By default, the Allworx phone system ships with a DHCP server enabled. The Allworx phone system can be configured to disable DHCP if you have another router handing out IP addresses.
To disable the DHCP server, you’ll need to:
- Log into your phone system’s admin panel
- Navigate to Servers > DHCP Server
Here you’ll see your active leases as well as known hosts on your currently active DHCP server.
- Click the modify key under ‘Action’
This is where you’ll be able to disable your DHCP server.
Additionally, you can specify the dynamic address range of addresses your Allworx system gives out to lease. Your DHCP address reservations can also be configured and managed from this page.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to restart your system after updating these settings in order for your changes to take affect!
