Introduction
This administrator and provisioning guide contains detailed instructions for
configuring the VSP600 DECT SIP cordless base station and VSP601 cordless
handset. Please read this guide before attempting to configure the devices.
Audience
This guide is written for installers and system administrators. It assumes that you
are familiar with networks and VoIP, both in theory and in practice. This guide also
assumes that you have ordered your IP PBX equipment or service and selected which
PBX features you want to implement. This guide references specific IP PBX
equipment or services only for features or settings that have been designed for a
specific service. Please consult your equipment or service provider for recommended
switches, routers, and firewall and NAT traversal settings, and so on.
As the VSP600 base station becomes certified for IP PBX equipment or services,
VTech may make interop guides available for those specific services. The interop
guides will recommend second-party devices and settings, along with base-stationspecific configurations for optimal performance with those services.

Introduction
VSP600/VSP601 Administrator and Provisioning Manual
You can configure the base station using a browser-based interface called the
WebUI, or an automatic provisioning process (see Provisioning Using Configuration
Files on page 53). The WebUI enables you to configure the base station using a PC
that is connected to the same Local Area Network. The WebUI resides on the base
station and may get updated with firmware updates.

Introduction
VSP600/VSP601 Administrator and Provisioning Manual
Network Requirements
A switched network topology is recommended for your LAN (using standard 10/100
Ethernet switches that carry traffic at a nominal rate of 100 Mbit/s).
The office LAN infrastructure should use Cat.-5/Cat.-5e cable.
The base station requires a wired connection to the LAN. However, wireless
connections to other devices (such as laptops) in your office will not impede
performance.
A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server is recommended and must be
on the same subnet as the base station so that an IP address can be auto-assigned.
In most cases, your network router will have a DHCP server. By default, the base
station has DHCP enabled for automatic IP address assignment.
NOTE: Some DHCP servers have default settings that limit the number of network IP
addresses assigned to devices on the network. You should log in to your server to
confirm that the IP range is sufficient.
If no DHCP server is present, you can assign a static IP to the base station. You can
assign a static IP address using the WebUI. See Basic Network Settings on page 28.
If you do not have a DHCP server or do not manually assign a static IP, you will not
be able to access the WebUI and/or enable automatic time updates from an NTP
server.
A DNS server is recommended to resolve the path to the Internet and to a server for
firmware and configuration updates. If necessary, the system administrator can also
download upgrade files and use the WebUI to update the base station firmware
and/or configuration settings manually.

Network Requirements
VSP600/VSP601 Administrator and Provisioning Manual
Configuring the Base Station
You can configure the base station using one of two methods:
 The Web User Interface, or WebUI, which you access using your Internet
browser. See Using the WebUI on page 9. The browser-based interface is easy
to navigate and best-suited to configuring a wide variety of settings. The
WebUI has every setting required for configuring the base station and
handsets. You can enter service provider account settings on the WebUI, assign
accounts to handsets, and set up provisioning, which will allow you to
automatically and remotely update the base station after initial configuration.
 Provisioning using configuration files. Working with configuration files allows
you to configure the base station at regular intervals. There are several
methods available to enable the base station to locate and upload a
configuration file. For example, you can enable the base station, when it starts
up or reboots, to check for the presence of a configuration file on a provisioning
server. If the configuration file is new or has been modified in any way, the
base station automatically downloads the file and applies the new settings. For
more information, see Provisioning Using Configuration Files on page 53.
Most of the settings accessible on the handset are most useful for end users. The
handset menus allow users to customize the screen appearance, sounds, and
manage calls. For more information, see the VSP600/VSP601 User Guide.

WebUI: System
VSP600/VSP601 Administrator and Provisioning Manual
Dial Plan
The dial plan consists of a series of dialing rules, or strings, that determine whether
what the user has dialed is valid and when the handset should dial the number.
Dialing rules must consist of the elements defined in the table below.
Element
x
[0-9]
x+
Description
Any dial pad key from 0 to 9, including # and *.
Any two numbers separated by a hyphen, where the second number is greater
than the first. All numbers within the range or valid, excluding # and *.
An unlimited series of digits.
,
This represents the playing of a secondary dial tone after the user enters
the digit(s) specified or dials an external call prefix before the comma. For
instance, “9,xxxxxxx” means the secondary dial tone is played after the
user dials 9 until any new digit is entered. “9,3xxxxxx” means that only
when the digit 3 is hit would the secondary dial tone stop playing.
PX
This represents a pause of a defined time; X is the pause duration in
seconds. For instance, “P3” would represent pause duration of 3 seconds.
When “P” only is used, the pause time is the same as the Inter Digit
Timeout (see SIP Account Management on page 13).
(0:9)
This is a substitution rule where the first number is replaced by the second.
For example, “(4:723)xxxx” would replace “46789” with “723-6789”. If the
substituted number (the first number) is empty, the second number is
added to the number dialed. For example, in “(:1)xxxxxxxxxx”, the digit 1
is appended to any 10-digit number dialed.
|
This separator is used to indicate the start of a new pattern. Can be used to
add multiple dialing rules to one pattern edit box.
A sample dial plan appears below.

Provisioning
Provisioning refers to the process of acquiring and applying new settings for the base
station using configuration files retrieved from a remote computer. After a base
station is deployed, subsequent provisioning can update the base station with new
settings; for example, if your service provider releases new features. See also
Provisioning Using Configuration Files on page 53.
With automatic provisioning, you enable the base station to get its settings
automatically—the process occurs in the background as part of routine system
operation.
With manual provisioning, you update the base station settings (configuration and/or
firmware) yourself via Provisioning > Import Configuration and/or Firmware
Upgrade > Manual Upgrade.
On the Provisioning page, you can enter settings that will enable the base station
to receive automatic configuration and firmware updates. The Provisioning page also
allows you to manually update base station configuration from a locally stored
configuration file using an Import function. You can also export the base station
configuration—either to back it up or to apply it to another base station—to a file on
your computer.
The provisioning process functions according to the Resynchronization settings and
Provisioning Server Settings. The base station checks for the provisioning URL
from the following sources in the order listed below:
1. PnP—Plug and Play Subscribe and Notify protocol
2. DHCP Options
3. Preconfigured URL
If one of these sources is disabled, not available, or has not been configured, the
base station proceeds to the next source until reaching the end of the list.
The provisioning settings are also available as parameters in the configuration file.

Provisioning Using Configuration Files
Provisioning using configuration files allows you to place a configuration file on a
provisioning server, where the base station can retrieve the file and update its
configuration automatically.
Configuration files have the extension .cfg and contain parameters that define
various base station settings. To edit a configuration file, open it with a text editor
such as Notepad.
The parameters (or settings) within configuration files are grouped into modules.
Most of the modules group their settings in the same way that settings are grouped
on the WebUI. For example, the “time_date” module contains the same settings that
are on the Time and Date WebUI page.
Using the WebUI, you can also import a configuration file and apply the configuration
file settings to the base station. For more information, see Provisioning on page 43.
Resynchronization—Configuration File Checking
You can select a number of options to set when the base station checks for new
configuration files. This process of checking for configuration files is called
Resynchronization. Resynchronization options are available on the WebUI
Provisioning page, but you can also include them in a configuration file.
The resynchronization options are:
 Mode—sets the base station to check for a configuration file only, a firmware
update file only, or both types of file.
 Never—configuration file checking is disabled
 Bootup—the base station checks for new configuration files when it boots up.
Any updates are applied during the boot-up process.
 Remote check-sync—enables you to start a resynchronization remotely using
your hosted server’s web portal. The Remote check-sync settings are available
only in the configuration file, not the WebUI.
 Repeatedly, at a defined interval from 60 to 65535 minutes (45 days).
The Provisioning Process
The base station’s automatic provisioning process is as follows:
1. Check for new or updated configuration files. The base station maintains a list of
the last loaded provisioning files. The base station compares its current
configuration against the files it finds on the provisioning server.
If provisioning has been triggered by the resync timer expiring or by remote
check-sync, the base station checks for updated files after one minute of
inactivity.
2. Download the configuration files.
If any file on the provisioning server has changed, the base station treats it as a
new file and downloads it.
53
Provisioning Using Configuration Files
VSP600/VSP601 Administrator and Provisioning Manual
If the provisioning URL specifies a path only with no filename, then by default the
base station fetches the following two files:
 General file: <model>.cfg.
 MAC-specific file: <model>_<MAC Address>.cfg.
The <model> variable is the VTech product model: VSP600, for example.
If the provisioning URL specifies both a path and filename, then the base station
fetches only the configuration file specified.
3. The base station restarts after one minute of inactivity.
During provisioning, the base station reads the configuration file and validates each
module and setting. The base station considers a setting valid if it is:




a valid data type
formatted as a valid setting
within a valid data range
part of a module that passes an integrity check. That is, the module’s settings
are consistent and logical. For example, in the “network” module, if DHCP is
disabled, but no static IP address is specified, the module will fail the integrity
check and none of the settings will apply.
Invalid modules or invalid settings are skipped and logged as ERRORs in the system
log, but will not interrupt the provisioning process. The system log will include the
module parameters that have not been applied. A recognized module with
unrecognized settings will cause all other settings in that module to be skipped.
A successful configuration or firmware update is reported as an INFO message in the
system log.
See Appendix A: Configuration File Settings on page 60 for the options and value
ranges available for each configuration file setting.
Base Station Restart
If the base station needs to restart after an auto-update, the restart happens only
after the base station has been idle for one minute.
To prevent users from delaying the update process (auto-updates cannot begin until
the base station has been idle for one minute), or to avoid base station restarts that
might interfere with incoming calls:
 set the resynchronization interval to a suitable period
 upload any new configuration file(s) to your provisioning server after work
hours so that the base station will download the file(s) when there is little or no
call activity.
When you update the base station by importing a configuration file using the WebUI,
the base station restarts immediately after applying the new settings, regardless of
whether the base station is idle.
54
Provisioning Using Configuration Files
VSP600/VSP601 Administrator and Provisioning Manual
Configuration File Types
The base station is able to retrieve and download two types of configuration file.
Depending on your requirements, you may want to make both types of configuration
file available on your provisioning server.
The two configuration file types are a general configuration file and a MAC-specific
configuration file. The types differ in name only. The formatting of the files’ content
is identical.
The general configuration file contains settings that are required by all base stations
in the system.
The MAC-specific configuration file is a file that only a single base station can
retrieve. The MAC-specific configuration file name contains a base station’s MAC
address and can only be retrieved by the base station with a matching MAC address.
The filename formats for both files are:
 General file: <model>.cfg
 MAC-specific file: <model>_<MAC Address>.cfg
The <model> variable is the VTech product model; for example, VSP600. For more
information about the MAC-specific configuration file, see Guidelines for the MACSpecific Configuration File on page 56.
If the provisioning URL specifies a path only with no filename, then by default the
base station will fetch both files.
However, if the provisioning URL specifies both a path and filename, then the base
station will only fetch the single configuration file specified.
Both the general and MAC-specific files can contain any of the available configuration
settings. A setting can appear in the general configuration file or the unit
configuration file, or both files, or neither file. If a setting appears in both files, the
setting that is read last is the one that applies.
When the base station fetches both a general and a MAC-specific configuration file,
the general file is processed first. You can configure a setting for most of your base
stations in the general file, and then overwrite that setting for just a few base
stations using the MAC-specific file.
Data Files
The configuration file can also include links to data files for product customization.
Allowed data types include the following:
 Directory (contacts, blacklist) in xml format
 Certificates (server and provisioning) in pem format
Links to data files are in the configuration file’s “file” module. This is where you enter
any URLs to the data files you require.
None of the data files are exported when you export a configuration file from the
base station. However, you can export a Directory or Blacklist .xml file using the
WebUI. After modifying the .xml file, you can use the configuration file “file” module
to have the base station import the new file. For a complete list of data file
parameters, see “file” Module: Imported File Settings on page 88.

Provisioning Using Configuration Files
VSP600/VSP601 Administrator and Provisioning Manual
Configuration File Guide
All configuration settings are initially stored in a configuration template file. Copy,
rename, and edit the template file to create a general configuration file and the MACspecific configuration files you will need. You can store the general configuration file
and the MAC-specific files on your provisioning server.
Do not modify the header line that includes the model and firmware version.
To save yourself time and effort, consider which settings will be common to all (or
the majority of) base stations. Such settings might include Call settings, language,
and NAT settings. You can then edit those settings in the configuration template and
save it as the general configuration file. The remaining settings will make up the
MAC-specific configuration file, which you will have to copy and edit for each base
station.
Guidelines for the MAC-Specific Configuration File
The base station downloads the MAC-specific configuration file after the Main
configuration file. You must create a MAC-specific configuration file for each base
station in your system. The file name must contain the base station’s MAC address,
which is printed on a label on the bottom of the base station. For example, a VTech
VSP600 base station with the MAC address of 00:11:A0:10:6F:2D would download
the VSP600_0011A0106F2D.cfg file.
NOTE: When renaming a MAC-specific configuration file, ensure the filename is all
upper case.
The MAC-specific configuration file contains settings intended exclusively for that
base station. Such settings will include SIP account settings such as display name,
user ID, and authentication ID.
Securing Configuration Files with AES Encryption
You can encrypt your configuration files to prevent unauthorized users modifying the
configuration files. The base station firmware decrypts files using the AES 256
algorithm. After encrypting a file and placing it on your provisioning server, you can
enable the base station to decrypt the file after fetching it from the server.
The procedures in this section use OpenSSL for file encryption. The illustration
provided shows OpenSSL for Windows.
To decrypt a configuration file, you will need a 16-character AES key that you specified
when you encrypted the file. The key (or passphrase) is limited to 16 characters and
supports special characters ~^`%!&-_+=|.@*:;,?()[]{}<>/\# as well as spaces.
NOTE: The encryption of configuration files is supported only for the auto
provisioning process. Encrypt files only if you intend to store them on a provisioning
server. Do not encrypt files that you intend to manually import to the base station.
You cannot enable decryption for manually imported configuration files.
56
Provisioning Using Configuration Files
VSP600/VSP601 Administrator and Provisioning Manual
To encrypt a configuration file:
1. (Optional) Place your configuration file in the same folder as the openssl
executable file. If the configuration file is not in the same folder as the openssl
executable file, you can enter a relative pathname for the [infile] in the next step.
2. On the openssl command line, type:
enc -aes-256-cbc -pass pass:[passphrase123456] -in [infile] -out [outfile] -nosalt -p
Elements in brackets are examples—do not enter the brackets. Enter a 16-character
passphrase and the unencrypted configuration file filename (the “infile”) and a name
for the encrypted file (“outfile”) that will result.
To enable configuration file decryption:
1. On the WebUI, click Servicing > Provisioning.
2. On the Provisioning page under Resynchronization, select Use Encryption for
configuration file.
3. Enter the 16-character passphrase that you created when you encrypted the
configuration file.
4. Click Save.
NOTE: You must ensure that configuration files are encrypted when enabling AES
Encryption. Decrypting an unencrypted file will result in a garbage file that is not
processed. This will also be logged as an error in the system log.

Troubleshooting
If you have difficulty with your base station, please try the suggestions below. For
customer service, visit our website at businessphones.vtech.com or call
1 (888) 370-2006.
The DECT handset doesn’t register. “Registration failed” appears on the
screen.
 Ensure the handset is fully charged and in the charger.
 Ensure the handset is not already registered to another base station. If it has
been registered to another base station, deregister it.
My caller ID isn’t working.
 Caller ID is a subscription service. You must subscribe to this service from your
telephone service provider for this feature to work on your telephone.
 The caller must be calling from an area that supports caller ID.
 Both your and your caller’s telephone service providers must use caller ID
compatible equipment.
The manual firmware upgrade or configuration update isn’t working.
 Before using the WebUI, ensure you have the latest version of your web
browser installed. Some menus and controls in older browsers may operate
differently than described in this manual.
 Ensure you have specified the correct path to the firmware and configuration
files on the SERVICING > Firmware Upgrade > Auto Upgrade page and
the SERVICING > Provisioning page.
Provisioning: “Use DHCP Option” is enabled, but the base station is not
getting a provisioning URL from the DHCP Server.
 Ensure that DHCP is enabled in Network settings.

Appendix A: Configuration File Settings
This section lists the available options for all the settings within the configuration file.
Most settings in the configuration file have an equivalent in the WebUI (see the
settings tables in Using the WebUI on page 9). However, the options you must enter
when editing the configuration file have a different syntax and format.
The settings are divided into modules. Each module loosely corresponds to a page on
the WebUI. You may wish to reorganize the modules within the configuration file
itself. The configuration file settings can be listed in any order, and the configuration
file will still be valid.
“sip_account” Module: SIP Account Settings
The SIP Account settings enable you to configure SIP accounts for the base station.
You can add up to six accounts for each base station. Each account requires you to
configure the same group of SIP account settings. The SIP account settings for each
account are identified by the account number, from 1 to 6 for the VSP600 base
station, for example.
For example, for account 1 you would set:
sip_account.1.sip_account_enable = 1
sip_account.1.display_name = 1001
sip_account.1.user_id = 2325551001
and so on.
For account 2, you would set:
sip_account.2.sip_account_enable = 1
sip_account.2.display_name = 1002
sip_account.2.user_id = 2325551002
and so on.
The SIP account settings follow the format: sip_account.x.[element], where x is an
account number ranging from 1 to 6 for the VSP600 base station.
All these settings are exported when you manually export the configuration from the
base station.
