Configuring the Epygi Quadro 2X2

Set up the Epygi Quadro 2X2 SIP Server, with the approach that it is a 4-part process:

PART 1 - Configure the unit to the desired IP Address for the LAN it will be connected to.  From the factory, the Epygi SIP Server has a static IP assignment – 172.30.0.1, so in testing, we found that the best way to access and change the IP Address initially, was to perform the following steps (NOTE: This is assuming that the local LAN being used is not of a similar configuration.):

1.      Using a standard network patch cable, connect the Epygi to the local network using the LAN connection on the back of the Epygi.

2.      Connect the PC being used for configure of the Epygi, to the same network using a standard patch cable.

3.      Enter the PC’s Ethernet Adapter properties and set the Connection Type to Manual.

4.      Set the IP Address for the adapter to something similar to the Epygi – we used 172.30.0.100

5.      Set the Subnet Mask to 255.255.255.0

6.      Apply, Save, and then close the adapter’s properties.

7.      Open a browser and enter in the IP Address of the Epygi – 172.30.0.1
 
       
      
      
8.      Enter in the default User Name (admin) and Password (19) and click on Login.
 
9.      Click on System and select “Internet Configuration Wizard”.
 
      

10.  Click on Next.

11.  Leave the default “Ethernet” bulleted and click on Next.
 
            
      
12.  Bullet “Assign Manually” and enter in the desired IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway.  When finished, click on Next.
 
            
13.  For MAC Address Assignment, you can use the default, “This device”, or enter in a User Defined.  When finished, click on Next.
 
      
 
14.  Leave the DNS Settings as default for now, and click on Next.

      
 
15.  On the Summary Page, click on Finish.
 
 
        
    
16.  The Epygi will begin making the changes and initializing the Rollback feature.  When complete, a Confirm Settings page will appear – click on OK.  NOTE:  At this time, you will likely lose connection to the Epygi.

      
 

17.  On the PC, go back into the Ethernet Adapter’s properties and reset the Connection type to DHCP and reboot the PC.

18.  Move the patch from the LAN port, to the WAN port connection on the Epygi.

19.  Open a browser, type in the Epygi’s new IP Address and Login to the Epygi.

 
 
PART 2 – Adding Extensions (touchscreens and door stations). To set up extensions:
  1. Click on Users and select “Extensions Management” – the Choose Extensions Length page will appear,      similar to below.  Make the desired changes and click on Save.  Note:  For purposes of demonstration, we:

a.      Bulleted Change Length.

b.     Set Extension Length to 4

c.      Set Extension Prefix to 60.

         2.    A “Choose Extensions Length WARNING” will display – click on Yes.  This will cause the Epygi to reboot.
               
               
               
         3.   After the reboot has completed (info LED on Epygi solid green), login again and go back to Users>>Extensions Management.
         
         4.  Check the boxes for the extensions you will be using and then click on Edit.
               
               
         5.  Click on “Codec Settings”.
         
               
         6.  Check the “Select to modify fields” box, as well as G.711u, G711a, G.729a, and H.264 boxes, and then click on Save – this will bring you back to the Extensions Management page.
