Elmeg IP290 Configuration



The Elmeg IP290 are a clone of the Old Snom 190 Sets. and these did support auto configuration. We hoped that it was a simple change to get the files working with the Elmeg.

It turns out that it wasn’t, There are a few gotchas.

  1. The phones dont seem to support tftp download, Just http and https
  2. They dont support sub directories. So files must be in the root directory of your webserver.

Firstly you need to configure your dhcpd.conf

Add the following to the general section

option snom-setting code 66 = string;
option snom-bootfile code 67 = string;

Then the following to the subnet

class “snom-phones” {
match if substring(hardware,1,3) = 00:09:4f;
option snom-setting “https://SERVERIP”;

Theb the following are the two files you need to create .
