Let me start this by saying I am new to FreePBX and VoIP in general.
My company wants me to get FreePBX set up and running as a possible alternative to what we are currently using.
I was able to get FreePBX installed and running, and was able to make inbound and outbound calls on my softphone (x-lite.)
The issue I'm running into is I cannot get FreePBX ( with end point manager ) to configure my polycom ip560 phones.
When I reset the phone I get an error message that says " cannot contact boot server, using previous configuration " and the phone goes back to how it was configured before I tried to mess with it.
I'm sure at this point that it's just user error, but i'm not sure where I have made the error.
I'm hoping someone can at least point me in the right direction here. I'll start with how I have EPM set up.

On my actual Ip560 Phone, and this is most likely where I am doing something wrong.

I really hope someone can help me out here. Thanks in advance
