The Grandstream BudgeTone 100 VOIP and GX2000 telephones are telephones
that do VOIP, from a company called Grandstream.
The company's java configuration tool (which creates tftp files)
is available at http://www.grandstream.com/y-configurationtool.htm;
the company's firmware download page is at
GsUtil is a short program I wrote to dump and restore the data
from these phones. Since a reboot is required to make the
configuration change effective, this program does that too.
It's written in Perl, tested on Fedora Core 4, and provided as
tarball and rpm files. Only perl and perl-libwww-perl were
used, and they came with the operating system, so you probably
won't have to download any perl modules.
Version 1.x was done for the 184.108.40.206 firmware, and
Version 2.x is for the current 220.127.116.11 firmware on the GXP2000,
and 18.104.22.168 on the BT-101.
Version 3.x is for the same firmware, but it's been rewritten
almost from scratch: cut-and-paste helped.
Version 3.1 of GSutil, a GrandStream BudgeTone phone backup, restore
and reboot utility. Written by Charles Howes (email@example.com).
Usage: gsutil -[b|d|e|h|r] [-w] [-n] [-o] [-p password] address..
-b : reboot
-d : dump to stdout
-e : show phone firmware versions
-r : restore from stdin
-w : wait for device to be free (moves busy devices to end of list)
-n : don't wait for reboot to finish
-o : don't translate configuration values
-p : password (default: admin)
-h, --help : print this help
--version : print the version of gsutil
gsutil -d 10.10.13.5 > phone1.conf - dump configuration
gsutil -do 10.10.13.5 > phone1.conf - dump in GS compatible style
gsutil -r 10.10.13.5 < phone1.conf - restore configuration
gsutil -b 10.10.13.5 - reboot phone and wait for it
gsutil -bn 10.10.13.5 - reboot phone and don't wait
gsutil -e 10.10.13.5 - show firmware version number
gsutil -deboner -p admin 10.10.13.5 < new.conf > old.conf
- everything at once
gsutil -d 10.10.13.2 10.10.13.3 10.10.13.4 > out.conf - dump phones
gsutil -r 10.10.13.2 10.10.13.3 10.10.13.4 < in.conf - restore phones
gsutil -bn 10.10.13.2 10.10.13.3 10.10.13.4 - boot phones
More than one phone can be specified at once; the configurations are
appended when dumping, and separated when restoring.
The default password for gsutil is the default password for
the phones: 'admin'.
Only the settings listed in the input file will be changed on the phone.
This allows you to change a single setting on all of your phones at
once without having to download, edit and upload each phone's
settings. Make a configuration file containing only the parameter
to change, and use that as input:
gsutil -rbn 10.10.13.2 < input
gsutil -rbn 10.10.13.3 < input
Note: if restoring multiple phones at once, the command line ip
addresses should be in the same order as they were when they were
dumped, or else the configurations will go to different phones.
This may be desirable, or it might upset your users when
their phone number and voicemail get assigned to someone
else's phone. You have been warned... :-)
