Before you can register your Cisco endpoint to the StarLeaf platform, you must first add it to the StarLeaf Portal. Refer to How to add an H.323 endpoint to the StarLeaf Portal.

To configure the H.323 settings of the Cisco EX90 endpoint, you must access its web interface and make some changes. To do so:

  1. Statically assign the IP address for the EX90 endpoint by going to Settings > Administrator > IP & VLAN on the touch screen, then inputting the IP details manually.
  2. Navigate to the IP address in your browser; you are prompted for a username and password. The default username is admin and there is no password. If the default settings do not work then contact your system administrator.
  3. To edit the H.323 settings go to Configuration > System Configuration > H323.

  4. Use the following settings in the Profile 1 section. Note that you must choose Save after each change:
    • CallSetup Mode: choose Gatekeeper
    • PortAllocation: choose Dynamic
    • Authentication > LoginName: enter the Authentication name from the Portal
    • Authentication > Mode: choose On and enter the Authentication password from the Portal
    • Gatekeeper > Address: enter the gatekeeper address (the subdomain)
    • Gatekeeper > Discovery: choose Manual
    • H323Alias > E.164: enter the H.323 ID / name from the Portal
    • H323Alias > ID: enter the H.323 ID / name from the Portal
  5. If any SIP settings are enabled, these need to be disabled. SIP settings are located within Configuration > System Configuration > SIP.
  6. To test the configuration, call the H.323 ID of the EX90 endpoint from any StarLeaf device. If the call does not work, reboot the EX90 endpoint and retry.

Configuring the endpoint to display the directory

The StarLeaf directory supports Cisco/Tandberg endpoints, which connect to the directory over HTTP or HTTPS. Contact StarLeaf technical support to receive a single URL to use with all of your Cisco/Tandberg endpoints. This is of the form:

This is an example Cisco/Tandberg Configuration. To configure the directory for these endpoints, navigate to the IP address in your browser and then to Configuration > System Configuration > Phonebook Server, entering the supplied URL. The phonebook Type is TMS and the ID field should be left blank.
