How to configure your phone and how to access sample XML applications is the scope of this article. For exploring the XML capabilities of the optiPoint application module you do not necessarily set up your own webserver. Just try out one of the application samples, residing on one of our public internet servers.
Download XML enabled phone SW
Using XML on your Siemens IP-phone requires a CorNet-IP SW starting with V5.1.34. The CorNet-IP provides encryption capabilities. Hence its distribution must follow legal requirements which do not allow unrestricted SW distribution via the Internet. The firmware is only provided by Siemens technicians or by official Siemens Partners. Customers with self-care contracts will have access to SW within the SEBA Web portal.
Another option is to register as "Open Developer" at the Technology Partner Website to get XML-enabled phone-SW.
Configure applications using web-based management
- Obtain the IP-address of your optiPoint 410/420.
- Start your web browser and access phone's web-based management by entering
https://###.###.###.###(IP-address of your phone).
- Follow the link: Administration > Applications > XML Applications (see screen below).
- Default admin passsord: 123456.
- Select New program to configure a new application.
- Set the appropriate parameters in the New Program form.
For settings please refer to XML developers guide.
