Toshiba IPT with Cisco DHCP

***UPDATE***

Option 43 works great with the Toshiba IPEdge system.  The good news for CIX owners with IP phones is that it works there too!  Attached is a sheet from Toshiba that tells you how to setup the option.  I don’t know why Toshiba protects this the way they do, as I would think it would show they want to integrate with multiple vendors.  This came from my Toshiba vendor:

Toshiba IPT Auto Config

 

I’m currently setting up a brand new network that will have a Toshiba IPEdge VoIP system and besides in the Cisco Wireless arena, I haven’t had a chance to use DHCP option 43 on anything until now.  Toshiba’s option 43 configuration is pretty much the same as others, but Toshiba has done a fantastic job of keeping any configuration examples off the Internet.  Here is where I will pick up with it on Monday:

 

010F544F534849424120495065646765000204AC10010A030101040132050100060133

 

My DHCP config will look something like this:

 

ip dhcp excluded-address 192.168.0.1 192.168.0.50

ip dhcp pool PHONES

network 192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0

domain-name myvoicelan.mydomain.lan

default-router 192.168.1.1

lease 7

option 43 hex 010F.544F.5348.4942.4120.4950.6564.6765.0002.04AC.1001.0A03.0101.0401.3205.0100.0601.33ff

 

My port config will look something like this:

 

int gi0/15

description **DATA & VOICE PORT**

switchport host

switchport access vlan 10

switchport voice vlan 20

duplex full

 

We’ll see if it works!  Of course, I didn’t use real IP and VLAN info here, but I think this has the best chance of working.  Will update after I give it a shot!
