Create new satellite
Navigate to: System settings > Telephony & Meetings > Satellites
Click on the New Satellite button.
The Create new satellite dialog box opens. Enter the following values:
Select a unique Name for the satellite.
Enter the IP address of the satellite. This can be read from the console.
Enter a new root password for the satellite’s Debian operating system.
In the factory setting, the password is
A1111!and it will be changed during initial configuration.
Remember the root password. The XPhone Server does not know your root password for security reasons.
A later change of the root password is only possible via the console of the satellite via:
Save your configuration.
The process can take a few seconds, as the connection to the satellite is established here and certificates are exchanged.
You can see the connection status in the list overview:
Highlight the entry in the list and press the Start button.
When the satellite is started, the components are also installed or updated.
The status changes to:
They may not see this status because it lasts only a short time.
The displayed state on the page updates itself. This can take 5-15min depending on network load etc.
Finally, the status changes to:
Outsourcing the XCC
It is recommended to deactivate the XCC and all gateways connected to it before outsourcing.
Navigate to System settings > Telephony & Meetings > Telephony > SIP > XCC.
Select the XCC entry and click Edit.
Activate the Disabled checkbox.
Click the Save button and wait until the XCC deactivated appears.
Proceed in exactly the same way with all SIP trunks that have been set up.
Open the XCC again.
Select the radio button Use outsourced XCC on a Linux satellite and select the satellite in the selection list.
Then activate the XCC again.
If the XCC does not work properly or, for example, “localhost” is still displayed as IP in the diagnostics, disabling and re-enabling often helps.
Configure SIP Gateways
This is mainly about the offloading of the XCC to the Linux satellite. The previous connection instructions are still valid, although the IP addresses of the satellite must be configured as targets in the telephone systems. Please also refer to the chapter XPhone Call Controller - XCC.
Navigate to System settings > Telephony & Meetings > Telephony > SIP. Select an existing SIP gateway here, or create a new SIP gateway object with the New SIP gateway button.
When making the settings, it must be ensured that the IP address of the XPhone Call Controller corresponds to that of the outsourced Linux satellite.
All other XCC settings can be found in the chapter: XPhone Call Controller - XCC.
