NetVanta Unified Communications Technical Note ___________________________________________________________________________________ Configuring the CounterPath X-Lite SIP Softphone Introduction CounterPath X-Lite is a free Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)-based softphone that is interoperable with NetVanta Unified Communications products. X-Lite is not automatically detected or configured by the NetVanta Enterprise Communications Server, and therefore requires manual configuration for use with the UC server. This technical note describes the steps to configure the X-Lite client for use with the UC server. 1 Configuring the Softphone Gathering Information To configure X-Lite, you need the following information: Name Equivalent to the name of the identity you want to associate with X-Lite. User Name The SIP authentication identifier associated with the above identity. This is required by any SIP endpoint to register with the SIP private branch exchange (PBX). Password The SIP authentication password associated with the above identity. This is typically (but not always) the same value as your voicemail access PIN. Determining the Authentication ID and Password as the User (that owns the identity) 1. Launch the UC client. 2. Log in as the user you want to associate to the phone. 3. Take note of the identity name located in the Identities pane at bottom left portion of the menu (User One in this example). 4. In the Identities pane, select the icon on the right to reveal the drop-down list, and select SIP Authentication. 5. Record the User/login name and Password from the SIP Authentication dialog box. You will need them later when you configure the phone. 2 Determining the Authentication ID and Password as the Administrator 1. Launch the UC client. 2. Log in as the admin user. 3. Select the Identities icon located in the Administration Navigation pane. 4. From the menu bar, select View > Display Identities for all Profiles. 5. Find the identity in the list that you want to use and double-click the entry. 6. In the Identity dialog box, select SIP Authentication. 3 7. Record the User/login name and Password from the SIP Authentication dialog box. You will need them later when you configure the phone. 4 Adding a SIP Account The figure below shows the CounterPath X-Lite client when it is run for the first time. In order to use the X-Lite client with the UC server, you must add a SIP account. Adding a SIP Account 1. Right-click anywhere on the X-Lite client and select SIP Account Settings. The following menu will appear: 5 2. Select the Add button to reveal the Properties menu. 3. In the Display Name field, enter your name as you would like others to see it. For example, User One. 4. In the User name field, enter your identity (extension) number. For example, 1001. 5. In the Password field, enter the password associated with your identity. For example, 1001. NOTE: Contact your system administrator for your password. 6. In the Authorization user name field, enter the user name associated with your identity. For example, 1001. 7. In the Domain field, enter the IP address or domain naming system (DNS) name for the UC server. For example, 192.168.8.5 or ucserver.company.com. 8. Make sure that the Register with domain and receive incoming calls box is checked. 9. In the Send outbound via section, make sure that the target domain option is selected. 6 10. Select OK to reveal the SIP Accounts menu. 11. Select Close to complete the registration. The X-Lite client will attempt to register with the UC server. If all of the parameters are entered correctly, the text in the main window will appear as follows: You are now ready to place and receive calls. 7 Configuring Audio The CounterPath X-Lite client will automatically detect any available sound devices and will select the default sound device as specified by the Windows® Operating System. In order to verify that you are using the correct sound device, or if you have a headset that you would like to use instead, complete the following steps: 1. Right-click anywhere on the X-Lite window and select Options to reveal the Options menu. 8 2. Select Devices on the left-hand side of the Options menu. 3.
