In this tutorial, we will configure a Snom handset, to a SIP device assigned to a user inside PBX.
Snom devices are used as an example, as they are the most widely used handset on our network. However, PBX supports any softphone or handset that support the SIP protocol.
Additionally, the Snom devices are extremely reliable and tested internally by our engineering team with PBX, this is another reason why we heavily recommend these units.
Should you not be using Snom handsets, apply techniques shown in the article to configure your manufacturer of IP handset. Or alternatively, contact our support department for assistance.
Follow the instructions, supplied in the device user manual to assemble the handset.
Connect the internet port to an Ethernet cable plugged into your internal network, the power supply and the PC port to an Ethernet port attached to your computer if required.
Once plugged in find your phone’s IP address, Use the left-hand key under the display to select IPAdr. the IP address will be displayed on the Snom device.
Type the IPv4 address into your web browser to access the web-interface. Making sure that your PC is on the same network range as your handset.
