  2. Download the cop file  (cmterm-ata-3.2.4-sccp.cop.sgn)
  3. Configure the pool address of the DHCP Server (FTPD32)

  11. Press on the function Button found on the top of the ATA 186

    • Hello
      if you are a cisco partner then you can download the cmterm-ata-3.2.4-sccp.cop.sgn from their website and it is normally zipped

      I recommand using FTPD32 to be in isolated network
      the FTPD32 is a dhcp server that will give to your pc and to your ata an IP address

      when you use a DHCP server you must define a pool for example ;
      pool 1 : until
      then connect your pc to your ata via a straight cable
      both your pc and ata will get an ip address 192.168.2.x
