Polycom 501 XML configuration file Example

This file is named by the MAC address of your Polycom SoundPoint IP SIP phone followed by, ‘-phone.cfg’.  In your FTP folder you would have a file for each phone – I have a single phone.  It’s MAC is ‘0004F202734B’; so my phones configuration file would be named, ‘0004f202734b-phone.cfg’.  I believe there are other conventions for naming this file as well.

The example below was used to connect my phone with a VoiceIP Solutions Asterisk PBX.  This example shows just a fraction of the many possible features in this line.  For my purposes, I defined the Asterisk server IP address, and it’s SIP credentials.  I also added the NTP server.  The ‘mwi’ tag refers to ‘message waiting information’, here I set the mailbox(s) I’m subscribing to and the extension to check voicemail.   My Asterisk voicemail menu is extension ‘299’.
