At the end of this class the user would be able to use the NBX utility, which is
another tool that can help us to administrate our telephone system.

The NBX NetSet administration utility has two interfaces:
   1. Administrator — Your administrator logs in with a special password and
      uses the NBX NetSet utility to manage and configure system-wide telephone
      settings and many of the settings for your telephone.
   2. User — As a telephone user, you log in to the NBX NetSet utility with your
      own system ID (your extension) and password to:
          1. View and change your telephone’s personal settings, such as speed
             dials, ringer tone, and specify where you want your calls to go when
             you cannot answer them (your call coverage point).
          2. Listen to and delete your voice messages from your computer as an
             alternative to managing calls on your telephone.
          3. View your call permissions, certain current feature settings, and the
             internal user directory to call other users on your system.
          4. Log in to and out of one or all hunt groups and calling groups of which
             your telephone is a member.

To use the NBX NetSet utility, you need a computer that is connected to your local
area network (LAN) and that has a web browser. (You do not need Internet access.)
To start the NBX NetSet utility:
   1. Enter the IP address ( in the Address field, and then
      press Enter on your keyboard. The NBX NetSet login screen appears.

         Information Technology

2. Click User to log in as a user. The password dialog box appears.

3. Type your NBX NetSet user identification (always your 3-digit or 4-digit
   telephone extension) and your NBX NetSet password (which is the same as
   the password to access your voicemail), and then click OK.

Once we type the user name and password we will access the NBX NetSet
utility. The first screen we will see is the User Information and it will show if we
have voice mail messages. This is the first of 5 tabs and each one contains
important information that will see in this guide.

Call Permissions
My Calling Privileges > Call Permissions

This window shows the types of calls and features that are allowed on your
telephone, including different permissions for day (business hours) and night (after
business hours). The administrator can change these settings.
Open, Closed, Lunch, and Other describe at which times of day you may make
particular types of calls. For example, you may be permitted to make long-distance
calls during normal business hours (Open), but not during lunchtime (Lunch) or on
weekends (Closed).

Call Forward
Call Forward > Call Forward

How many times do you want your phone to ring before the call is forwarded? Where
do you want calls to go when you cannot answer your phone? To set your
preferences, use the Call Forward screen:

   1. Select how many times you want your phone to ring before calls are
      forwarded. The default is 4, but you may want to set a lower number to avoid
      disturbing coworkers when you are not at your desk or a higher number if you
      sometimes answer from a short walk away and typically need more time to
      get to the phone.

   2. Select the call coverage point that you want: Voice Mail, Auto Attendant,
      Phone Number or Disconnect.
          The default setting sends your unanswered calls to Voice Mail.
          When you want unanswered calls to go to the Auto Attendant, specify
            which attendant from the drop-down list. By default, the system
            includes these choices: the Default Menu, for incoming call coverage,
            and the VoiceMail AutoAttendant, for employee access to voice
          When you want the system to forward unanswered calls to a Phone
            Number, enter the phone number in the Phone Number field. Do not
            use parentheses, hyphens, or spaces. For external calls, enter a 9 or 8
            or any other digit that you use to access an outside line. Example:
            92815551212 dials (281) 555-1212. The telephone number that you
            specify may be limited by your call permissions. For example, you may
            be allowed to forward calls only to toll-free telephone numbers or only
            to internal extensions.
          When you want the system to Disconnect (no coverage) unanswered
            calls, the caller is disconnected after the telephone rings the specified
            number of times. This setting may be appropriate for a telephone that
            is located in a conference room.

   3. Click OK.

   4. Notes
    If you change the default setting to something other than voice mail, all of
      your calls are forwarded to the new location when you are not available to
      answer your telephone. Callers are unable to reach your voice mailbox unless
      forwarded to it by another user through a Direct Mail Transfer.

         Information Technology

   You can answer your call on another telephone by using the Directed Pickup
    feature. The other telephone and your telephone must be part of the same
    pickup group, or your telephone group must allow nonmember pickup

Feature Settings
My Calling Privileges > Feature Settings

You and your administrator can view the current status (On or Off) of these feature
codes for your telephone. Here are some listed:
    Caller ID Restriction (CLIR all calls) - When you use Feature Code 889, you
      prevent the NBX system from sending out caller ID information when you
      make calls. This feature remains in effect until you cancel it by using Feature
      Code 889 again.
    Do Not Disturb - When you use Feature Code 446 on your telephone, you
      activate the Do Not Disturb feature. This feature stays in effect until you
      cancel it by using Feature Code 446 again.
    Forward All Calls to VM - When you use Feature Code 440, you instruct the
      NBX system to forward all calls directly to your voice mailbox. This feature
      stays in effect until you cancel it by using Feature Code 440 again.
    Lock/Unlock Telephone - When you use Feature Code 432, you lock your
      telephone and prevent others from dialing unauthorized calls from it. This
      feature stays in effect until you cancel it by using Feature Code 432 again. In
      the display panel on an NBX Business Telephone or an NBX Basic
      Telephone, a padlock icon appears when the telephone is locked.
