Note: This Guide will assist the user in Installing and Using the IPitomy Communicator Softphone.
We have two different soft phone installs. The “demo” version does not include the user list which shows all of the presence of all of the users on the system. This is intended for trial versions or for users who are on a shared instance of IPitomy in the Cloud. For obvious reasons, on a shared instance, it would not be good to display the presence of all the other users!
The full commercial version is called IPitomy Communicator.
This requires an available IPitomy Extension License as well as an IPitomy Soft Phone License. This does not have auto configuration, but is super simple to set up. When installing it, select IP620 as the device type for the extension so it will use an IPitomy license instead of an open license.
This also requires the generation of a single API Key. If your PBX already has one generated for the IPitomy Communicator, you don't need to do anything else. If not, simply navigate to Applications=>API Key, name it Softphone [one word, capital S], and click Create. Be sure to enable it by checking the box labeled "Key Enable", then save and apply changes.

Integration Port = Leave blank and the software uses 80 to verify its license with the PBX. If the softphone is remote and an external port other than 80 is forwarded to the PBX, enter that as the Integration Port (eg, 8080 external forwarded to 80 internal)
All other information can be left at Default.
