Reenable web interface on Polycom VBP 5300 ST from CLI

After some configuration changes I’ve stuck with VBP not listening nor on HTTP, nor on SSH port. Last resort was to use CLI to reenable HTTP access. Connect with parameters:
Baud rate: 9600
Parity: none
Bits: 8
Stopbits: 1
Flow control: none

Then in login prompt you have to use login credentials (yes – they’re the same on every box (WTF?)):
User: – root
Pass: – @#$%^&*!()
Password is shift + 2345678190 – there is 1 before 9!

After logging on, there are three commands that should reenable HTTP access:


Works for me
