General info

For implementing auto-provisioning of the VoIP phones it must first be ensured that the device receives the address (URL) of the server responsible for provisioning. As the provisioning server location cannot be anticipated in the case of a private PBX it may be located within the phone’s local network, in the case of a hosted PBX it may be located somewhere in the Internet the phones use a Gigaset server (profile.gigaset.net/device) by default which must be changed according to the provisioner’s requirements.

The following methods are provided for the provisioning server URL update, depending on the prevailing network infrastructure:

After/during start-up, the device will first try to get provisioning server URL via:

DHCP option 66

The phone requests the provisioning server address via a DHCP request with option 66 (dhcp_url). This method is predominantly used by stand-alone provisioning servers within the same LAN.

DHCP option 114

The phone requests the provisioning server address via a DHCP request with option 114 (dhcp_url). This method is predominantly used by stand-alone provisioning servers within the same LAN.

Then the device will (always) send:

SIP multicast message

The phone requests the provisioning server address from a local network instance via SIP multicast. This method is predominantly used by local PBX systems.

Info

SIP multicast response will overwrite the DHCP option 114

Then when both first options are not used, the device will use the:

Gigaset redirecton service

The provisioner can use either the Gigaset provider/provisioner portal to enter the provisioning server URL for the phones to be managed or use the XML-RPC interface.

If all above are not used, the user can also configure the provisioning URL manual:

Manually using the device’s Web UI

You can enter the URL manually in the web-interface of the device.

In every device, under Firmware there is a Data server field. This is the link to your provisioning server, you can change this manually.Will be overwritten by DHCP option or other method if provided.
