How can I monitor the phones IP traffic?

Best way, just configure the PC-port of your OpenStage phone as a mirror of the first one and trace phones IP traffic with a network tracer running on the PC connected to the phones PC-port.

What is a phone-trace?

It is a capture of messages and activity states of the phone.

How can I get a phone-trace?

Traces section in WBM
The tracing is enabled via the Web interface, actions are then performed on the phone, during which the trace information is captured. When the desired actions have been performed, the captured trace information can be downloaded and viewed.
For enabling tracing just enter the WBM, chosse Administrator Pages and select Diagnostics. There you can enter the Fault trace configuration or use an EasyTrace Profil.
When you are not sure which profil to choose, enter the Fault trace configuration, there you can set traces in detail.
The file size should be set to 6290000 bytes. When the file size is reached, the phone save the trace file as old trace file and begins a new one. If the new one reaches the maximum file size, the old trace file will be replaced.
You should only activate a few traces and use the function "Automatic clear before start" (old files will be deleted)

Error codes

When do I see the error codes?

Whenever a phone is unable to register it brings up a message (No telephony possible) together with an error code. The error code helps you to identify where the problem is.

List of error codes

Codecs

What codecs are supported with OpenStage?

- G.711 (A-Law and u-Law)
- G.729AB (OpenStage can decode G.729 and G.729A but encodes only with G.729A)
- G.722 wideband codec

LDAP

Accessing to (corporate) directories via LDAP is available for all OpenStage HFA Phones, as well for OpenScape DeskPhone IP 35G/55G. (Update for HFA V3)

What is the purpose of a LDAP template?

A LDAP template has to be downloaded to the phone via local phone menu or WBM, because it contains necessary information about the search attributes and the location of all user data inside the directory.

Where do I get the template from?

It is a plain txt file and must fit your directory environment. The configuration for a Microsoft Active Directory would look like this:
OpenStage LDAP TEMPLATE (v.1)
SEARCHBASE="CN=Users,DC=microsoft,DC=com"
ATTRIB01="sn"
ATTRIB02="givenName"
ATTRIB03="telephoneNumber"
ATTRIB04="otherTelephone"
ATTRIB05="mobile"
ATTRIB06="homePhone"
ATTRIB07="company"
ATTRIB08="department"
ATTRIB09="l"
ATTRIB10="title"
ATTRIB11="mail"
EOF
If your are not using a Microsoft AD, you have to adjust the template:
OpenStage LDAP TEMPLATE (v.1)
SEARCHBASE="CN=Users,DC=yourdomain,DC=toplevel"
ATTRIB01="Last Name"
ATTRIB02="First Name"
ATTRIB03="Business phone numer 1"
ATTRIB04="Business phone numer 2"
ATTRIB05="Mobile phone number"
ATTRIB06="Home phone number"
ATTRIB07="Company"
ATTRIB08="Address 1"
ATTRIB09="Address 2"
ATTRIB10="Job function"
ATTRIB11="E-Mail address"
EOF

Configuration at the phone.

Besides the template, add the following information in the admin menu of the OpenStage SIP phone: Admin --> Local functions --> Directory Settings
  • LDAP server address
  • LDAP server port
  • LDAP authentication (if Simple, add authentication information below)

Restrictions

Up to now, the address is saved in one single field, which makes it difficult to search for a complete address. It is up to the administrator to which subject of the Directory the address fields are matched with.

Web-based-Management (WBM)

With the WBM are changes in settings possible, which can also be performed in the phone-menu, but you have the adventage that you needn't be in front of the phone.
Trace-configuration is only possible in WBM.

How many pictures can be downloaded?

This depends on the memory usage for other user data (eg. phonebook entries, ringer tones). The total memory available is limited to 8 MB.

Local phonebook

National prefix digit: 0
Local national code: 2302
Min. local number length: 5
Local enterprise node: 98038
