This article describes the configuration of Cisco SPA adapters with the Cisco SPA112 taken as an example.
Accessing the web interface
• Connect the adapter to the network and find the IP address using Netscan.
• If the IP address of the SPA112 is unknown, lift the handset and dial ****, followed by 110# after the prompt. The IP address will be voiced to the user.
• The default username and password should both be admin.
NOTE: if entering the adapter's IP address does not provide you with a web GUI, the adapter most likely has its web interface disabled, and must be logged into via the LAN port on the back of the adapter to have remote administration enabled
Once logged into the SPA112, select the Quick setup tab in the top left corner.
Proxy: SIP domain from the WebPanel
Display name: any, as it will only appear on calls that terminate to other Mightycall customers
User ID: found in the WebPanel
Password: found in the WebPanel
Click Submit in the lower-left corner of the SPA112 admin UI when done.
Once the equipment is done saving the configuration, select the Voice tab at the top of the interface. Line 1 should now show as Registered.

The SPA-112 has several star codes available. Several have been tested and have been documented below.
Bonus: Call transfer
Call transfer can be a challenge when it comes to analogue phones. Since it is not as obvious as with the SIP phones, here is a small guide on how to transfer a call if using an analog phone with an adapter:
Have a call already established
Press the flash key on the phone
User should now hear a dial tone
Dial the number you wish to transfer to
Once the call connects, the user may announce the transfer to the destination party
Pressing flash again will join the two calls, allowing all three parties to speak as if conferenced
The user may now hang up to complete the transfer
