Quadro Manual I: Installation Guide
Step 1: Installing the QuadroCS
Step 1: Installing the QuadroCS
Networking Overview
To establish a connection between the Internet and your local area network (LAN), a separate access router is needed. The Quadro products are an excellent choice for this function.
The QuadroCS can serve as an access router for a single PC used during configuration,
but it is not recommended to be used as the primary Internet access router for your company’s LAN. The QuadroCS has one LAN port that can be connected to Ethernet hubs and
switches on the LAN allowing more devices to reach the QuadroCS for configuration.
Every device within an IP network requires a unique IP address to identify itself. Since the
QuadroCS connects to both the LAN and the WAN, it has to be part of both networks, and
must have two IP addresses: one for the WAN side and one for the LAN side. The
QuadroCS’s integrated firewall/NAT functionality will hide the LAN IP address from the
WAN (Internet) side.
There are two ways of assigning an IP address: statically or dynamically. The Quadro CS
can be configured with a static IP address on the WAN interface. You also can use a DHCP
server-assigned IP address on the WAN side.
Please Note: A DHCP client is a piece of software that requests an IP address from a
DHCP server. A DHCP server assigns on request a unique IP address to a device. The
Quadro, like many routers, acts as a DHCP client on its WAN interface and as a DHCP
server on its LAN interface.
The QuadroCS must be visible to the Internet to receive and send VoIP calls. When the
QuadroCS is placed in a private network, typically behind existing routers, it will by default
attempt to pass through the NAT of this router with its STUN (Simple Traversal of UDP over
NAT) feature. STUN will work without user configuration with the majority of the basic
routers. In some scenarios, port forwarding on the router is required to make the QuadroCS
accessible to other Quadro devices and the Epygi SIP Server on the Internet. The recommended configuration option is to connect the QuadroCS directly to the Internet eliminating
the need to traverse the local NAT firewall.

WAN Connection Options
•
QuadroCS behind a router, which is connected to a cable or DSL modem.
Fig. I-3: Configuration: QuadroCS behind a router
In this configuration, the IP router typically acts as a DHCP server for the LAN and assigns
the IP addresses to the PCs and other devices. The Quadro can be connected through its
WAN port directly to one of the router's LAN ports and will get an IP address from the
router. By default, the Quadro acts as a DHCP client on the WAN port.
Please Note: Since Quadro uses STUN by default, it will work with most basic
routers without any further configuration.
Please Note: Initially, the Admin PC must be connected to the QuadroCS’s LAN port to access Web Management of the QuadroCS. Later, this PC can be moved to the router’s LAN.
The QuadroCS Web Management can be accessed from any PC in the router LAN after
the Quadro firewall is disabled.

Verify the product package contents are complete. Refer to the contents sheet included
in the packaging to determine if all the items were shipped in the box.
Before you connect the hardware, make sure that all devices are powered off.
Connect the Ethernet port on your PC via a straight CAT 5 cable with an RJ-45 connector to the LAN socket of the Quadro. If a hub or switch is connected between the
QuadroCS and your PC, use a crossover cable from the LAN interface of the
QuadroCS to the hub/switch.
Connect the WAN port of the QuadroCS to the Internet service.
Connect the power adapter to the POWER port on the QuadroCS’s rear panel and plug
the power adapter into a power outlet. Only use the original power adapter and plug it
into a power strip with surge protection or to a UPS if available.
The red LED (Fault) will glow for several seconds followed by the yellow LED (Info),
which will glow for several minutes. As soon as Info is off, the QuadroCS is operational.
Power up any PC on the LAN side.

Quadro Manual I: Installation Guide
Step 1: Installing the QuadroCS
Please Note: The PC must be configured for DHCP to receive an IP address directly
from the QuadroCS. Refer to the first Appendix for instructions on how to set up a PC
for DHCP operation.
•
Check the LEDs: The green Busy LED must glow continuously. The green LAN and
WAN LEDs will blink when cables are connected to these ports and all devices are
powered up. If the green LAN and WAN LEDs do not blink, verify cabling and ensure
that all devices are powered up.
Please Note: CAT 5 cables can be faulty without visual indication. The LAN and WAN
LEDs verify that the Ethernet connection is established between the end points. If these
LEDs are not illuminated, there is a connection problem between the QuadroCS and
the other device. Some hubs, switches and routers will require the use of crossover cables.

Step 2: Configuring the QuadroCS
Step 2: Configuring the QuadroCS
The QuadroCS does not require further network
configuration in two cases:
•
•
The QuadroCS is connected behind a basic
router that is compatible with the QuadroCS’s
implementation of STUN
The QuadroCS is connected directly to the Internet and your ISP supports DHCP. There are no
other router devices between the QuadroCS and the
DSL or cable modem and you get the IP address
assigned automatically by the ISP.
Your QuadroCS is now connected properly to the Internet. You may customize the following settings
•
•
•
•
LAN Settings - if you want to enter a unique name for the QuadroCS
Regional Settings it is important that you properly configure your country and
time zone settings.
WAN IP Settings
If your WAN uplink is static IP or DHCP you will need to know whether DHCP is
supported or not.
If DHCP is not supported, you need to know the WAN IP address, the subnet
mask, the IP address of the default gateway and the IP address of the Domain
Name Server (DNS).
Your ISP should have provided you with this information when you installed
your Internet access. Otherwise, you will need to contact your ISP to request it.
Firewall - if your QuadroCS is connected behind a router, disable the
QuadroCS’s firewall to make it easily accessible for management.
To customize the settings, connect a PC to the QuadroCS's LAN port, log in and complete
the Basic Configuration as described in step 2.1 and 2.2.

QuadroCS is connected behind a router. To configure the firewall, open Firewall/Nat
Settings from the Uplink Settings menu. Disable the firewall by deselecting the corresponding checkbox.
Fig. I-13: Firewall Configuration page
The Internet connection is properly configured now and you can start generating the first
conference. If this conference will be registered on a SIP server, you have to do that first,
as you will need the SIP Registration information to generate a conference on the
QuadroCS.
As a default there is one conference that is pre-configured on the QuadroCS and the Epygi
SIP server to register automatically.
If you want to use the Epygi SIP Server to register your conference, you have to register at
Epygi Technical Support first (see next step below) to get a login to the Epygi SIP server.
Then the conference may be registered (see step 4) and finally can be set up on the
QuadroCS (see step 5).
If you do not require registration of your conference, skip to Step 5: Configuring a Conference on QuadroCS.

The Moderator Password sets a password for the moderator to access the conference. The moderator is able to use conference codes during the active conference as
well as to access conference-specific GUI pages to coordinate the conference.
Participant Password sets a password for participants to access the conference. The
participant is able to participate in the conference only according to the permissions
granted (speaker or listener). The participant also can access a conference specific
GUI and to view the conference’s properties.
Enable Routing Mode enables dialing according to the dial plan configured in the
QuadroCS call routing tables when dialing out a participant during a conference. When
this checkbox is selected, any dialed number will be parsed through the Call Routing
Table (see Manual II: Administrator's Guide). For this conference example, this checkbox remains unchecked
Leave Active allows the conference to remain active even if all participants have left.
Next displays the second page of the Conference Wizard, the Conference SIP Registration Settings page:
Fig. I-21: Conference SIP Registration Settings page
4. This page only is needed if the conference is registered on a SIP server (how to register a conference on the Epygi Sip Server).
Registration Password indicates the password for the extension registration on a SIP
server.
Registration SIP Server indicates the host address of the SIP server (either an IP address, (e.g., 192.168.0.26) or a host address, (e.g., sip.epygi.com)).
Registration SIP Port indicates the host port number to connect to the SIP server. If
the SIP server port is not specified, the QuadroCS will access the SIP server through
the default port 5060.

Step 5: Configuring a Conference on the QuadroCS
SIP Outbound Proxy Settings are used to configure the QuadroCS’s connection to
the SIP server. The SIP Outbound proxy is a SIP server where all the SIP requests and
other SIP messages are transferred. Some SIP servers use outbound proxy servers to
escape restrictions of NAT. SIP Outbound Settings are provided by the SIP server
provider and are used by the QuadroCS to reach the selected SIP server. If an Outbound proxy is specified for a conference, all outbound SIP calls from that conference
are sent to that outbound proxy.
SIP Outbound Proxy address requires the IP address or the host name of the
outbound proxy.
SIP Outbound Proxy Port requires the port number on which QuadroCS may
reach the outbound proxy.
SIP UserID text field requires an identification parameter to reach the SIP server.
The UserID may be requested by some SIP servers. It should be left empty if the
SIP server does not require it.
Duplicate allows duplicating a conference with the settings of an exiting one: The Conference Wizard is opened again, with some basic settings of the selected conference
already filled in. Basic settings for the new conference (like password, username, etc.)
will be required, in any case.
Finish will complete the configuration of the conference and the conference will be displayed in the All Conferences table:

to devices connected to the LAN. This appendix describes how to configure Windows PCs
for DHCP. The PC used to access the Quadro must meet the following conditions:
•
•
TCP/IP network protocol must be installed.
DHCP must be activated to request the IP address automatically.
Please Note: If your PC is already configured for DHCP, then simply power it on. Verify the
LAN LED is lit. If not, check the cable connections.
Follow the instructions below to install TCP/IP and enable DHCP functionality:
