Adding Generic SIP extensions

A Generic SIP extension allows local or remote login of any standards based SIP phone or softphone.When a Generic SIP extension is created, both an Extension and an Extension Port are created with the same name, and automatically associated together. In this case, there is no device element related to the Extension Port.

The following password generation schemes are supported for SIP extensions:

  • Fixed: The same password is set for all the newly created extensions. A new strong, random password of length 12 is suggested by default.

  • Same as Extension: The password for each newly created extension is the same as the extension number.

    Note: setting the extension password to the extension number is strongly discouraged and may lead to weak system security!

  • Random: A strong unique, random password of length 12 is generated , for each newly created extension.
