IP321 Ring tones


IP321 Ring tones

Hello all.

I have IP321 handsets installed, and I'm having a problem changing the ring tone. If you go through the settings and change the ringer the normal way, it says that it is changed, but when you ring the phone (internal and external) you get the default ring again? Any ideas??

Cheers :)

Thanks for that. My software version is


A bit more information. If you manually change the ring tone on the handset a config file appears in C:\TFTP\current


<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
 <OVERRIDES reg.1.ringType="10"/>


But if you ring the phone it still rings with the original tone.
