How to integrate Grandstream IP Phones into Toku Connect

A step-by-step guide on how to get your Grandstream phones working with Toku Connect

Step 1: Download Firmware & Copy to Provisioning Directory

These phones have been tested with Toku Connect with the following firmware only:

  • Grandstream GXP-1160 - Firmware 1.0.8.6
  • Grandstream GXP-1165 - Firmware 1.0.8.6
  • Grandstream GXP-1400 - Firmware 1.0.8.6
  • Grandstream GXP-1405 - Firmware 1.0.8.6
  • Grandstream GXP-1450 - Firmware 1.0.8.6
  • Grandstream GXP-2100 - Firmware 1.0.8.6
  • Grandstream GXP-2110 - Firmware 1.0.8.6
  • Grandstream GXP-2120 - Firmware 1.0.8.6
  • Grandstream GXP-2124 - Firmware 1.0.8.6

Therefore you need to ensure that the phones are running this firmware. To do this:

  1. Download the Grandstream GXP support files
  2. Find the provisioning folder of your 3CX Install – by default it is something like:

    C:\ProgramData\3CX\Instance1\Data\Http\Interface\provisioning\XXXXXX.
    Where XXXXXX is the randomly generated folder name of 8 to 12 characters.
  3. Place the firmwares into this folder.

Step 2: Factory Reset your Phone

  1. Press “Menu.”
  2. Press “Config” or System”

        

  1. Navigate down to “Factory Reset” option and press “Menu” or “OK” depending on the model.

        

  1. Selecting and confirming “OK” will restart your phone, which will after be successfully reset.

Step 3: Configure the phone in Toku Connect

In case your Toku Connect Phone System does not run on SIP port 5060, or the phone is not located within the same local LAN subnet, refer to step 3.1.

  1. Connect the phone to the network. It will send a PnP request to Toku Connect.
  2. Now go to the Toku Connect Management Console -> Phones node -> the phone should be listed.

 

 

  1. Single click on the BOLD entry and choose “Assign Ext” or “Add Ext” depending on whether you want to assign the phone to an existing extension or create a new one.
  2. All major provisioning settings are pre-populated. If your Toku Connect has multiple network cards, select to which network this IP Phone is connected. Optional settings include the base “Time Zone”.

 

 

  1. Finish the extension setup configuration.
  2. Upon the “OK” of the extension configuration the phone will be auto provisioned!
