This guide will assist you with configuring your Grandstream DP715 DECT Cordless Phone and Base Station with Trixbox Pro. We will assume that the DP715 is in a new in box state (or that you have performed a factory reset) and that you already have your Trixbox Pro up and running, but have not yet setup an extension for the DP715.
The Grandstream DP715 phone is capable of a certain amount of auto-provisioning with Trixbox Pro. Go ahead and unpack your DP715, power it on, and get it connected to an active ethernet connection. We will come back to provision the phone after we configure Trixbox Pro.
First you will need to log in to your Trixbox Pro. Go to http://cp.trixbox.com and enter your username and password.
This will bring you to the Trixbox home page.
If you haven’t already created an extension for the DP715 then click on ‘User/Extensions’ at the top of the page, then select ‘Add User’, and then select “I want to add a new user…”
Go ahead and fill out the new extensions user information.
Since the DP715 receives a limited amount of pre-configuration from Trixbox it will be listed as an available option under the drop down menu of ‘Phones/Devices’. Look for the model in the list, if you have multiple models connected you can verify which one you want by the MAC address.
Once you are done select “Add User and Extension”.
We now need to get some information from Trixbox that we will use to configure the phone. Go to “View Users” and then select the extension you either already had made or you just created.
Once the extension page has loaded you will need to scroll down to the section titled “Extension [number]“. From here you will need to click on ‘SIP Password’, be sure to write it down somewhere as you will need it to program the handset in the Grandstream interface.
Once you have that password saved you are done working on the Trixbox. Now lets get the Grandstream DP715 configured for your extension.
Configuring your Grandstream DP715
The first part of this will require that the handset has charged enough to use it to get the IP address. With the handset turned on press the *(star) key three (3) times and then press the green talk key. You will hear a voice prompt say “Enter a menu option.”. You will need to press zero-two (02) and you will be told what the IP address is for your base unit.
Now that you have the IP address enter that into your URL. For this example my units IP is 192.168.1.74. Once you have entered the URL you will be taken to the Grandstream password page, by default the password is ‘admin’ (without the quotes).
From the main Grandstream page you will need to select ‘Profile 1′. Be sure the ‘Profile Active’ is set to Yes and in ‘Primary SIP Server’ enter your Trixbox url.
**Note: this is not the URL you entered to sign in to Trixbox. If you don’t know what it is log into your Trixbox and go to Users/Extensions and then Phones. On this screen it will tell you your Trixbox address.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page and select ‘Update’ to save the settings (you will be prompted to reboot to apply the settings, don’t do it yet as that just adds time to wait, we will reboot the system once we are completely done with configuring the DP715).
Next select ‘Handsets’ and be sure that Handset 1 is enabled. Both ‘SIP User ID’ and ‘Authentication ID’ is the DP715 MAC address while the ‘Authentication Password’ is the one you saved from the Trixbox configuration just a few steps ago. The ‘Name’ section can be set to whatever you want, the caller ID will be influenced by your Trixbox settings and the name here.
You are all done with the configurations, just scroll down to the bottom of the page and select ‘Update’ and then ‘Reboot’.
Once your DP715 has finished rebooting it will be ready to make and receive calls. If you have any extra DP710’s the you have linked to the DP715 base station (and you have extensions already set in your Trixbox) then you can go back to Handsets and finish configuring those using the same steps.
