Manually Set up Linkus Server

This topic describes how to manually set up Linkus server according to different network scenarios.

Restrictions

To allow users to remotely use Linkus Web Client, you need to subscribe Enterprise Plan or Ultimate Plan, and set up Linkus server with Remote Access Service (RAS).

For more information, see Set up Linkus Server with Remote Access Service.

PBX is behind a router

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

Procedure
Based on the above network topology diagram, you can configure Linkus server as follows:
  1. Log in to PBX management portal, go to System > Network > Service Ports to check and manage local service ports on your PBX system.
  2. Forward Linkus-related ports on your router.

    In this example, forward the following ports:

    Service Port Local Port External Port
    Linkus Service Port TCP&UDP 8111 TCP&UDP 8111
    SIP Registration Port UDP 5060 UDP 6023
    RTP Ports UDP 10000-12000 UDP 10000-12000
  3. Configure SIP NAT on your PBX for remote access.

    The SIP NAT settings are configured to ensure that SIP data can be transmitted correctly between the PBX and the public Internet.

    1. On the PBX management portal, go to System > Network > Public IP and Ports.
    2. Enable Public IP (NAT).
    3. In the NAT Type drop-down list, select Public IP Address.
    4. In the Public IP Address field, enter the public IP address. In this example, enter 11.11.11.11.
    5. In the Local Network Identification section, click + Add IP to add all your local network. In this example, enter 192.168.6.0/255.255.255.0.
    6. In the NAT Mode drop-down list, select Yes.
  4. Enter external SIP port and Linkus service port, which helps the router to direct appropriate traffic from the Internet to the PBX.
    • External SIP UDP Port: In this example, enter 6023.
    • External Linkus Port: In this example, enter 8111.
  5. Click Save.
Result
Linkus server for both local access and remote access is set up.
What to do next

PBX is connected to the ISP router directly

If the PBX is connected to an Internet Service Provider (ISP) router, the Linkus server is ready to be accessed remotely.

Note:
  • In this network scenario, you do NOT need to do port forwarding on your router and configure SIP NAT settings on your PBX.
  • For this network scenario, you should change the SIP UDP port on the PBX to improve the system security.

What to do next

PBX is connected to a VPN network

If your PBX is connected to a VPN network, the Linkus server is ready to be accessed by the VPN network.

Note: In this network scenario, you do NOT need to do port forwarding on your router or configure SIP NAT settings on your PBX.
