It is possible to install a separate addon for Snom phones called ‘Snomdir’ which allows access to the central Phone book on the pbx. It also provides a search function. Send a message via our contact page to acquire access.

Function Key configuration

After installing an addon you need to edit Function Key Directory value. On Snom phones it is possible to edit this in the Snom management webinterface of the phone. To do so, point your browser to the phone’s IP address.

If you have used earlier versions, please note that the URL for snomdir has changed to /services/snomdir/ instead of /lsp/xad/snomdir/. You should therefore use https://pbxip:442/services/snomdir/snomdir or https://pbxip/services/snomdir/snomdir or http://pbxip/services/snomdir/snomdir (it will be redirected automatically). If the phone is properly provisioned it already has a PBX certificate. If not, you need to download this and install it in the phone manually.

These phones are equal to Snom 320 and 360 types.
