3 - Configure your Softphone

Download your softphone. For example, we will use x-lite desktop softphone. You can download for free here http://www.counterpath.com/x-lite

There are three preset fields (Username, Password and Server) that must be entered into your softphone's SIP account configuration in order to complete the communications between your softphone and PBX Phone System. These fields are easily copied from PBX Phone System to your softphone by clicking on the required field on the PBX Phone System configuration screen to copy the text to a clipboard, and then pasting that information to the appropriate field in your softphone settings. An example of a SIP configuration for an X-Lite softphone is shown below. Note that the configuration fields for the softphone may not have the same naming scheme as that of PBX Phone System. For example, the field Server in PBX Phone System is named Domain in X-Lite. If you have problems connecting, use this IP: 46.19.208.89 instead of host address: XXXXX.XXXXXX.sip.pbxww.com

PBXww_U_G_Softphone_Config_1.jpg

Once this configuration process has been completed, your softphone will be connected to your PBX Phone System system.

NOTE: The Voip device should now be green as shown on the below image. This indicates that your softphone is connected to your PBX phone system account.
