Can I password the network config of an IP phone such that it cant be edited by pressing the **# key?

Hi,

Refer your call Manager documentation for details.


In short,

1) Define Common Phone Profile

2) In that profile set the lock unlock password

3) From the phone device, select the above "common phone profile"

You should be done.

When using SCCP Load, this cannot be done. Using custom passwords would only work incase the phones are running SIP Loads.

You mean, from the phone when **# is pressed it should ask for password. Right ? This is possible, with Common Phone Profile parameter ( I've done it once - guess its the same).


With This, Unlock password will be asked when **# is pressed.

Common Phone Profiles

Cisco Unified CallManager uses common phone profiles to define phone attributes that are associated

with Cisco Unified IP Phones. Having these attributes in a profile instead of adding them individually to

every phone decreases the amount of time that administrators spend configuring phones and allows the

administrator to change the values for a group of phones. Common phone profiles specify the following

attributes:

• Profile name

• Profile description

• Local phone unlock password

• End user access to phone background image setting

The common phone profile remains a required field when phones are configured; therefore, you must

create the common phone profile before you create a phone. Cisco Unified CallManager provides a

Standard Common Phone Profile that you can copy and modify to create a new common phone profile.

You cannot, however, modify nor delete the Standard Common Phone Profile.

For information on configuring common phone profiles, see “Common Phone Profile Configuration” in

the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration Guide.
