  2. Lift the handset then press FLASH button

  6. To change dial 01# (unit ID 1), 02# (unit ID 2), ETC.

Using an IP Phone

  1. Lift the handset and dial *55# on the phone
  2. (Some IP phones may use *55 Send, or *55 Dial)
  3. This will enter command mode. ( you may be asked for system password )
  4. When it asks you to enter your command please dial 00# (this will give you the current unit ID)
  5. Follow the phone system audio instructions, if given.

VIA the CLI please do the following:
