Summary

This document will describe the steps required to configure an AudioCodes Mediant 500L gateway to work with Zetafax and the Fax over IP connector.

More information

Ensure you have connected the power supply, BRI line(s) and LAN via an Ethernet connection.

To configure your Zetafax system, there are two simple stages. The first stage is to configure your Audiocodes media gateway. Once this has been completed you can proceed to the second stage configuring your Zetafax server.

Step 1: Setting the IP Address

By default the AudioCodes gateway is configured with the IP address of 192.168.0.2. This IP address will most likely need to be changed to fit into your existing infrastructure. The AudioCodes media must be set with a static IP address.

To assign an IP address using the Web interface

1.     Disconnect any network cables from the device.

2.     Connect Port 1 (left-most LAN port) of the device directly to the network interface of your computer, using a straight-through Ethernet cable.

3.     Set the computer’s IP address to 192.168.0.4/24.

4.     On your computer, start a Web browser and in the URL address field, enter the default IP address of the device; the Web interface's Login screen appears

5.     In the 'User Name' and 'Password' fields, enter the default login user name "Admin" (case-sensitive) and password "Admin" (case-sensitive), and then click OK; the device's Web interface is accessed

6.     Open the Multiple Interface Table page (Configuration tab > VoIP menu > Network submenu > IP Interfaces Table).

7.     Select the 'Index' row corresponding to the "OAMP + Media + Control" application type, and click Edit.

8.     Change the IP address, subnet mask, and Default Gateway IP address to correspond with your network IP addressing scheme (e.g., 10.8.6.86).

9.     Please select Device Actions and Reset from the top of the page. This will burn the changes and reboot the Unit.

10.  You can now plug the unit into the main network and reconnect to the unit through the web interface.

Step 2: Configure Audio Codes Gateway

Note:Please ensure that the Advanced view is selected which displays all menus pertaining to a configuration tab.

You must click the burn option to save the changes to the unit. If you do not burn the settings to the gateway when power is lost, the settings will also be lost.
