To make it easier for our customers to make the transition from v6 to v7 firmware versions on their snom 3x0 phones, we have set up an automatic update service.

The following step-by-step specifications describe how to use this service.

Choosing a Setting Server URL

To utilize the Automatic Update Service, set the telephone to the following URL as Setting Server URL:

Update Once to current v7 Firmware Release

Choose the following URL if you wish to update your phone from a version below v7 to the current v7 firmware release and then not update to new releases automatically:

http://provisioning.snom.com/from6to7/update_once.php

This version is particularly suitable for updating larger numbers of phones to the current v7 version and then deploying them in whatever settings (distributors, resellers).

Automated Update to current v7 Firmware Release

Choose the following URL if you wish to update your phone from a version below v7 to the current v7 firmware release and then have it keep updating automatically to new releases:

http://provisioning.snom.com/from6to7/update.php 

This link will keep your phone firmware automatically up-to-date and you will not have to pay any further attention to it.

Automatic Configuration of the Setting (provisioning) URL using DHCP (Option 66/67)

  1. Set up the DHCP Server for automatic transmittal of the Setting (provisoning) URL.
  2. Reboot the phone which will automatically begin to do the necessary updates one after the other, until it has updated to all current parts of the firmware.

Manual Configuration of the Setting Server URL

Set the Setting (provisioning) URL via the Web User Interface:

  • Open the Update section
  • Delete the content of the field Setting URL and enter one of the values described in Setting Server URL. *Do not change any other values!
  • Save the new Setting Server URL by clicking on the Save button at the bottom of the page.
  • Reboot the phone. The automatic process starts and all necessary updates will be consecutively downloaded and installed.
