Set up Linkus Server without LCS

If you don't use Linkus server with LCS, you need to configure the Linkus server according to your network environment.

Note:
  • To configure Linkus server without LCS, you should have a good knowledge of your network environment.
  • The Linkus server without LCS doesn't support Linkus Chat function.

This article introduces how to set up Linkus server with LCS according to different network scenarios。

PBX is behind a router

If the PBX is behind a router and the Linkus communicates with the PBX through the network interface that is configured with a private IP, you need to forward the Linkus relevant ports on your router and configure NAT on your PBX.

  1. Forward the Linkus relevant ports on your router. In this example, forward the following ports:
    Service Port Local Port External Port
    Linkus Service Port 8111 9850
    SIP Registration Port 5060 6023
    RTP Ports 10000-12000 40000-42000
  2. To ensure successful communication through Linkus, configure the PBX NAT settings.

    Go to Settings > PBX > General > SIP > NAT to configure NAT settings.

    • NAT Type: Select a type according to your network environment. In this example, select External IP Address.
    • External IP Address: Enter the public IP address, and enter the external SIP port. In this example, enter 11.11.11.11:6023.
    • Local Network Identification: Enter the local IP address and subnet mask of the PBX. In this example, enter 192.168.7.112/255.255.255.0.
    • NAT Mode: Select Yes.
  3. Configure the Linkus Server according to your network circumstance.

    • Local Hostname/IP:Port: Enter the local IP address of the PBX and Linkus local port. In this example, enter 192.168.7.112:8111
    • External Hostname/IP:Port: Enter the public IP address or domain name of the PBX and the Linkus external port. In this example, enter 11.11.11.11:9850.
    • SIP Remote Registration Port: Enter the SIP external port. In this example, enter 6023.

PBX is connected to the ISP router directly

If the PBX is connected to a ISP router, you do NOT need to do port forwarding and configure NAT on your PBX.

  1. Configure the Linkus server according to your network circumstance.

    • Local Hostname/IP: Port: Enter the IP address of the PBX and the Linkus local port. In this example, enter 11.11.11.11:8111.
    • External Hostname/IP:Port: Leave it blank.
    • SIP Remote Registration Port: Leave it blank.

PBX is connected to a VPN network

You do NOT need to do port forwarding on your router.

  1. Configure the Linkus Server according to the VPN network information.

    • Local Hostname/IP:Port: Enter the VPN IP address of the PBX and the Linkus local port. In this example, enter 10.8.0.6:8111.
    • External Hostname/IP:Port: Leave it blank.
    • SIP Remote Registration Port: Leave it blank.
