  • WebRTC: Setting up a Web phone

    STEP GUIDE  How to set up your web phone


    Here's an overview of the steps needed to set up a soft phone within your PBX environment using WebRTC.

    STEP 1:  

    SmartPBX_x512.pngIn Smart PBX  Add and/or enable a SIP "device" to your user listing in.  This can be a softphone, a SIP desk phone, or a SIP Smartphone.  NOTE:  If you have a device already set up and wish to use that, you can skip the first part of this STEP guide and go directly to "Activating your webphone".

    STEP 2:

    WebRTC-Phone.pngIn WebRTC  Activate / assign  which "device" you want to use as your WebRTC phone.



    Adding a  device to your user device list.  

    You may need to request step 1 be completed by your system admin, depending on the access and permissions assigned to you as a user.

    SmartPBX_x512.png Go to your Smart PBX application.

    Pick Devices from the menu at the left
