Summary

Information und configuration hints for SIP provider Node4 (Great Britain/UK).


Information

General information

Node4 is offering registerless SIP trunks. This means that the authentication is based on the public IP address of the SwyxWare server. Therefore, you need a static, public IP address from your ISP assigned to the SwyxWare server.

Node4 is operating with a number of different servers. Therefore it is not possible to preconfigure the Proxy Server in the "SIP" tab of the Trunkgroup Properties dialog. In this field, please enter the IP address that GammaTelecom has named you.

Configuration

During creation of the SIP Trunk Group, the profile 'Node4 (UK)' must be selected.

In case that the SwyxWare server is running with a private IP address and the static, public IP address is provided by NAT gateway, it is necessary to configure a STUN server in the properties of the SIP trunk group, under the tab 'SIP'. A list of public STUN servers can e.g. be found at  http://www.voip-info.org/wiki/view/STUN.
