Post by: Redw00d on August 10, 2018, 10:08:26 am
now that I have my obi202 and obi11- working as wanted, thanks to drgeoff,

 How can I backup/save my settings please?  (I did try to search)

Your settings are currently held on the Obitalk portal.

You can make a backup by using the local web server on each device.  Point a browser at the IP address of the particular OBi on your LAN.  Login with admin and admin (unless you changed the password).  Click on System Management. Click on Device Update.

Note:  Backups do NOT contain passwords.  A restore will not be sufficient to get your services working again.

The discovery of all those pages and their menu options, most of which appear to be the same as available on the portal, might come as a surprise.  Do NOT be tempted to make future configuration changes using that local method.  It is quite safe to look at settings there.  In fact it is the only place to see Call History (under Status).  But any configuration changes you make there will soon be overwritten with the values held on the portal.
