Brekeke SIP Server v3 Quickstart Guide

This guide provide a simple setup sample for getting started using Brekeke SIP Server

In this guide, we use following environment for setting up Brekeke SIP Server.

- Windows OS
- Brekeke SIP Server installed with installer (exe file) 

What's Required?

  • LAN switch or hub for setting up a small LAN environment
  • Windows PC
  • PhonerLite ( installed on two separate PCs.
    (Note that PhonerLite requires a microphone and speaker[s] for voice communication.)

Step 1 - Setting up a Windows PC with a static IP address

Step 2 - Download and Install Brekeke SIP Server

Step 3 - Setting Up User Authentication Accounts

The authentication for REGISTER and INVITE is enabled by default on Brekeke SIP Server, which is set from fields under product admintool > [Configuration] > [SIP] > [Authentication]. To register a SIP UA with authentication, create a [User Authentication] account for your SIP UA.

If you do not require to authenticate users, configure settings below. Then, skip the rest of step 3 and move on to step 4.

  1. Set [SIP Server Admin] > [Configuration] > [SIP] > [Authentication] > [REGISTER]: off.
  2. Set [SIP Server Admin] > [Configuration] > [SIP] > [Authentication] > [INVITE]: off.
