Hi.
Newbie here. Just set up IPBX at vultr following tutorial but can't find instructions on how to configure the phones.

Thanks


EDIT - so I figured out the basics. Was getting confused by mentions of endpoint manager and couldn't find it, etc.

Realized just had to go to phones web interface an fill in fields. Found by searching for my phone model number and FreePBX on the google.
For any future ref, this is the link I used: https://wiki.freepbx.org/display/FOP/Aastra

Problem now is phone says "no service". In the phone's web ui I see status 503. Gonna google that up now but any help appreciated.
Also, is there anywhere in the PBX ui I can see logs or monitor connections, etc.?
Thanks again.

Ok, so I figured it out. Two problems.
a) when I configured the 'proxy server' and 'registration server' the instruction I found did not say anything about the port. Port had to be 5060 for both.
b) may be unique to my phone (aastra 6731) but for proxy and server names it will resolve a DNS A record but not a DNS CNAME record. Seems a peculiar quirk but it was definitely a problem. Changed my DNS to an A record and now it resolves fine.

I'm online and I can talk to LENNY!
Now to get GV working....
