A [[NetBoot]] server installed on a PC can be used to copy ([[SIP]] or [[HFA]]) software to a telephone in the [[optiPoint]] 410/420 family.
The Netboot server is generally required for a download if:
* The firmware (also netboot) of the telephone is no longer up to date,
* The telephone no longer boots and therefore is no longer accessible via the Web interface or
* The application software is to be updated but the telephone is not accessible via the usual user interfaces.
The following can be transferred:
* The current or replacement application software with the extension <code>.fli</code> (e.g. <code>410adv_SIP_6_0_55.fli</code>) and
* A new NetBoot version of the telephone firmware if applicable (e.g. <code>netboot201.fli</code> for SIP or <code>netboot308.fli</code> for HFA).
It is possible to overwrite both SIP software with HFA software and HFA software with SIP software.
== Prerequisite ==
You need modules with at least the hardware versions listed under [[SIP V6.0 optiPoint compatibility]] in order to update telephones in the optiPoint 410/420 family for use under SIP V6.0. HFA updates (firmware and application) can be performed on all model versions of the optiPoint 410/420 family.
You need the following to complete the download:
* A PC with a [[LAN]] connection,
* The relevant telephone from the optiPoint 410/420 family,
* A [[TFTP]] server (e.g. the 3CDaemon from [ 3Com]),
* The [[NetBoot]] server program for the PC (you will find the program on the [ SEBA] Web portal under the relevant heading - login required) and
* The data for installation (see above).
== Preparation ==
* Install the NetBoot and the [[TFTP]] server on the PC, if this has not already been done.
* Fetch the files to be transferred or have them at the ready (you will find the data on the [ SEBA] Web portal under the relevant heading - login required).
== Configuring the [[TFTP]] server ==
Start the TFTP server. Click '''Configure TFTP Server''', select the '''TFTP Configuration''' tab and under '''Upload/Download directory''' specify the directory in which the files for installation are stored.

== Configuring the Netboot server==
Start the NetBoot server. You will see the following window:
[[Image:NetBoot-start.gif|thumb|left|Main window of the NetBoot server|300px]]<br clear="left">
=== Adding an entry ===
Click '''Add Entry''' in the main window in the '''Database''' menu. The following dialog opens:
[[Image:NetBoot-addentr.gif|thumb|left|Telephone properties|300px]]<br clear="left">
Provide the following information:
* '''Alias''': Specify a freely definable alias name for this entry, for example <code>optiPoint 410 economy plus S</code>.
* '''MAC Address''' > '''Single Address''': Enter the MAC address of the telephone.<br>The MAC address is imprinted on the underside of the optiPoint telephone as '''Ser.No.''':[[Image:op-macaddr.jpg|thumb|left|optiPoint MAC address]]<br clear="left">
* Tick '''Active'''.
* '''IP Address''' > '''Fixed Address''': Enter the IP address the telephone should have after being started in Netboot mode.
* '''Boot File''': Specify the file that is to be loaded. This can either be an application or a new NetBoot version, for example: <code>410adv_SIP_6_0_58.fli</code> or <code>netboot201.fli</code>.
Click '''OK''' to apply the changes.
=== Defining general properties ===
Click the '''Properties''' option in the main window in the '''Database''' menu. The following dialog opens:
[[Image:NetBoot-propgeneral.gif|thumb|left|Network mask properties|300px]]<br clear="left">
* '''Network Mask''': Specify the subnet mask valid in your [[LAN]].
Click '''Firmware Update'''. The following dialog opens:
[[Image:NetBoot-propupdate.gif|thumb|left|Server IP and path properties|300px]]<br clear="left">
* '''TFTP Server IP Address''': Specify the IP address of the TFTP server.
* '''Boot Image Search Path''': Specify a path for the file if applicable, starting from the server root.
Click '''OK''' to apply the changes.
All preparations are now complete. You can now perform the update.
== Executing the application or NetBoot update ==
Make sure that the [[TFTP]] server and the [[NetBoot]] server are started on the PC.
If power is supplied to the telephone via a power supply unit:
* Connect the phone to the LAN.
* Hold down the [[Image:opk-3.png]] key on the telephone and connect the power supply for the telephone.
If power is supplied to the telephone via LAN ([[PoE]]):
* Hold down the [[Image:opk-3.png]] key on the telephone and connect the telephone to the LAN.
The telephone searches for the NetBoot server, loads the update file from the [[TFTP]] server and then boots with the new application or firmware (NetBoot software).
