    Well, that depends. At $work we have ip phones that talk to an asterisk server, and that server stores usernames and passwords in a postgresql database. So changing username and password is a simple matter of using DBI and DBD::Pg.

    If your setup is different, it might be worth looking in the phone's documentation what protocols it can talk, and then look on CPAN for modules that help you with those protocols.

      Well, I know my phone is using sip protocol, and I found the Net::SIP, but how to change settings with this package? This package contains API for this work, because I can't it found.
        The IP phones I have dealt with use DHCP to acquire configuration info over the network.

        So, as moritz has indicated, the right place to modify configuration is at the server that sends out the configuration info.

                     Most people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
                Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
