Clear Authentication password

I've inherited a Polycom SoundIP 335.  I managed to perform a factory reset on the phone successfully.  However, when I tried to configure to phone to register onto my Elastix server, it fails.  Discovered the "Authentication Password" keep resetting back to the old password (previous onwer).  

 

How can I configure the phone so that the "Authentication Password" will stay (not changed).

Re: Clear Authentication password

Hello K,

welcome back to the Polycom Community.

We will always Asterisk the password even if there is no password so I am unsure what problem you are facing.

 

This is a newer phone than the more than ten year old phone you posted before but the same is applicable.

 

Please utilize the FAQ posts to troubleshoot this issue or open a Support ticket via a Pay per Incident / PPI.


Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.

Re: Clear Authentication password

You're right...I gave up with the old phone and went online and purchased the soundpoint 335.  Since I posted this message earlier I went to the URL - <removed by the moderator as this URL is for Support Customers only> and updated the firmware.  I think I have killed the phone.  After the update, the phone stopped to bootup at all now. It's saying something about the image imcompatible and no application found. I can't get back to the problem I had earlier.

 

Can you help to rollback to the old firmware I had before?

Re: Clear Authentication password

I'm a newbie to VOIP.  I've just started to learn about the technology.  That's said,  have I bricked my Soundpoint IP 335?  Right now, I can't access the phone from my web browrser after I've performed the upgrade on the phone.  

 

I did not install the upgrader before the upgrade. I read the upgrade procedure after the fact.  What can I do to bring the phone back so I can perform a manual provisioning.

Hello Ken

 

that is not a problem but simply read what I have posted already.

 

Option 4 is what you require and the whole community search can be utilized for further questions.

 

If this fails please work with your Polycom reseller for support

Re: Clear Authentication password

I can't locate the option 4 you're referring.  I gave up and bought a branch phone instead.  I'll revisit this phone and the issue later.  Right now, I just needed to bring up a functional VOIP system.

Hello Ken,

hopefully my last reply.

 

  • The 1st FAQ post explains why you getting the message.
  • The 2nd FAQ post explains how you setup your own server and what files you need to download.
  • I had then asked you to follow Option 4

 

OPTION 4:

 

Manually utilizing a provisioning server via the Phone GUI when the Phone is booting up

 

> UC Software 4.0.0 or later

 

  • Polycom Logo appears
  • Press Cancel when "Loading Application" appears
    CancelBootup_01.PNG
  • Select Setup during the countdown
    CancelBootup_02.PNG
  • Enter the => Password <=
  • Select Provisioning Server
  • Modify the Server Type, Server Address, Server User and Server Password

> SIP Software 3.3.5 or older

 

  • Polycom Logo appears
  • Select Setup during the countdown
    CancelBootup_02.PNG
  • Enter the => Password <=
  • Select Provisioning Server
  • Modify the Server Type, Server Address, Server User and Server Password
