SPA8000: Saving a SPA8000's Configuration

Ever wonder how you can send your SPA8000's configuration to someone for analysis?

It's simple and is done in a few seconds.

You'll need:

  - Device's IP address

  - Computer with network access  to the device

  - Administration password for device [if set]

  - WAN access to the device's administration web server

Determining the SPA8000's IP Address:

  1. Connect an analog telephone to the PHONE 1 port of the device.

  2. Pick up the handset and press

  3. **** (in other words, press the star key four times). [You may not hear dial tone]

  4. After the greeting plays, determine the device's IP address by dialing 110#

   5.  Hang up the handset

Save the SPA8000's Configuration as Follows:

There are two distinct sections that must be saved separately, namely the Network tab and the Voice tab.

A. Saving the Network configuration of the SPA8000:

1. Direct your browser to http://<IP_of_device>/admin/advanced

2. Use your browser's save page feature to write the device's entire Network configuration to a single file:

      • IE: Page > Save As > Save as type Webpage, HTML only
      • FireFox: File > Save Page As > Save as type Web Page, complete

3. Name the file as follows: SPA8000-Network_date_time.html

Example: SPA8000-Network_Sep082009_06h44.html

B. Saving the Voice configuration of the SPA8000:

1. Direct your browser to http://<IP_of_device>/admin/voice/advanced

2. Use your browser's save page feature to write the device's entire Voice configuration to a single file:

      • IE: Page > Save As > Save as type Webpage, HTML only
      • FireFox: File > Save Page As > Save as type Web Page, complete

3. Name the file as follows: SPA8000-Voice_date_time.html

Example: SPA8000-Voice_Sep082009_06h44.html

Now you can send the HTML configuration files to someone in order to show them how you have configured the device. Don't worry, they cannot access your device's passwords.

That's not terribly useful for provisioning. How do you ask the device to generate an XML file so you can use it for provisioning purposes?

Hello Supermathie,

From a browser window, login to the device with the Administrator username and password.

Type in the following command which will show the configuration in an xml format:

http://<spa_ip_address>/admin/config.xml

On my device (SW ver 6.1.7(GW) - the ONLY version available on the Cisco site), the response is:

404 Not Found !

Hi, I'm having troubles accesing it via Web, I set a password, but several days after I can't log into the SPA 8800 using the same password that I set before. Any idea?

Thank you!

If you want an XML file, type in the following command which will show the configuration in an xml format:

http://<spa_ip_address>/spacfg.xml
