23.1-gc-2e09fa3d, Proxy v5.3.9 (231c5f3), API: 5.3, libmemcached version: 1.0.18, where Release denotes the current version of your PBXware.

Installation

This section describes how to install and connect the phone to the electrical power and data network as well as how to apply factory settings.

The following topics are covered:

  • Power Adapter
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE)
  • Factory Settings

Power Adapter

Connect the Network and Power

  • Connect the DC plug on the power adapter to the DC port on the phone and connect the other end of the power adapter into an electrical power outlet.
  • Connect the Ethernet cable between the Internet port on the phone and the network port on a router or switch to access LAN.

NOTE: If you are using Power over Ethernet (PoE), you don't need to connect the AC adapter. Make sure that the Ethernet cable and router or switch is Power over Ethernet (PoE) compliant.

Power over Ethernet (PoE)

Connect the Network (only)

Using a regular Ethernet cable, your phone can be powered from a Power over Ethernet (PoE) compliant router or switch.

  • Connect the Ethernet cable between the Internet port on the phone and an available port on the in-line power router or switch.

NOTE: If you are using Power over Ethernet (PoE), you don't need to connect the AC adapter. Make sure that the Ethernet cable and router or switch is Power over Ethernet (PoE) compliant.

Find the Phone's IP Address

  • Press the Down navigation key

The IP address will be shown on top of the display.

Reset to factory settings

This step is not required for brand new out-of-the-box phones, however, if the phone has been already used then it is a must.

  • Open a new browser window and enter the phone's IP address in order to access the phone's web administration interface login screen. Example: http://192.168.1.22.
  • Log in to the phone's web administration interface with the username and password. Please note that factory default login details are as follows: username is admin and password is admin.
  • Click the Configurations tab.
  • Click the Reset button in order to reset the phone to factory settings. The phone will reset to the factory settings and reboot.
