During installation, the H323 IP phones request software by downloading and following instructions within the
46xxupgrade.scr file. This file is provided as part of the IP Office Manager software and should not normally be
The last lines of the 46xxupgrade.scr file instruct the phone to request the file 46xxsettings.scr or 46xxsettings.txt.
If present, that file is downloaded and used to set customer site specific options for the H323 IP phones. It is this
46xxsettings file that is used to contain site specific options for phones and should be edited to meet the customer
requirements before installation of the phones.
1.Using Windows Notepad or any other plain text editing tool, open the 46xxsettings.txt file.
2.Edit the file as required. The file contains numerous comments and notes. Further details of the various settings
are contained in the 4600 Series IP Telephone LAN Administrator Guide. For some specific options see the notes

Normally this is the same folder as the Manager application.
4.Ensure that you have a copy of the edited file.
For IP Office systems the addition or removal of dialing prefixes is normally done by the IP Office system rather than
individual phones or applications. For IP Office operation the following changes are recommended in the ENHANCED LOCAL
DIALING RULES section of the 46xxsettings.txt file.
·Change ## SET ENHDIALSTAT 0 to ENDIALSTAT 0.
·Change ## SET PHNOL 9 to SET PHNOL "".
Unless specifically required for the customer network, for IP Office operation it is recommended that ## SET L2Q 0 is
changed to SET L2Q 2.
WML Web Server Setup
If a WML web site has been setup for viewing by phone users, see WML Server Setup , the site address is set through
the 46xxsettings file. Change ## WMLHOME http://..... to WMLHOME followed by the required address.
1600 Series Phone Languages
In addition to English, the 1600 phones can support up to 4 language other languages. This is done by the phones
downloading languages files specified in the 46xxsettings.txt file. Currently 9 non-English language files are provided as
part of the IP Office Manager installation.
The files to download to the phones are defined in the # SETTINGS1603, # SETTINGS1608 and # SETTINGS1616 sections
of the 46xxsettings.txt file. To have the phone download a language file, remove the ## in front of one of the SET
options and change the file name to match the required language.
Phones can use an HTTP server as a location to which the user's phone settings are backed up and restore when they log
on or off the phone. See Backup Restore for full details.
