Setting up a soundpoint 650 sip phone with AsteriskNow


I’ve spent a lot of time trying to get the phone working with the software but to no avail.

My environment is:

AsteriskNow 1.4 (loading from vmware workstation)
Soundpoint 650 sip phone

My network is the company network which is not publicly addressable.

I’ve been told by my boss that due to the network the phone won’t be fully functional, but he just wants me to be able to target the phone and possibly be able to send a voice mail to it.

After I hook up the phone’s ethernet cable to the corp lan switch, I have no idea where to go from there to achieve my goal. Please help! =X


There is a specific forum for AsteriskNow where people will be more aware of the implications of using that GUI.

Are you running Asterisk on a VMWare guest? That is not a good idea.
