Determine when phone is logged-in

Our phones are Anatel Model #9608.  They are connected to our network with one Cat5 cable and connected directly to the back of the computer with another one.  We are restricted from installing software, but I would still like to know when my users are logged-in on their phones.  Is there any way to do this without installing anything?

If I could do this, I might be able to display a message to the end user lettting them know whether they were logged-in, or not.

The documentation says it works with "only" IE 8. Is that the version you have? You may be able to get it to display in a later version of IE if you turn on compatibility mode.

Also, take a screencap of the error message and post it here. You can use the snipping tool built into Windows 7.

What software is the "computer" running -- If it's the proprietary Avaya IPBX then you need to contact your Avaya supplier / dealer.

If it's Avaya, then there's a web manager for it that doesn't require any software to be installed:

You're going to need an account to log into it though.

Marsilies, thank you.  The document you presented suggests the following format for locating the web console.  In the 'Network Information' menu on an individual phone, I found an IP address for 'phone' and one for 'call server'.  Replacing the following recommended format with either, and using the port number or not, I get the message the Internet explorer cannot display the web page.
