snom 710

snom guest config
Take the guesswork out of all of the hundereds of settings options in the phone.

For example: guestconfig.vf.net/snom320/snom320.php and guestconfig.vf.net/snomD345/snomD345.php

Gigaset DECT Bases
Neat units, with broad handset compatability.

Made safer by following this article:

https://teamwork.gigaset.com/gigawiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=336560276

Openreach SSFPs - Misunderstood as Service Specific Face Plate
They're officially Service Specific Front Plates!

MK1 - was the original VDSL iPlate

MK2 - contains an in-built RF filter to handle.

MK3 - contains an improved RF filter to better handle REIN - it has a few extra turns on the coil.

So on a good quality short line an MK2 could go faster, but it would be less effective at handling noise or errors.

Network Discovery
The advanced - ip - scanner . com is pretty decent. On a mobile or tablet fing is suggested.
DNS Broken?
Try 208.69.38.170 to confirm traffic. This may become phased out, in which case try https://146.112.59.2/
snom needs DND changing?
Try http://10.10.10.11/dummy.htm?&dnd_mode=off&settings=save and/or http://10.10.10.11/dummy.htm?&dnd_mode=on&settings=save.
snom remote call release
