Phone Tips and Tricks: Browser Based Maintenance on NEC Phone System

Collaboration_23Browser based maintenance is one of the best features of a modern business phone system. If you have an NEC IPK2 or newer system, this feature is available to you with NEC’s Web Pro. Below we review some of the most basic features of this program.

Web Pro for the NEC SV8100 and IPK2

To start the program:

  • Open Internet explorer (Web pro does not work properly with Chrome)
  • In the web address field enter the IP address of the phone system
  • Enter your user name then password. Both the user name and password are case sensitive.
  • Default user name: ADMIN1
  • Default password: 0000 (four zero’s)

If you are unable to log in:
