Set PBX IP address according to final destination network.
IF pbx is set up with final network IP address, set up localnet, and then ACL
Create and register at least 2 extensions, place test call between them to ensure calls are working
Build rest of extensions/destinations
IF pbx is set up with final network IP address, auto-discover phones and assign them to extensions
Set up trunks (SIP, PRI/Analog Card, Gateway, etc)
IF NEEDED, ensure router port forwarding OR 1:1 NAT is set up
Test inbound and outbound calls
Security Best Practices
We recommend for all sites that you set up to do automated backups of the database to FTP, this way if anything goes wrong you have a recent backup file saved off from the PBX to restore on your spare.
