The cnPilot Home & Small Business router with VoIP is a managed device (that yet has the ability to act as
a stand-alone router if desired). In addition to WiFi, this product provides high quality voice calls as well as
the optional ability to power Cambiums ePMP series subscriber module or the PMP450 series subscriber
module by supporting Cambiums (Canopy) PoE. For voice calls, the product is fully compatible with the
SIP industry standard and is able to interoperate with many other SIP devices and software on the market.

1. Telnet is disabled from the WAN IP as well as from the LAN IP.
2. Downgrade from 4.2.3 to a lower version is not allowed as it checks for
signed certificate.

For more information on cnMaestro documentation, see

Configuring cnMaestro URL

To configure cnMaestro URL:

1. Navigate to Administrator > cnMaestro tab.

2. Enter static URL in the cnMaestro URL field.

you administer the DHCP Server, you can also configure DHCP Options that will tell the devices how to
access the cnMaestro (so the URL does not need to be set on each device). Cambium devices support DHCP
Options 43 and 15 for setting the cnMaestro On-Premises URL.

The priority order for determining the cnMaestro URL is the following:

1. Static URL manually set through the Device UI.

3. DHCP Option 15
4. Default Cambium Cloud URL (
