VVX 601 - Can't Login To IP Address Of Phone



I have tried this with 2 Polycom VVX 601 phones.  I connect the phone to the network, get the ip address from the phone's touch display.  Enter the ip address into my web browser and I only see a website from my web host like I typed in a bad domain name.  Also, when I do a traceroute from the VVX 601 to, it works fine.


If I plug a Cisco 303 into the same exact ethernet port, then type the Cisco ip address into a web browser, it works fine.  Aka, I see a login page for the Cisco phone.


What am I missing when trying to setup this VVX 601?

Thanks, that helped.  The condensed solution for anyone finding this in the future is to use:


https:// and then the ip address from the phone.


So it might look like
