CIITIX-VoIP 1.0 How-To - Page 2
1. On the command prompt as a super user, create users as follows:
root@CIITIX-VOIP:~# kamctl add omar 123
User "omar" with password "123" should be created. Likewise create other users.
2. Users could be removed as follows:
root@CIITIX-VOIP:~# kamctl rm <user name>
3. Passwords can be changed as follows:
root@CIITIX-VOIP:~# kamctl password <user name> <newpa*sword>
You can try any SIP client (Soft-phone/Hard-phone) with xcap protocol support.
This demo uses sip-communicator from http://www.sip-communicator.org/index.php/Main/Download (which is a free client but still in alpha stage). Download the one for your architecture & Operating System.
You can also try Bria or eyebeam soft-phones from http://www.counterpath.com/
Run "sip-communicator", and choose "Add New Account" from the "File" menu.
From the "Network" comb box choose “SIP”.
Add the user credentials. "omar"/"123" in our case. You can use the IP address of the server or the FQDN if you have a DNS setup. Click the "Advanced" button afterwards.
Click the "Presence" Tab & set the entries accordingly. The suffix from "5060" onwards should remain the same. (Default port of SIP is 5060 if you have changed it use that one). This step is imperative if you wish to maintain a permanent list of your buddies (sort of like roaming profile thing). Click the "Next" button afterwards.
Click "Sign in" if all the information is right. You should be logged in after 1-2 seconds.
Adding contacts/buddies is also pretty straight forward. Just choose the "Add Contact" from the "File" menu. Add your contact.
Note: You cannot search for users. You just have to know about your contact's username beforehand. In this example a buddy named "osman" is being added. And yes he also has to be registered on the same server.
The status of your contacts will be displayed according to their active status.
Congratulations! You have set up CIITIX-VOIP successfully.
