Z/IP ONE Software v5.0.0r Update Instructions and Release Notess

Updated 1 month ago by Bryan Shay

To update your Z/IP ONE to the latest version of software, you will need a computer with a web browser on the same network as your Z/IP ONE’s LAN port. You will also need a Z/IP ONE partition update package.

To update your Z/IP ONE, first navigate to its internal webpage using your web browser. Simply put its IP address in the location bar of your browser. Log in if prompted.

You will see a screen with some information about the Z/IP ONE’s current status. On the left is a list of other pages available. Click Software Management. If you were not prompted to log in before, you will have to now.

The Z/IP ONE can hold two ‘banks’ of software. This way, you can try a new version without committing to it, and always have your previous version available. You can run out of the primary or secondary bank of software at any time. New software, however, can only be uploaded to the secondary bank. If you are currently running out of the secondary bank, you have two options:

  1. Reboot to the software in the primary bank, to preserve the primary bank and replace the version in the secondary bank. To choose this option, use the ‘Reboot Unit’ menu to select the primary bank, then click the “Reboot into selected bank” button. The Z/IP ONE will reboot. Reconnect to the webpage, and you will be ready to proceed with the software update.
  2. Replace the software in the primary bank with the secondary bank. This will discard the version currently there, then make the current bank the primary. You can then upload software in the now‐empty secondary bank. To choose this option, select the checkbox that says “Commit this software to Bank 1” and click the “Apply” button. You will then be ready to proceed with the software update – the unit will not reboot.

If you were already running out of Bank 1, or if you completed option 1 or two, above, the Software Management webpage will have an option to browse to and select a software update package. Click the Choose File button, and browse to the updater. When you are ready, click the Apply button.

You will be taken to an update progress screen. This update should take a few minutes, during which progress will occasionally update. It is very important not to shut the Z/IP ONE off during this time! When the update is done, you will see a link to return to the Software Management page. The update is now in the secondary bank.

The Z/IP ONE will not automatically reboot into the new software. To do so, select the Secondary Bank option in the Reboot Unit box. Click “Reboot into selected bank.” The Z/IP ONE will reboot into the new software, and your browser will reconnect to the webpage in 90 seconds.

1.7.0r June 2013

Introducing Reciprocal RTP and Luci® Live Light support*

  • New RTP port options:
    • The base RTP (default 9150) receive port works as it always has: Receive a stream and decode it.
    • Receiving an RTP stream on the next port up next port up (e.g. 9151) will cause the Z/IP ONE to automatically respond with its own RTP stream, sending G.722 audio.
      • Receiving a stream on the second port up (e.g. 9152) will cause the Z/IP ONE to respond with an RTP stream of the same type as what is received. (e.g. if you receive a Layer 2 RTP stream, the Z/IP ONE will respond to the sender with its own Layer 2 RTP stream)
      • Finally, an RTP stream on the third port up from the base (e.g. 9153) will cause the Z/IP ONE to respond with a stream containing the default codec as set in the Setup‐>Audio Codec menu
    • The base port is user definable on the Setup‐>Network screen, and defaults to 9150.
    • The ports with automatic return are disabled by default. Enable them on the

Setup‐>Network screen or the Network web page

1.5.0r June 2012

Important Note:

Some early Z/IP ONEs were accidentally shipped without a MAC address assigned for their WAN Ethernet port. The WAN is still usable because the system automatically provides a randomly‐ generated, local‐use‐only, valid MAC address for that port. However, it will be a different address each time the unit boots, which can cause problems with MAC filtering on switches and NATs, and new IP addresses to be assigned by DHCP servers.

This problem is not new as of version 1.5.0r, but if your Z/IP ONE is affected by this, all versions of software version 1.5.0r or later will inform you on boot to contact Customer Support. They will give you an easy procedure, using the web page, to assign a proper MAC address. In the mean time, the Z/IP ONE’s WAN port is usable. However, be aware of the above limitations.

Livewire improvements:

  • Reduced processor load when using Livewire input
  • Livewire backfeeds displayed properly on front panel and webpage
  • Livewire source selection from front panel UI is more reliable.
  • Livewire now usable with LAN interface set to use DHCP

  • Smoother ACT buffer management
  • Resolved unexpected ACT activity following back‐to‐back calls with drastically different bitrate and buffer settings
  • Additional NAT traversal techniques
  • Corrected an issue which resulted in MPEG Layer 2 RTP streams having a nonstandard format
  • Added an option to use RTP payload type 14 for Layer 2 streams (Z/IP ONE defaults to 96)
  • SIP compatibility tested and expanded with numerous public and private SIP solutions
  • Rcv Lock light no longer blinks when a frame is concealed
  • Improved reliability of buffer and quality meters
  • RTP push‐mode streams will be restart following reboot if redial is enabled
  • Direct‐dialed TSCP connection with default port setting completes without ZIP server access

Streamlined UI

  • Front panel UI is more responsive to input, with faster meters
  • ZIP server browsing is more intuitive
  • ESC from main menu goes to last‐selected status page (and vice versa)
  • A “manual dial” dialog can now be accessed via the CONN button
    The ‘history list’ that used to be on the CONN button is now on the main menu circle
    Items in the history list – including those manually dialed – can be added to the phonebook
  • Dialing from the history list now takes you to the status display, just as dialing from the CONN or AUTO buttons does
  • Direction of audio connection is clarified on call type menu selections
  • The ‘public’ group is always listed first when browsing the ZIP server
  • Long lists such as the group and device directories can be browsed faster by using the keypad to jump to letters in the list (for example, key 5 (JKL) will jump to J in the list)
  • Last dialed buddy remains selected on Autodial page even as other buddies change status
  • All menus scroll in the same order
  • Front panel interface is usable sooner following boot
  • Many minor graphical glitches erased

Automatic Redial

  • A dialing Z/IP ONE can be set to redial RTP connections (one or multiple) in case of power loss or reboot while streaming

WiFi changes

  • Visible SSIDs and signal strength can be viewed from the WiFi network setup menu
  • Pop‐up boxes informing of WiFi setup progress clear when WiFi device is successfully configured

UMTS changes

  • Update UMTS/EVDO country list
  • Added setup entry for “Orange” network provider

‘Router’ mode

  • The Z/IP ONE can act as a router between the streaming interface and the LAN interface.
    • Use this to share a network with another device when only one connection is available
    • Connect a laptop to the Z/IP ONE in router mode to authenticate on public networks which require a webpage login (hotels, coffee shops, etc.)

Contact closure improvements

  • Contact closures are scanned more frequently, and end‐to‐end closures are more in sync with associated audio
    • Added ‘panic dial’ of buddies via contact closure
    • Added support for Livewire GPIO. The Z/IP ONE uses two GPIO ports, corresponding to the upper and lower four bits of the physical parallel port. The lowest four bits of each Livewire GPIO channel are used.
    • Live parallel port I/O status is viewable on the front panel’s parallel port setup menu
    • Fixed issue which could prevent contact closure settings selected via frontpanel from being applied
    • Parallel port numbering scheme now matches between front panel and web interfaces
    • Contact closures are cleared when the Z1 reboots with a connection active

End‐to‐End RS‐232

  • End‐to‐end data transmission of ASCII or binary RS‐232 data at 9600 bps is now supported using the provided PL‐2303‐based USB to serial converters

    Autodial java applet does not request login details again
    Front panel and web interface settings and actions brought in line with each other

Enhanced Troubleshooting

  • Network setup:

Some Z/IP ONEs have no permanent MAC address assigned for the WAN port. This results in a valid, but random, MAC being assigned on each boot. The MAC for this port can be set permanently, and affected units will now show a pop‐up message directing the user to contact Telos Customer Support for instructions

  • A ‘setup wizard’ is now available to guide you through first time setup
  • Expanded status pages to provide more network information and call progress information.
  • Status pages display an error if invalid network settings are detected
  • The status webpage now also provides network interface information
  • Basic status on homepage no longer requires login to view
  • DHCP client continues to attempt to set up network interfaces forever in absence of a network or a DHCP server on that network
  • DHCP client always tries to renew IP address after a link failure event
  • Corrected an issue that could cause the WiFi gateway to be reported incorrectly

UI ‘pop‐up’ window changes:

  • Knob presses clear pop‐up boxes, in addition to ESC key
  • A limited number of pop‐up boxes will stack so that messages are not missed
  • Pop‐up boxes are cleared on receipt of a successful incoming call
