Cisco SPA Configuration Guide

This article describes the configuration of most Cisco phones of SPA (e.g. 303 and 504). The only difference would be the lack of some features or some extra features that don’t affect registration.

NOTE: the Cisco SPA303 supports up to 3 calls. The SPA303 does NOT support PoE.

Accessing the phone's Web User Interface

  • Find the phone IP by navigating to Setup key > Network. Or, pull the IP address of the phone by using network scanning software like Netscan (Windows) or Angry IP scanner (Mac).
  • Enter the phone's IP address in your web browser.
  • The default username and password are both admin.

Verify the Firmware Version

The software version can be found under the Info tab, Product Information. The Minimum firmware for the Cisco SPA303 and SPA504G is 7.4.6

  • Customers will need to reach out to Cisco or visit Cisco’s website for information on how to upgrade the firmware if it is not on at least 7.4.6 3.

Admin panel and tabs configuration

Click on Admin Login > Advanced in the upper right corner. Make sure you see the tabs below. If you miss some of them, it means that you didn’t access the interface as an Admin.

System tab

NOTE: Submit All Changes button below should only be clicked once all the changes are done under all the necessary steps.

  • Resync Periodic: 0

Phone tab

This tab has Ext specific information for Voicemail and line Keys. This is not necessary and absolutely customizable. Please follow the screenshot to see how it can be configured.

Make sure to enter the following string into PSK 1: fnc=sd;ext=9000@$PROXY;vid=2;nme=park 8.

Credentials in Web Panel

Subscriber User ID: Unique ID located in WebPanel under you user forwarding options

Auth ID Unique: Unique ID located in WebPanel under you user forwarding options

SIP Password: Unique alpha-numeric password located in WebPanel under you user forwarding options

Proxy and Registration/ Proxy: mightycall server

Proxy and Registration / Outbound Proxy: mightycall server

Please note that the screenshot below is only for visual representation and does not contain the right information.

NOTE: by default, you can set SIP Port to 16060. Yet in some cases, the SIP Port will need to be 5xxx (xxx will be the Extension number for this phone). In the example above you will find Ext 345 is using SIP Port: 5345. If you do not configure this correctly it will cause audio issues or inbound call failure issues.

Dial plan String: (011xxx.|1[2-9]xx[2-9]xxxxxx|[2-9]xx[2-9]xxxxxx|[2-9]xxxxxx|*xx.|[2-9]11S0|1[01]x|9xxx

Once all of the above information has been entered in, it should look similar to this, then click Submit All Changes.

After all these settings are good, the configuration is done. The phone will restart itself. Do not unplug the phone from the power while it's restarting. The phone may restart several times – do not interrupt this process.
