DO NOT do this unless you have specifically been advised to. This will render your phone inoperable until the reconfiguration is completed. This is NOT a normal basic troubleshooting step.
This applies to current Grandstream models such as the GXP2130, GXP2140, and GXP2160. For older models such as the GXP2100, GXP2124, or GXP2120, please see this document: https://initiatel.freshdesk.com/solution/articles/11000032130-factory-reset-configure-grandstream-phones-and-devices-older-models-
If you are setting up a brand new phone out of the box, you can skip the factory reset section. If there is any chance the phone was previously configured, you must do the reset.
Once the phone reboots, press the up-arrow button to show the IP address. Log into the phone on any web browser by typing the IP address into the URL bar. The password and username are both "admin" (some phones may not ask for a username). On newer phones, you will be asked to set a new password. We recommend "admin1" just to be easy to remember.
Click on the "Maintenance" option near the top right then "Upgrade and Provisioning."
Copy and paste this information into the "Config Server Path" field: config.initiatel.com/configs
Make sure the "Config Upgrade via" setting is HTTP, not HTTPS.
No other settings need to be changed. Click the "save and apply" button at the bottom of the page. In a few seconds, the phone should reboot, acquire its settings, and reboot again. This can take up to ten minutes to complete.
