Polycom ip 331 updating initial configuration
Place the “Polycom Firmware Folder” inside the TFTP-Root Folder. TFTP Server address: 192.168.1.97, Polycom Phone address: 192.168.1.99).Go back to your TFTP Application which should be open on your desktop. This is essential for the phone and the TFTP server to communicate with each other.For engineers looking to carry phones around to different sites for demonstration purposes then selecting a web server on the Internet makes it very easy to update the phones over the Internet, while for supporting updates for a handful of devices on an internal network then utilizing an existing web server is ideal.Either way once the directory is setup then any device can be manually pointed to the directory and the phone will utilize HTTP to download and apply the firmware.You can find tons of programs like this on the internet but the one that we use in our house is Solar Winds.
This process allows the device to be manually pointed to a Polycom hosted web server distribution point on the Internet to download and install new firmware packages from.To create a custom software distribution a software package must first be downloaded, the firmware files extracted, and then a configuration file created and modified.There is still some initial setup required but this is a basic as creating a single XML file and then dropping it an the desired firmware files directly into any web server directory.This only applies to devices which are already running at least version 4.0.0 of the UCS firmware.In previous versions (Polycom SIP software 3.x or earlier) this manual process was not available.
