The objective of this article is to provide an easy step-by-step guide to get your Snom phone configured and ready to use on the Auerswald phone system.

If the phone has been in use before, please reset the phone to factory settings so that changes already made may not impair correct functionality.

Step 1: To add your snom phone to the Auerswald PBX

  • After unpacking and installing it, connect it to your network.



Step 5: Configure function keys in the Snom web interface (WUI)


Enter Snom Webinterface
  • If you want to configure features that your PBX does not support, you need to set them up via the web user interface (WUI) of your snom phone. To access the phone, type the IP address of your phone into your internet browser (e.g. http://192.168.1.100). To find out the IP address of your phone press the Configuration key (gear wheel symbol) → "Information" → "System information".

To configure additional function keys, click on "Function keys" in Snom WUI and then in the area, Line keys.


Line keys in this case mean all assignable function keys.

Line Keys


The Line key button is self-explanatory and allows to create a new call/line from the phone. It also blinks on inbound calls. There used to be two line key buttons enforced by the provisioning template for all supported phones. Now it is no longer mandatory, you can have none or as many as you wish.

Note: It is advised to have at least 2 BLF keys set as Line keys to make attendant transfers easy for the device user.


BLF

The Busy Lamp Field (BLF) has three functions: when pressed it dials someone’s extension and can also be used to ease transfers, color and flashing status changes according to the supervised extension (idle, ringing or busy) thus providing call information, and when the extension is ringing you can pickup the call.  To be able to pick up someone’s call see Managing Call Pick-Up Permissions for more information.


Speed Dial

Speed dials are used to dial extension numbers only, no presence information will be displayed on the light indicator.


Custom Speed Dial


Custom Speed dials are used to dial any external number or dial code. When adding a Custom Speed Dial, the user must specify the number, and a First Name and Last Name that will be used in the label is displayed on screens. No light indicator will be used.


Profile Status


Profile Status BLFs allows to change the extension’s status to the one specified: Available, Away, Do Not Disturb, Lunch, or Business Trip. No light indicator will be used.


Queue Status


The Queue Status BLF allows to change the extension’s global queue  Logged In status to the one specified, either Logged In or Logged Out. No light indicator will be used
