ATA 168 from V

I have as ATA 168. It is from V+++. Sw ver V3.2.0

I have the DCHP url   from VIR. It appears  not to be password locked.

I enter it in the browser  it says not found.

I cannot look at the config menu.

I tried 3 browsers - even turned off the FW.

Has to be something simple?

Any advice? I have read all the ATA 186 posts

Assuming u mean ATA186.

Can u ping ATA's IP (as learnt from IVR menu?) from the PC you are trying to http to ?

Please see following doc and try assigning it a static IP via IVR menu preferably on the

same subnet as the PC you have and try http again:

OK it appears it  password locked. I cannot change the IP adr.

Tried the password reset no luck.

Guess I cannot use this for another VOIP service.

I will read more about the password rest, but I think I am at a  loss.

Looks like V has won one

Password research follow-up . Appears   from  what I read and what I have tried to program, I cannot use this ATA on any other VOIP network.. NO way to reset the password or the config

Tried factory reset ?

Step 1 Press  the function button on the Cisco ATA.

Step 2 Press  the digits 322873738 (FACTRESET)  then press # on your  telephone keypad.

Step 3 Press  3 on  your telephone keypad to confirm that you want to reset the Cisco ATA, then hang  up the phone.

Yes did that. It keeps asking for the password.. nope it is locked by V. I will try to contact them for the password. I closed the acct years ago. I want to try another VOIP  service  - cheaper  but do not want to invest in another ATA
