Navigating the System

You can navigate the system using the system web interface.

Access the System Web Interface

Access the system web interface to perform administrative tasks.

The system web interface enables you to do the following actions:

  • Finish setting up your system.
  • Remotely configure and manage your system. Unlike the local interface, you can configure every setting through the system web interface.
  • Control certain user functions of the system (such as placing calls and ending content sessions).
  • Manage contacts.

Procedure

  1. Open a web browser and enter the system IP address.
    When setting up your system, the onscreen instructions display the IP address to use.
  2. Enter the user name (the default is admin).
  3. Enter the password (the default is the last six characters of your system’s serial number).

Place a Call from the System Web Interface

The system web interface gives you many of the same calling features and controls that are in the local interface.

You can also place video and audio-only calls directly from the Dashboard.
Note: You can’t make calls from the system web interface when Poly Device Mode is enabled.

Procedure

  1. In the system web interface, go to Place a Call.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Select Dial to manually dial a number or name.
    • Select Contacts to search local and directory contacts to call.
    • Select Favorites to search contacts marked as Favorites.
    • Select Recent to select a number or name you’ve called in the past.

End a Content Session from the System Web Interface

When you end a sharing session, the system stops live content and deletes blackboards and whiteboards.

Procedure

  1. In the system web interface, go to Active Session.
  2. Select End Session .
A message displays informing you that the session is ending.
