FreePBX 18.104.22.168 / Asterisk 16.16.2 / all modules up to date
A few weeks ago I bought a BNIB (brand new in the box) Mitel 5235 IP phone, intending to get it to work as a SIP phone with my FreePBX 15 server, as I know others have done. The phone sat on the shelf until yesterday when I tried, unsuccessfully, to get it to download firmware from my TFTP server. I’m thinking that the firmware on the 5235 is very old, maybe too old.
Aside: Note that I have a Mitel 5330e, and have downloaded the 22.214.171.124 firmware using TFTP, brought up the Web Configuration Tool using the IP phone’s IP address, and the 5330e has registered with FreePBX. So I’m relatively familiar with booting Mitel phones, and configuring DHCP options for Mitel IP phones on my pfSense firewall. Here is ta link to a description of the procedure I used:
On the 5235, when I view version info, here is what I see:
Main Load Version: 00.00.00.00 [Yes, all zeroes]
Boot Load Version: 01.00.00.41
L2Boot Load Version: 01.00.00.41
I’m wondering if anyone has any insight into how I might get the 5235 working, or where I can find firmware older than 126.96.36.199, say 188.8.131.52 or earlier.
