Well , After Manually attempting to set up the 2170 and 1780 telephones I found something out
2170 telephones download the correct template and update correctly , almost immediately too !
1780 telephones do not
Back in the beginning ( A week and a half ago ) my internet connection in my lab was not set up so I had to download the template manually from the Grandstream server . Upon completing this I added the template in and it shows up in the list . I now have internet in my lab and I did notice after this was working , a host of new templates appeared in the list as well !
BUT : No matter what I do I cannot get the 1780 template to download to the tels . I set the other 20 1780 tels up manually as I need to get ready to deploy . Not sure of the effects of manually setting up and getting the template download resolved to auto download to the 1780 tels … Onsite we will investigate further as we have a production network up and running well now . What I did NOT do is try and set up an HTTPS server as I enabled it but did not follow thru with finishing this . I will onsite and make a repository for our code for phones and system and I will make a directory for templates as well .
