How to set up a Panasonic KX-HDV 100 to work with Asterisk
The Panasonic HDV 100 corded telephone has a traditional setup process for this manufacturer.
Let's analyze it in more detail.
1. We take it out of the box, plug it into an outlet and into a local network
To set up the phones, it is enough to get out of the box only the phone itself (the handset is optional) and its power supply.
Also, the phone must be connected to the local network, the LAN port is on the back.
2. Turn on the built-in WEB interface
It is more convenient to configure the Panasonic KX-HDV 100 phone through the WEB interface, which is disabled by default in the SIP phones of this manufacturer.
The web interface is enabled via the menu on the phone panel:
Menu -> Basic Settings -> Other Option -> Embedded Web -> On
Now the built-in web interface is enabled and we can access its settings through the browser. For this we need to know the IP address.
Out of the box, the phone is configured to receive an IP address via DHCP and in most cases this is more correct and more convenient than setting a static IP for the phone.
3. Find the IP address
Чтобы узнать какой IP-адрес выдан телефону нужно зайти в меню:
To find out what IP address is issued to the phone, you need to go to the menu:
Menu -> System Settings -> Status -> IPv4 Settings -> IP Address
4. Set up the login, password and address of the Asterisk server via the WEB interface
We enter the IP address of the phone into the browser on the computer (in our example, the phone address is 192.168.0.85).
If you see the error "Unable to access the site. The timeout for a response from the site 192.168.0.85 has been exceeded", then it is most likely the timeout of the WEB-interface has expired and you need to turn it on again (Menu -> Basic Settings -> Other Option -> Embedded Web -> On).
If everything is okay, the login and password for access to the web interface will be requested.
The default login and password from the web interface for the Panasonic KX-HDV 100 SIP phone are:
Taking into account that the web interface turns itself off, there is almost no point in changing the password for most organizations, everything is already safe.
Next, go to the VoIP => SIP Settings -> Line 1 tab and in the single line settings set the parameters of the SIP account for communicating with the Asterisk server.
In the Phone Number and Authentication ID parameters, specify the internal phone number (for example, 701), which must be configured for this telephone.
In the Authentication Password parameter, specify the password for the SIP account.
In the Registrar Server Address, Proxy Server Address, Presence Server Address, Outbound Proxy Server Address parameters, specify the Asterisk server address (for example, 192.168.1.251).
If the phones will be in the same local network, then we indicate the internal address of the Asterisk server.
* If the phones are located at remote sites (behind NAT), then we indicate the external address of the Asterisk server (no other settings from the side of the Panasonic KX-HDV 100 are required when working behind NAT).
Click ‘Save’ button.
5. Checking the connection with Asterisk
To check if the phone is registered on the Asterisk server, go to the Status -> VoIP Status tab. If registration is successful, the VoIP Status column will indicate Registered.
If the server, username or password are specified incorrectly, then the status will be indicated by Registering.
You can also check it externally on the telephone itself. The main screen of a successfully registered Panasonic KX-HDV 100 looks like this:
