Opening the UIP1868P's Configuration Utility
Your UIP1868P VoIP phone provides a browser-based configuration utility; you can
configure the phone using the same web browser you use to surf the Internet. To
open your phone's configuration utility, follow these instructions:
1. Connect a computer with a web browser directly to the LAN port of your
UIP1868P. (You may be able to connect to the UIP1868P through a router or
wireless access point, but if you have any difficulty connecting, try connecting
directly to UIP1868P’s LAN Ethernet port.)
2. Be sure that this computer is configured to dynamically get an IP address (e.g.,
has the DHCP client enabled).
3. Type the IP address of your UIP1868P’s into the address bar of your web
browser. The default IP address of your UIP1868P is 192.168.15.1.
#
Note: If you change the LAN IP address of your phone, be sure to make note of it.
4. You should now see the your UIP1868P’s System Information Screen:
#
If you have any trouble opening the utility, first check the connection between your
computer and the UIP1868P. Then, reboot your computer while it is connected to
the UIP1868P.

Connecting to Your Broadband Modem
Setting up with DHCP
The UIP1868P is configured for use with Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
(DHCP) by default. If your broadband connection uses DHCP, then you simply have
to connect your phone's WAN port to your broadband modem and then connect the
power on the phone. (See the Quick Reference Guide or the Owner's Manual for
detailed connection diagrams.)
If you have disabled the DHCP client (for example, it you have used your phone in a
network requiring either PPPoE or a static IP address) and need to re-enable it,
follow the steps below.
1. Open the configuration utility.
2. In the menu bar down the left side of the screen, select WAN.
3. In the top menu bar, select WAN Settings. This will open the Wan Configuration
screen.

UIP1868P Administrator's Guide and Software Reference
Setting up with PPPoE
Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) is often used by DSL broadband
providers to connect and authenticate users on their networks. The service provider
will give you a user name and password, and usually some additional software you
need to run in order to go online. The UIP1868P can take the place of the additional
PPPoE software, allowing you to establish and maintain your broadband connection
without running any extra programs on your computer.
Follow the steps below to configure the UIP1868P to use a PPPoE-based
connection.
1. Open the configuration utility.
2. In the menu bar down the left side of the screen, select WAN.
3. In the menu bar on the top of the screen, select PPPoE. This opens the WAN
PPPoE Configuration screen.
4. Under ENABLE PPPOE, click the drop-down arrow and select YES.
5. Under Authentication, enter the USERNAME and PASSWORD that were provided by
your ISP. Username and password are often case-sensitive, so be sure enter
capital and small letters correctly.
6. Under Settings, select the radio button labeled KEEPALIVE. This configures the
phone to maintain the PPPoE connection even when your computer is idle or
turned off.

UIP1868P Administrator's Guide and Software Reference
#
If you disable the KEEPALIVE function, your phone may not receive all incoming
calls that occur when your computer is idle.
7. When the utility displays a window telling you it must reboot the phone, make sure
your broadband modem is connected to your phone's WAN port, then click OK.
When the phone finishes rebooting, it will ask your broadband modem to assign
an IP address.

UIP1868P Administrator's Guide and Software Reference
Connecting Local Computers
Connecting a single computer
If you want to connect a single computer to the Internet through your UIP1868P, use
a standard CAT5 Ethernet cable to connect the UIP1868P's LAN port to your
computer's Ethernet port. You may have to reboot your computer after you connect it
to the phone, but no other configuration should be necessary.
Connecting a local network
If you have more than one device you want to connect to the Internet, then you will
need to use an intermediary device such as a switch, a router, or a wireless access
point. We strongly recommend that you connect your UIP1868P directly to your
broadband modem and connect your switch, router, or access point to the LAN port
of your phone. The UIP1868P performs essential Quality of Service (QoS) function
that allow for superior voice quality; placing any other device between the UIP1868P
and your broadband modem, the traffic on your local area network may reduce the
quality of your VoIP phone calls.
Supporting a host server on the local network (port forwarding)
If you plan to set up a computer on your local network to host files or programs
accessible to the Internet, you will need to configure your UIP1868P to forward the
data associated with the specific type of service you want to support (such as a web
server, an FTP server, game server, etc.) to the host server. Internet protocol
separates data traffic for different services into port ranges. To configure the
UIP1868P to forward any data that comes in on the port range of the service you
want to support, follow the steps below.
1. Determine the TCP/UDP ports used by the application you are hosting. A list of
commonly used ports can be found at http://www.iana.org/assignments/portnumbers.
2. Open the configuration utility.
3. In the menu bar down the left side of the screen, select LAN.
4. In the menu bar on the top of the screen, select Port Forwarding. This opens the
Port Forwarding Configuration screen.
Page 8 of 26

UIP1868P Administrator's Guide and Software Reference
5. Under Port Range, enter the first port of the range you want to forward in the first
box and the last port of the range in the second box. If the service you are
supporting only uses one port, enter the same port number in both boxes.
#
Ports in each range must be consecutive. If your service uses non-consecutive
ports, simply enter them as two separate port ranges.
6. Under Protocol, select whether the ports in the range are UDP ports, TCP ports, or
BOTH.
7. Under Destination Address, enter the IP address of the computer you want the
data sent to.
8. Click ADD. The UIP1868P will add this port range to list of forwarded ports.
9. Repeat steps 5 through 8 for any additional ports ranges you want to forward. To
remove any port ranges from the list of forwarded ports, click the REMOVE button
beside the port range you want to delete.
Setting up a DMZ
If you want to have one computer on your network receive all un-forwarded data that
arrives at your firewall (for instance, because you want to monitor network traffic on
the WAN side or you have one computer running too many services to configure all
the forwarded ports), you can establish a single computer as a DMZ. Any data that is
not in a port forwarding range will be sent to the DMZ. Follow the steps below to
configure a computer as a DMZ.
CAUTION
The UIP1868P cannot protect a computer running as a DMZ from malicious
access. Any computer running as a DMZ should be running a PC based firewall.
#
Traffic sent to the DMZ is still subject to translation by NAT. This means that
applications that are damaged by NAT will still be affected.

UIP1868P Administrator's Guide and Software Reference
Router Configuration
Dynamic Routing
Dynamic routing allows the UIP1868P to learn routing tables from other network
devices by means of the Routing Information Protocol (RIP). With RIP, network
devices can broadcast messages containing information on the status of network
connections.
its connections. RX Mode means we listen to and process RIP messages, TX Mode
means we send RIP information to other routers..
RX Mode
Select ENABLED to have the UIP1868P process any RIP messages it receives from
other network devices. Select DISABLED to have the UIP1868P ignore any RIP
messages it receives.
TX Mode
Select ENABLED to have the UIP1868P broadcast RIP messages to other network
devices. Select DISABLED to prevent the UIP1868P from broadcasting RIP messages.
Static Routing
Static routing lets you configure particular IP addresses to be routed to the LAN port
or the WAN port of the adapter.
Dest IP Address
Enter the IP address of the device you want to configure static routing for. Any
Ethernet packets destined for this IP address will be routed according to this
configuration.
Subnet Mask
Enter the subnet mask of the destination device.
Gateway IP
Enter the IP address of the gateway (i.e., the next router in the network path) to the
destination device.
Page 18 of 26

UIP1868P Administrator's Guide and Software Reference
Metric
Enter the metric associated with this static route. The Metric field corresponds
roughly to the number of hops it takes to get to the network or host being entered.
Interface
Select LAN to route packets destined for this device to the LAN port; Select WAN to
route packets destined for this device to the WAN port.
Port Forwarding
The Internet uses ports to specify different types of service requests. For instance, an
email message contains a code for port 110 (POP3 mail services) while a web page
request contains a code for port 80 (HTTP services). This allows the router to send
the requests to the correct host: any marked as port 110 is routed to the mail server,
and any data marked as port 80 is routed to the web server.
If you want to set up one or more computers as a host, you must tell the router what
services should be sent to that host. This configuration is called port forwarding.
There are over four thousand ports defined for different services. Of these, about one
thousand are used most often and considered “well-known” ports. Complete lists of
all well-known ports are available on the Internet; search for “well-known ports”.
Reserved Ports
The adaptor reserves ports 5060-5061 and 10000-10015.
Port Forwarding to LAN
PORT RANGE
Enter the first and last numbers of the port range you wan to map to
this computer. If you want to forward a single port only, enter the
same port number in both spaces.
NOTE: Port ranges are consecutive. If you need to assign nonconsecutive ports to a computer, you must enter that computer
twice with different port ranges.
PROTOCOL
Select TCP, UDP, or BOTH (TCP/UDP) according to the needs of your
network.
DESTINATION
ADDRESS
Enter the IP address of the computer you want to use as the host
computer for these services, then click ADD.

UIP1868P Administrator's Guide and Software Reference
Port Triggering
Port triggering is essentially dynamic port forwarding. With port triggering, data
received on the specified ports is only forwarded to the LAN when outbound data
from the local computer enables or "triggers" the forwarding. This feature is useful for
services that require a response from the server, but the response may come in on a
different port.
For example, connecting to an IRC server uses the port range 6660-6670. After your
computer connects to the IRC server, the server confirms the connection on port 113.
In this case, you would set ports 6660-6670 as the trigger (outbound data) port range
and 113-113 as the incoming (reply data) port range. When your computer sends
data out on port 6660, the UIP1868P will then temporarily forward data received on
port 113 to your LAN.
Address Filtering Configuration
The Address Filtering Configuration screen lets you block certain computers from
accessing the Internet or from accessing certain services on the Internet. You can
filter computers by IP address or by MAC address.

UIP1868P Administrator's Guide and Software Reference
Blocked Private IP Range
Enter the range of IP addresses you want to block from accessing the Internet
connection.
Blocked Private Port Range (0 ~ 65535)
Enter the range of port numbers that define the Internet services you want to block
access to; you must also specify whether these port numbers use the TCP standard,
the UDP standard, or BOTH.
Blocked MAC Address
Enter the MAC or hardware address of any computers you want block from accessing
the Internet connection. Enter the 12 characters of the MAC address with no spaces
or punctuation.
DMZ Host Configuration
If you want to have one computer on your network receive all un-forwarded data that
arrives at your firewall (for instance, because you want to monitor network traffic on
the WAN side or you have one computer running too many services to configure all
the forwarded ports), you can establish a single computer as a DMZ. Any data that is
not in a port forwarding range will be sent to the DMZ. Follow the steps below to
configure a computer as a DMZ.
CAUTION
The UIP1868P cannot protect a computer configured to operate as the DMZ from
malicious access.
#
Traffic sent to the DMZ is still subject to translation by NAT. This means that
applications that are damaged by NAT will still be affected.
