- The configuration in Router and S-Series VoIP PBX
- The configuration in Zoiper softphone (iPhone)
- The configuration in Zoiper softphone (Android)
- Yeastar S100: firmware version 126.96.36.199; Local IP address: 192.168.5.150
- Zoiper in iPhone: Zoiper version 3.14
- Zoiper in Android Phone: Zoiper version 2.2.29
The configuration in Router and S-Series VoIP PBX
Step 1. Configure port forwarding on the router
Example: The router’s public IP is 110.X.X.X.
Since Yeastar S-Series VoIP PBX is behind the router, to register extension or softphone to Yeastar S-Series VoIP PBX remotely, you need to forward the SIP port on the router which is connected to Yeastar S-Series PBX, so that all the packets received on the router WAN port (110.X.X.X:5061) will be forwarded to the Yeastar S-Series VoIP PBX (192.168.5.150:5061). Below is the setting page in a Linksys router.
Note: we must map TCP port 5061 and TCP port 10000-12000.
Step 2. Configure NAT settings in Yeastar S-Series PBX.
Login Yeastar S-Series VoIP PBX web interface and go to “Setting> General> SIP> NAT”, configure the NAT settings according to the directions below.
- NAT Type: choose “External IP Address”, you can choose “External Host” or “STUN” if you don’t have a static public IP address.
- External IP Address: fill in the router’s public IP address
- Local Network Address: fill in your local network segment and subnet mask (i.e.192.168.5.150/255.255.255.0)
- NAT mode: Yes
Step 3. Setup an extension in Yeastar S-Series PBX. (i.e. 1002).
- NAT: Yes
- Register Remotely: Yes
Step 4. Enable TLS on S100.
- Navigate to Settings> PBX> General> SIP> PBX> TLS.
- Check the checkbox of Enable TLS.
- Don't select any certificate of Certificate.
- Click Save and click Yes on the pop-up window to reboot the PBX.
Step 5. Setup a TLS extension.
Go to Settings> PBX> Extensions> Advanced, choose an extension and edit it, set the transport as TLS.
The configuration in Zoiper Softphone (iPhone)
Step 1. Setup Zoiper mobile softphone and fill the information.
- Account name: the extension number
- Domain: public IP address of the router, the port is 5061(TLS)
- User name: the extension number
- Caller ID: the extension number
- Auth Username: the extension number
Access the path: Settings> Accounts in the Zoiper, then click "+" > Yes> Manual configuration> SIP Account (in this case we take the iPhone version as an example)
Step 2. Enable the TLS in Zoiper.
The path is Settings> Accounts(500)> ADDITIONAL SETTINGS> Network Settings
Then you can registered it.
The Configuration in Zoiper Softphone (Android)
Step 1. Fill the information in Zoiper
Access the path: Settings> Accounts
Step 2. Enable the TLS
Access the path: Network Settings> Accounts> Transport> TLS
Choose the protocol of TLS
Path:Settings> Advanced> Security> TLS Options> Protocol Suite, SSL v2/v3
Then you can register and make a call.
