SIP Account Authentication

In this article, you will learn how to set password-based or IP-based authentication for your SIP account.

By default, password-based authentication is enabled. You may want to switch to the IP-based one when you set up a trunk to a CommPeak server.

To switch between authentication types: 

  1. Expand VoIP Services in the left pane.
  2. Click the SIP Accounts tab.
  3. Click Edit for the SIP account you wish to modify.
  4. On the Edit SIP Account page, scroll down to the Authentication section.
  5. Toggle the switch:
    • to the right to enable the IP authentication
    • to the left for password authentication.
  6. Enter the following information:
    • IP authentication: enter one or more IP addresses allowed to access this SIP account
      To enter an IP address, type in the field and then click on the plus icon:
    • password authentication: enter username, minimum eight characters long. Optionally, you can add extra authentication with an IP ACL (access control list) - specify one or more IPs from which you can access the SIP account with these credentials.
  7. Click SAVE CHANGES.
  8. If you switched to password authentication, reset the password to create a permanent password.
You can apply IP authentication for your SIP account to static IP addresses only. More IP access options are available to the Cloud PBX and CommPeak Dialer users.
