I’m trying to configure two Mitel IP phones for use in our school’s press box/booth. I already have FreePBX up and running in the booth, and I’ve gone through the UI and configured a few things. However, my difficulty comes when I try to connect the phones. I know that Mitel isn’t necessarily the best brand to use with FreePBX, but we had some extras sitting in a closet, and I wanted to put them to use.
I’ve gotten as far as accessing the Mitel IP Phone Configuration tool through my web browser by typing in the phone’s IP address. However, I’m stuck there. The phone gives a dial tone and some preset line buttons, but once I hit “Dial”, nothing happens, and I can’t dial in to the phone either. Here are my questions:
- How can I find the IP address of my FreePBX TFTP server?
- How do I use the EndPoint Manager to configure the phone (which I already paid $150 for an upgraded version of ECM…)?
I would appreciate any help possible as soon as possible. Our spring sports season starts very soon, and I want to make sure that the system is ready to go before then!
