Installation of the SipXecs server look straighforward, but there are some preconditions, which have to be checked. Especially if we are installing SipXecs into a network which is already using DHCP and DNS server.
For testing purposes I’ve observed, that we need working DNS server only
- for hosting SIP SRV record for the SIP domain under test with static IP address for sipxecs server
Requirement for DHCP:
- DHCP server is not required if we do not test HW phone autoconfig
- DNS server witch dynamic recording supported
for testing purposes is not needed, and everything works.
There is a guide at Sipfoundry about that, if you have some trouble please check it out.
For testing purposes we may create a local zone on our local DNS. I have created a zone for SIP testing on my local DNS
$ORIGIN sipxecs.local. _sip._udp IN SRV 0 1 5060 server server IN A myIPhere
when correctly typed during sipxecs installation server start work correctly.
