NBX IP Address

NBX IP Address

NBX IP Address

I've just taken over support for a 3com NBX system. We have a large number of IP devices on our network and the last IT guy responsible for the telephone system never left any documentation. How could I find out what the IP address is for this NBX unit (so I connect via netset)?
Also, is it possible to connect to the NBX Console port in order to get IP info?
We have a number of devices on our network which have 00-0a-04.... at the beginning of their MAC addresses. These addresses are assigned to 3com devices and I'm guessing these would be the IP Phones.

thank you.

RE: NBX IP Address

If you connect to the console port @ 9600 baud 8 none 1, reboot it and watch when it boots, you will get the IP info.  Once you log into netset you will see all devices and ip info through the telephone tab.

or type in nbxIpConfig at the console

RE: NBX IP Address

I connected via the serial port and used "ipstatShow" to get the IP address. Thanks for you replies.
