FCDC-3 - Software Upgrade Procedure

From Zenitel Wiki

This article describes how to upgrade the software in Flowire device FCDC-3.

For upgrade procedure for FCDC-1 or FCDC-2, see here.

The upgrade can be done from the web interface of the Flowire unit.

Upgrading from the Web Interface

The Flowire unit are automatically assigned an IP address from the network if there is a DHCP server present. If there is no DHCP server on the network, the Flowire units will by default have a static IP address In this case there will be multiple Flowire units with the same IP address on the network, and you need to isolate the Flowire unit which is going to be upgraded from the others in the network.

If same static IP on all Flowire units, isolate each unit before upgrade

Although it is not necessary for the Flowire to perform its function, it is good practice to change the static IP to something unique at the same time, for easier maintenance in the future.

  • Download the latest software package (e.g. "") from the download site.
  • Unzip the files to a folder.
  • Use a standard web browser and enter the IP address of the Flowire (e.g. in the address field. Default username/password: admin/alphaadmin
