Please note that...
this firmware can only be used with the following SwyxWare versions:

This firmware prepares the migration path to a future firmware version (V3 Rx.x.x) that exclusively supports a new communication protocol, that is incompatible with former SwyxWare versions, backwards from SwyxWare 2013 R3 on. This new firmware version supports both communication protocols (new and old) and can be used with all SwyxWare versions since SwyxWare 7.0 with Quickfix 6.

Hereby the SwyxServer will contact the Swyx FTP server (ftp.swyx.com) which is configured by default and downloads the latest firmware version.
After this you could validate that the new firmware was download by checking the firmware version information:
If the firmware version (V2 R1.5.0) is listed for all SwyxPhones L6xx, the phones of this type will prompt for a firmware upgrade the next time the user logs on.
