[FAQ] IPv6 Support for Polycom Phones

 

IPv6 Support

 

IPv6 support was added to the Polycom VVX phone range via Software Version UC Software 5.5.0

 

NOTE: Brackets " [ " and " ] " must be used to utilize the IPv6 Address

Enable IPv6 via the Phone GUI:

 

  • Press Menu => Settings => Advanced => Administration Settings => Network Configuration

  • Ethernet Menu

  • IP Mode

  • A mix between IPv6 and IPv4 can be utilized

When the phone is in Dual IPv6 / IPv4 or just in IPv6 mode it sends DCHPv6 message(s) using a ff02::1:2 IPv6 multicast address:

XMT:  | X-- Request renew in  +3600
XMT:  | X-- Request rebind in +5400
XMT: Solicit on eth0, interval 2060ms.

Usually a IPv6 enabled DHCP server(s) would then respond

RCV:  X-- IA_NA 7f:02:01:2b
