**Setup for the MT505 Spider conference phone does require a computer on the same network as the MT505 to access the web configuration portal.


  • Power on and connect the MT505 to your network using the "Ethernet" port. 
    • When plugging in the phone, you can also record the MAC address that will be used later during configuration.   This will be found on the bottom of the phone above the Serial Number.
  • Once fully powered on, retrieve the IP address that will be used to access the web configuration portal.
    • Press the Gear Button found on the left side of the dialpad.  ** The screen will turn off the backlight after a short time. If no buttons are visible, press anywhere on the dialpad to activate the backlight.
    • Scroll up once to the "Information" option and press the Gear button again, or press 7.
    • Record the IP Address.  This will generally be in the 192.168.x.x \ 10.x.x.x ranges.
  • Open a web browser on a computer connected to the same network and navigate to the IP address you retrieved from the MT505.
  • The default username and password are: admin \ 1234
  • Once logged in, Press the Management button to access the configuration menu.
  • Open the Automatic Update folder, and select Automatic Updates.
  • A new menu will appear on the right where we will be entering the configuration information:
    • Provisioning Method: Static URL
    • Firmware URL: http://p.fluentcloud.com/MT505.img
    • Configuration URL: http://p.fluentcloud.com/MAC.cfg
      • The "MAC" in the Configuration URL is unique to your phone, and is the MAC address recorded earlier, but lowercase, and without the colons.
      • If your MAC address is 00:05:C2:AB:CD:01, your Configuration URL will be: http://p.fluentcloud.com/0005c2abcd01.cfg
      • If you do not have physical access to the phone, the MAC address can be found under: Status & Diagnostics, System Status, Network Status.
  • Press the Submit button to save your changes, then press the Check Now button next to the Configuration URL.
  • If the configuration is successful, you will be prompted to confirm the update. Once confirmed, the phone will reboot automatically.
