IPv6 Address

Allows users to configure the appropriate network settings on the HT813 to obtain IPv6 address. Users could select “DHCP”, “Static IP”. By default, it is set to “DHCP”.

  • DHCP mode: all the field values for the static IP mode are not used (even though they are still saved in the flash memory.) The ATA acquires its IP address from the first DHCP server it discovers from the LAN it is connected.
  • Static IP mode: configure IP address, 1st and 2nd DNS server, preferred DNS server. These fields are set to zero by default.
  • Full Static: When enabling the option full static, users need to specify the Static IPv6 and the IPv6 Prefix length.
  • Prefix Static: When enabling the option prefix static, users need to specify the IPv6 Prefix (64 bits).

Time Zone

Selects time zone to define date/time on the device.

Self-Defined Time Zone

Allows users to define their own time zone.

Allow DHCP server to set Time Zone

Obtains time zone setting (offset) from a DHCP server using DHCP Option 2; it will override selected time zone. If set to “No”, the analogue adapter will use selected time zone even if provided by DHCP server. Default is Yes.

Language

NAT/DHCP Server Information & Configuration

Device Mode

Controls whether the device is working in NAT router, Bridge or WAN Only mode.

  • NAT Router: In this mode, WAN port acts as DHCP client. LAN port is used as DHCP Base IP; devices connected behind LAN port will be assigned an IP from HT813 DHCP Server.
  • Bridge: In this mode, WAN port acts as DHCP client and pass-through to LAN port; devices connected behind LAN port will get an IP from your network DHCP server (same as WAN port).
  • WAN Only: In this mode, only WAN port is active. LAN port is not used.

Default mode is NAT Router.

Save the setting and reboot prior to configuring the HT813.

NAT Maximum Ports

Defines the number of ports that can be managed while in NAT router mode.

Range: 0 – 4096, default is 1024. Typically, one port per connection

NAT TCP Timeout

NAT TCP idle timeout in seconds. Connection will be closed after preconfigured, timeout if not refreshed. Range: 0 – 3600

NAT UDP Timeout

NAT TCP idle timeout in seconds. Connection will be closed after preconfigured, timeout if not refreshed. Range: 0 – 3600, default is 300

Uplink Bandwidth

Specifies the maximum uplink bandwidth permitted by the device. This function is disabled by default. The total bandwidth can be set as: 128K, 256K, 512K, 1M, 2M, 3M, 4M, 5M, 10M or 15M. The primary function of this setting is to limit the uplink bandwidth for the device internal system, signaling and NATed traffic. Example: When 512k is configured, there will be at least 512kbps limited for internal system, signaling and NATed traffic. Voice or RTP stream will never be limited.

Downlink Bandwidth

Specifies the maximum downlink bandwidth permitted by the device. This function is disabled by default. The total bandwidth can be set as: 128K, 256K, 512K, 1M, 2M, 3M, 4M, 5M, 10M or 15M. The primary function of this setting is to limit the download bandwidth for the device internal system, signaling and NATed traffic. Example: if 128 is configured, there will be at least 128kbps limited for internal system, signaling and NATed traffic. Voice or RTP stream will never be limited.

Enable UPnP Support

When set to “Yes”, the HT813 acts as an UPnP gateway for your UPnP enabled applications. UPnP = “Universal Plug and Play”. Default is No.

Reply to ICMP on WAN Port

When set to “Yes”, the HT813 responds to the PING command from other computers but is also made vulnerable to DOS attacks. Default is No.

Cloned WAN MAC Address

This allows the user to change/set a specific MAC address on the WAN interface. Note: Set in Hex format.

Enable LAN DHCP

When set to “Yes”, device will function as a simple router and LAN port will provide IP addresses to internal network. Connect the WAN port to ADSL/Cable modem or any other equipment that provides access to public Internet

LAN DHCP Base IP

Base IP Address for a LAN port. Default factory setting is 192.168.2.1. Note: When the device detects WAN IP is conflicting with LAN IP, the LAN base IP address will be changed based on the network mask — the effective subnet will be increased by 1.

For example; 192.168.2.1 will be changed to 192.168.3.1 if net mask is 255.255.255.0. Then the device will reboot

LAN DHCP Start IP

Default value is 100. The last segment of IP address assigned to the HT813 in the LAN Network.

Default configuration assigns IP address (to local network devices) starting from 192.168.2.100.

LAN DHCP End IP

Default value is 199. This parameter allows a user to limit the number of local network devices connected to the internal router.

Default configuration assigns IP address (to devices connected to the LAN port) in a range from 192.168.2.100 up to 192.168.2.199.

Customizes the Ring Tone 1 to 3 with associate caller ID: when selected, if caller ID is configured, then the device will ONLY use this ring tone when the incoming call is from the Caller ID. System Ring Tone is used for all other calls. When selected but no Caller ID is configured, the selected ring tone will be used for all incoming calls using the FXS port. Distinctive ring tones can be configured not only for matching a whole number, but also for matching prefixes. In this case symbol “x+” will be used.

For example: If configured as 617x+, Ring Tone 1 will be used in case of call arrived from the area code 617. Any other incoming call will ring using cadence defined in parameter System Ring Cadence located under Advanced Settings Configuration page.

Note: If server supports Alert-Info header and standard ring tone set (Bellcore) or distinctive ring tone 1-10 is specified, then the ring tone in the Alert-Info header from server will be used. Bellcore rings and tones are independent from custom ring tones. The custom ring tones can also be specified by alert-info header, for example
Alert-Info:; info=ring5

    3. ^ – exclude;
    4. . – wildcard, matches one or more characters
    5. [3-5] – any digit of 3, 4, or 5;
    6. [147] – any digit 1, 4, or 7;
    7. <2=011> – replace digit 2 with 011 when dialing
    8. < =1> – add a leading 1 to all numbers dialed, vice versa will remove a 1 from the number dialed
    9. | – or
  • Example 1: {[369]11 | 1617xxxxxxx} –

Allow 311, 611, 911, and any 10-digit numbers of leading digits 1617

  • Example 2: {^1900x+ | <=1617>xxxxxxx} –

Example of a simple dial plan used in a Home/Office in the US:

{ ^1900x. | <=1617>[2-9]xxxxxx | 1[2-9]xx[2-9]xxxxxx | 011[2-9]x. | [3469]11 }

Dial Plan

Explanation of example rule (reading from left to right):

  • ^1900x. – prevents dialing any number started with 1900
  • <=1617>[2-9]xxxxxx – allows dialing to local area code (617) numbers by dialing 7 numbers and 1617 area code will be added automatically
  • 1[2-9]xx[2-9]xxxxxx – allows dialing to any US/Canada Number with 11-digit length
  • 011[2-9]x. – allows international calls starting with 011
  • [3469]11 – allow dialing special and emergency numbers 311, 411, 611 and 911

Note: In some cases, user wishes to dial strings such as *123 to activate voice mail or other application provided by service provider. In this case * should be predefined inside dial plan feature. As an example { *x+ } will allow to dial * followed by any length of numbers.

Send Hook Flash to PSTN

If Yes, hook flash will be sent to PSTN upon receiving flash event from RFC2833 or SIP INFO.

Hook Flash Duration (ms)

The time period when the cradle is pressed (Hook Flash) to simulate a FLASH. Adjust this time value to prevent unwanted activation of the Flash/Hold and automatic phone ring-back.

Gain

Voice path volume adjustment.

• RX is a gain level for signals transmitted by FXO (FXO-To-VoIP volume)

• TX is a gain level for signals received by FXO (FXO-To-PSTN volume).

Default = 0dB for both parameters. Loudest volume: +6dB; Lowest volume: -6dB.

User can adjust volume of call on either end using the Rx Gain Level parameter and the TX Gain Level parameter located on the FXO Port Configuration page. These parameters affect call volume ONLY for calls placed to/from PSTN and VoIP networks.

If call volume is too low when using VoIP extension, adjust volume using the Rx Gain Level parameter under the FXO Port Configuration page.

If voice volume is too low at the other end (PSTN side), user may increase the far end volume using the TX Gain Level parameter under the FXO Port Configuration page.

Outgoing Call Duration Limit

Defines the call duration limit for the outgoing calls, Default is 0 (No limit).

FXO Termination

Enable Current Disconnect

This value should be used in case the PSTN provider uses line power drop to indicate call completion to the end point. In this case the HT813 will search for a power drop.

Current Disconnect Threshold (ms)

This is a preconfigured value of duration for a line power drop used by specific service providers. For example, for a configured value of 500ms the device will ignore any random voltage drops on the line if duration of such drop is less than 500ms and the call will NOT be considered as terminated. This is useful to prevent unnecessary call drops in some low quality PSTN lines. Default is 100 ms. Range from 50 to 800 ms.

Enable PSTN Disconnect Tone Detection

If set to Yes, arrived Busy Tone is used as the disconnect signal.

PSTN Disconnect Tone

In certain countries, the central office will send a special busy tone to indicate when a call is disconnected from the remote side. User can pre-configure this tone on the ATA. The user should know the frequency values and cadences of these tones.

Here is an example for the syntax for a busy tone in the U.S.A:

Syntax: f1=freq@vol, f2=freq@vol, c=on1/off1-on2/off2-on3/off3;

Note: freq: 0 – 4000Hz; vol: -30 – 0dBm

Default: Busy Tone – f1=480@-32, f2=620@-32, c=500/500;

Note: Maximum supported cadences are 3

Enable Polarity Reversal

This should be set to Yes only if the FXO lines are subscribed to PR service from PSTN Service provider. It is merely a PR detect feature. Default is No.

Note: If there is no PR service from provider on the FXO line, and this setting is

configured to Yes, calls will not be successful.

Default is 600R – 600 ohms

Number of Rings

The FXO port will ring the number of times configured in this field before sending the call to the VoIP side. The supported range is 1-50. Default is 4.

PSTN Ring Thru FXS

If Yes, the phone connected to the FXS port will ring a configured number of times (see above). If not, the phone connected to the FXS port will not ring.

PSTN Ring Thru Delay (sec)

If the PSTN Ring Thru Delay is set to Yes, all incoming PSTN calls through FXO will ring the phone connected to the FXS port, after this delay or after caller id is detected (whichever comes first).

PSTN Ring Timeout (sec)

Range is 2-10 seconds. Default is 6 seconds. Option is used to detect PSTN hang up when FXO port is not answered.

PSTN Idle Wait Timeout between Outgoing Calls

Used to customize timeout value between PSTN outgoing calls. Range is 0-10 seconds. Default is 4 seconds.

Channel Dialing

DTMF Digit Length (ms)

Digit length and Dial Pause are port digit dialing configurations; FXO needs to dial out digits for VoIP to PSTN 1 stage calls, and unconditional call forward to PSTN, and route to PSTN. Digit Length is the play time for each digit.

Note: In order to receive the caller ID information, the delay should be set to a value larger than the delay required to complete the PSTN caller ID delivery.

DTMF Dial Pause (ms)

Dial pause is the time between 2 digits for the same scenario as explained above.

First Digit Timeout (sec)

Used for PSTN to VoIP calls. PSTN users need to enter the FIRST digit within the first digit timeout period. Otherwise the call will be dropped.

Inter-Digit Timeout

(sec)

When dialing from the PSTN to VoIP, subsequent digits must be input within the period of inter-digit timeout. Otherwise the dial plan thinks it is the end of the digit input.

Wait for Dial Tone

Wait for Dial tone is used for one stage VoIP to PSTN calls. If set to Yes, the device will first obtain a PSTN line and a dial tone from a central office. After obtaining the dial tone, the digits dialed will be sent to the central office.

Stage Method (1/2)

This configuration is applicable for VoIP to PSTN calls and indicates one or two stage dialing methods.

Min Delay Before Dial PSTN Number

The time to wait before HT813 initiates the call via PSTN line.

Default 500ms, range is from 50 to 65000ms.

Table 10: FXO Page

Important Settings

NAT Settings

If you plan to keep the Handy Tone within a private network behind a firewall, we recommend using STUN Server. The following three settings are useful in the STUN Server scenario:

  1. STUN Server (under advanced settings webpage) enter a STUN server IP (or FQDN) that you may have or look up a free public STUN server on the internet and enter it on this field. If using public IP, keep this field blank.
  2. Use random SIP/RTP ports (under advanced settings webpage), this setting depends on your network settings. Generally, if you have multiple IP devices under the same network, it should be set to Yes. If using a public IP address, set this parameter to No.
  3. NAT traversal (under the FXS and FXO web page) Set this to Yes when gateway is behind firewall on a private network.

DTMF Methods

The HT813 supports the following DTMF mode:

• DTMF in-audio

Configuration through a Central Server

The HT813 can be automatically configured from a central provisioning system.

When HT813 boots up, it will send TFTP, FTP/FTPS or HTTP/HTTPS requests to download configuration files, “cfg000b82xxxxxx” and “cfg00082xxxxxx.xml”, where “000b82xxxxxx” is the LAN MAC address of the HT813. If the download of “cfgxxxxxxxxxxxx.xml” is not successful, the provision program will issue request a generic configuration file “cfg.xml”. Configuration file name should be in lower case letters. The configuration data can be downloaded via TFTP, FTP/FTPS or HTTP/HTTPS from the central server. A service provider or an enterprise with large deployment of HT813 can easily manage the configuration and service provisioning of individual devices remotely from a central server.

Grandstream provides a central provisioning system GAPS (Grandstream Automated Provisioning System) to support automated configuration of Grandstream devices. GAPS use enhanced (NAT friendly) TFTP or HTTP (thus no NAT issues) and other communication protocols to communicate with each individual Grandstream device for firmware upgrade, remote reboot, etc. Grandstream provides GAPS service to VoIP service providers. Use GAPS for either simple redirection or with certain special provisioning settings. At boot-up, Grandstream devices by default point to Grandstream provisioning server GAPS, based on the unique MAC address of each device, GAPS provision the devices with redirection settings so that it will be redirected to customer’s TFTP or HTTP/HTTPS server for further provisioning. Grandstream also provides configuration tools (Windows and Linux/Unix version) to facilitate the task of generating device configuration files.

The Grandstream configuration tools are free to end users. The configuration tools and configuration templates are available for download from https://www.grandstream.com/support/tools

Figure 11: Firmware Upgrade Page

Upgrading via Local Directory

  1. Download the firmware file from Grandstream web site
  2. Unzip it and copy the file in to a folder in your PC
  3. From the HT813 web interface (Advanced Settings page) you can browse your hard drive and select the folder you previously saved the file (HT8xfw.bin)
  4. Click “Upload Firmware” and wait few minutes until the new program is loaded.

Always check the status page to see that the program version has changed.

Upgrading via Local TFTP/HTTP Servers

For users that would like to use remote upgrading without a local TFTP/FTP/HTTP server, Grandstream offers a NAT-friendly HTTP server. This enables users to download the latest software upgrades for their devices via this server. Please refer to the webpage:

https://www.grandstream.com/support/firmware

Alternatively, users can download a free TFTP or HTTP server and conduct a local firmware upgrade. A free window version TFTP server is available for download from:

http://www.solarwinds.com/products/freetools/free_tftp_server.aspx

http://tftpd32.jounin.net/.

Instructions for local firmware upgrade via TFTP:

  1. Unzip the firmware files and put all of them in the root directory of the TFTP server.
  2. Connect the PC running the TFTP server and the phone to the same LAN segment.
  3. Launch the TFTP server and go to the File menu->Configure->Security to change the TFTP server’s default setting from “Receive Only” to “Transmit Only” for the firmware upgrade.
  4. Start the TFTP server and configure the TFTP server in the phone’s web configuration interface.
  5. Configure the Firmware Server Path to the IP address of the PC.
  6. Save and Apply the changes and reboot the HT813.

End users can also choose to download a free HTTP server from http://httpd.apache.org/ or use

Microsoft IIS web server.

Firmware and Configuration File Prefix and Postfix

Firmware Prefix and Postfix allows device to download the firmware name with the matching Prefix and Postfix. This makes it the possible to store all of the firmware with different version in one single directory. Similarly, Config File Prefix and Postfix allows device to download the configuration file with the matching Prefix and Postfix. Thus, multiple configuration files for the same device can be stored in one directory. In addition, when the field “Check New Firmware only when F/W pre/suffix changes” is set to “Yes”, the device will only issue firmware upgrade request if there are changes in the firmware Prefix or Postfix.

Managing Firmware and Configuration File Download

When “Automatic Upgrade” is set “Yes, every” the auto check will be done in the minute specified in this field. If set to “daily at hour (0-23)”, Service Provider can use P193 (Auto Check Interval) to have the devices do a daily check at the hour set in this field with either Firmware Server or Config Server. If set to “weekly on day (0-6)” the auto check will be done on the day specified in this field. This allows the device to periodically check if there are any new changes need to be taken on a scheduled time. By defining different intervals in P193 for different devices, Server Provider can spread the Firmware or Configuration File download in minutes to reduce the Firmware or Provisioning Server load at any given time

Configuration File Download

Grandstream SIP Devices can be configured via the Web Interface as well as via a Configuration File (binary or XML) through TFTP, FTP/FTPS or HTTP/HTTPS. The Config Server Path is the TFTP or HTTP/HTTPS server path for the configuration file. It needs to be set to a valid URL, either in FQDN or IP address format. The Config Server Path can be the same or different from the Firmware Server Path.

A configuration parameter is associated with each particular field in the web configuration page. A parameter consists of a Capital letter P and 2 to 3 (Could be extended to 4 in the future) digit numeric numbers. i.e., P2 is associated with the “New Password” in the Web GUI->Maintenance->Web/SSH Access page->Admin Password. For a detailed parameter list, please refer to the corresponding firmware release configuration template.

When the HT813 boots up or reboots, it will send a request to download a file named “cfgxxxxxxxxxxxx” followed by a configuration XML file named “cfgxxxxxxxxxxxx.xml”, where “xxxxxxxxxxxx” is the MAC address of the phone, i.e., “cfg000b820102ab” and “cfg000b820102ab.xml”. If the download of “cfgxxxxxxxxxxxx.xml” file is not successful, the provision program will download a generic cfg.xml file. The configuration file name should be in lower case letters.

  • Only XML or binary config file formats are accepted.
  • The MAC header in XML config file should be the device MAC or needs to be removed completely.

Figure 12: XML Config File – MAC Header

RESTORE FACTORY DEFAULT SETTINGS

Restoring the Factory Default Settings will delete all configuration information on the phone. Please backup or print all the settings before you restore to the factory default settings.
