2 -Press the Settings button on the telephone.
3 -Press 2 on the keypad to select Network Configuration.

5 -If option 24, Alternate TFTP, is set to No, go to step 6. If it is set to Yes, go to step 7.
6 -Press * * # and then set to Yes. Do not press the Save soft key.
7 -Press 8 on the keypad to select TFTP Server 1.
