4.0 Setup Procedure
To set up the Elastix Server for the Snom 720,
1. Go to the web address of the Elastix Server Login page. The web address is
determined by the customer, for this guide we have used the IP address
2. On the Login page, type the username and password for an administrative user into
the Username and Password fields, see Figure 4-1. The username and password are
determined by the customer.
Figure 4-1. Login
3. Press Enter or click on the Submit button to go to Elastix‟s Dashboard
4. Once inside, click on the PBX tab on the menu at the top of the screen

5. Click on the Submit button to add an extension, see Figure 4-3. This will take you
to the Add SIP Extension page.
Figure 4-3. Add an Extension
6. On the Add SIP Extension page (Figure 4-4), fill in the following information:
• User Extension (301 in this example)
• Display Name ( “Snom720” in this example)
• secret (“h7Dka3Rf9si0t” in this example)
Figure 4-4. Add SIP Extension
7. Click on the „Submit‟ button at the end of the page. The extension will be created
and you will see the page on Figure 4-5 displaying the “Apply Configuration
Changes Here” pink ribbon on top of the screen.
Click in the “Apply Configuration Changes Here” link

9. With this you have just finished creating a SIP extension that will be used by the
Snom 720 to register with the Elastix Server. Repeat Steps 5 through 8 to similarly
create another extension (different values on Step 6) to be used by the IP (SIP)
Phone to register as well (extension 302 in this example). Once finished you will
see something similar to Figure 4-6
Figure 4-6. Snom and IP Phone extensions successfully created
10. To register the Snom Phone, you will need to enter the information from the
extension created on the Elastix Server into the Snom Phone by logging into the
Snom 720 WebUI.
To register the Snom Phone there are two methods: Manual Configuration and
AutoProvisioning using Elastix’s Endpoint Configurator.

Snom 720 Server Setup Guide
1. Log in to the Snom 720 WebUI by pointing your browser to the Snom Phone‟s IP
For the initial configuration, refer to the Snom 720 User Manual found at:
Factory default settings
IP Addressing
Web Access User Name
Web Access Password
Not set

2. When the WebUI is loaded, use the information from the Add SIP Extension page
(Figure 4-4) to enter the following necessary information on “Setup => Identity 1
=> Login” section of the Snom Phone WebUI (Figure 4-7):
Identity active: ON
Displayname: (SnomPhone in this example)
Account: (301 in this example)
Password: (“h7Dka3Rf9si0t” in this example)
Registrar: Elastix Server‟s IP Address ( in this example)
Outbound Proxy: Elastix Server‟s IP Address ( in this example)
Authentication Username: (301 in this example)
Mailbox: *97

Once you have entered the required information, click on „Save‟ button. Now, go to
“Setup => Identity 1 => RTP”. The “RTP Encryption” option should be set to “off”.
Apply and save changes. (Figure 4-8).

To check the correct registration of the account, go to “Status => System
Information” section (Figure 4-9). If it‟s not registered, make sure you‟ve entered
the correct information.

5. Configure the other IP (SIP) Phone with the correct parameters.
To test the Snom 720, pick up the previously configured IP (SIP) Phone and call
the Snom 720‟s extension number (301 in this example). When the call is
established, speak into the phone and verify that the other IP (SIP) Phone can hear
your voice. Check this by calling from both ends.

Note: The support for Endpoint Configurator is available in Elastix 2.4 by installing the
new Endopoint configurator module. This new module is already included in Elastix
1. For Elastix 2.4, log in to the console and install the module by entering the
yum -y install elastix-endpointconfig2
2. After installation, in the Elastix Web Interface go to “PBX => Batch Configurations
=> New Endpoint Configurator”. See figure 4-10

3. Type the network address where the phone is located and click on the magnifying
glass. This will generate a list with all the phones available in that network. See
figure 4-11.

4. In the row where the phone you want to autoprovision is located (find it according
to either its MAC or IP Address):
Mark the checkbox
From the drop-down list, select the correct Phone Model if it is not detected
Click on the link “[Configure x.x.x.x]” to set the parameters to configure the

5. After clicking in the configuration link, you will see a window with many tabs
according to what you want to configure. In this case we will configure a SIP
account. Go to the tab “Accounts” and drag the accounts you want to assign from
left to right. Then click on Apply button. See figure 4-12.

7. Now with the phones selected, click on the button “Apply Configuration” located
next to the magnifying glass button. A message will be shown saying the operation
was successful. See figure 4-14.

with the accounts you set. This step completes the procedure.
