So you might want to start without configurations from DHCP. Enter the
file/http server in the phone manually and point it to a http server
containing the needed firmware files and a correct 46xxsettings.txt for
you asterisk.

Avaya uses other dhcp options for these phone (242):

BTW these phones are a terrible waste when used with Asterisk. They only
provided minimal functionality (calls and transfer).
