How to setup a VOIP phone – In just two steps!

 

Hey everybody, how are you guys doing? My name is Sebastian, and in this video I’m going to show you how you can set up an ip-based phone system, for your startup, in just two steps! This is ridiculous! And for demonstration purposes I’m going to use this very affordable IP phone from Yealink, as well as really cool new company that I found online, so let’s have a closer look. But first before I start, let me tell you why I like these IP phone systems so much, first thing I love so much about it, i can get a phone number in every country whenever I need it, and then I can have these calls routed anywhere I want to. So this is the first thing, why I love this so much, second let’s say someone calls the Miami office while I’m in, maybe on a business trip in Germany, if someone calls the Miami number that call can be rerouted instantaneously to my cell phone while I’m waiting in the airport in Germany and third think about how powerful it is to have an automated voice system where people can call in on your numbers that you have globally and you can have a call routing any way you want to and you can setup, set it up really flexible just in the back end, this is really terrific! Now that I’ve shown you why i love the IP phone so much let’s quickly go through the two steps together, first i’m going to show you how you can create a free Sonetel account and second i’m going to show you how you can quickly configure a Yealink IP phone, that’s kinda like enterprise-grade but still very very affordable maybe just around sixty seventy dollars so let’s jump right in and I show you how to create a free account for your IP phone.

 

And keep in mind that phones like these supports several lines you can easily use it for other providers as well, now I really went online and did some searching for you guys so check this out what I found, I found a company that specifically tailored for entrepreneurs and maybe small business owners and they offer you to sign up for free! How insane is that? How insane is that? And you can get a phone number, if you want to, for as low as eighty-nine cents i mean like this ridiculous and it’s exactly what I did so I’m just going to sign in and i’m going to show you the back end, and I show you the example set up that I just did so you basically just go to sign in, of course you have to set up the free account first, but once you have done that, you just sign into your account, and this will take you to the back end, where you can configure everything, like you can set up a phone number and link it to a user, you can set different users with different extensions and every user you can configure, you can add multiple phones to user, and then it routes it accordingly, for example what I did in my case I’d registered a number in the US and if people call my US number i can have that call rerouted to my cell phone in Germany, or i can have it rerouted to my IP phone, and guys since it is an IP phone, like it’s only needs the internet connection that phone could be located anywhere I wanted to! Heck, I could take this IP phone with me when i travel and just plug it into the internet and the phone is online, like who ridiculous is that? So to summarize you can connect multiple phones to a number and these phones can be located in different locations it could be cellphones, it could be a landline it could be an IP phone, a hard desk phone or a soft phone something that it could be even an app on your iPhone I mean the opportunities like what you can come up with literally endless so don’t be fooled by this simple looking interface and another amazing feature is what they called voice apps where you can configure like for example the main menu and you can configure this main menu anyway you want you can even hire a voiceover artist to do the menu for you I mean like this is really awesome, so let’s jump to the phone and I show you this voice menu, so let me quickly show you, how you can access this voice menu anytime, you just push star 21 and then it will dial welcome if you know the extension of the person you would like to speak to you can enter it now for sales press one for information about our operating hours press two for all other inquiries press three for stay on the line, now check this out, i can program this menu anyway I want to! We are open monday through friday between 9am and 6pm if you know the extension of the person you like…

 

But you can also do crazy stuff like this for example, what you could do you could just change the language of the menu to chinese, so let’s check this out real quick! Now let’s check this out once more but now with the Chinese menu, again I push star 21 Chinese… Chinese… Chinese… Chinese… And now i can have the phone call me, i just press extension 101 Chinese… And yeah it shows me the incoming call here so that’s it, end the call, but I could have also had routed to my cell phone depending on how it is set, depending on how i have it set up, so this is really amazing, and yeah you can still see this is the missed call from my US number so yeah terrific, now this really goes to show that these phone systems are incredibly flexible so i encourage you to head over to sonetel.com and click the services section, so you can learn more about the details of what you can do with a service like that and I mean it doesn’t have to be the same provider.

 

I just wanted to illustrate the point here look at these features they offer and yeah like another example for example let’s say you have some someone from your company located in Germany and you want to make a call in the U.S. so the guy in Germany just has an IP phone on his desk and you can just call over to us wait a second to maybe a friend who works at the coworking space somewhere in downtown Jacksonville so check it out guys this is kind of really crazy, and the IP phone systems make it possible I mean you can come up with your own examples like just imagine it and don’t be fooled by this simple interface in the back end, and to set up the IP phone just head over to the help section and go to help topics and look under SIP and then what SIP phones can i connect and bang you will find a list of possible options to how you can connect to their service and i’m using this Yealink phone, and bang a complete tutorial, you just, you just enter it in, here are the config details and it’s literaly that simple, you just log into your phone, your phone has a browser interface and you just put in the data into the browser interface, the way to tell you to and you click confirm and you’re logged into service I mean it couldn’t be easier right? So this concludes my presentation if you have any questions let me know in the comments below and I’ll try to get back to you as fast as I can and yeah if you still need a website for your business make sure to watch my website tutorial as well and i hope you have an awesome terrific day and I hope your startup is going to do extremely well and finally two rounds off and get you excited why don’t you head over to their YouTube page I mean they don’t have that many subscribers and but check out this video that’s called “be a global entrepreneur” that’s a really great video the marketing company that made that video I would hire that marketing company right away and with that I hope you have a great day and like i said if you still need a website for your startup make sure to check out my website building tutorial or download the free eBook as well!

Linux RAW Sockets – Generate VoIP SIP Packets

Linux RAW Sockets – Generate VoIP SIP Packets

Hey guys welcome back to another great episode of The Linux Channel in this episode I am going to discuss and going to show you how you can build your custom VoIP SIP Packet and you can do it via C Linux RAW Socket Programming and then I am going to show you a quick code walk like I have done in my previous episode in terms of building your custom OSPF Packet but here is the catch .. you know the SIP Packet is an UDP Packet .. so you need to calculate the checksums for both UDP header as well as the IP header unlike the OSPF packet you can create almost the same way and … I am going to show you the source code and I am going to do a code-walk quick code walk as well as I am going to share the source code in my google drive or my other website and I am going to share the link across the Youtube description from which you can download the source and then I am going to show you also a quick demo of ..

Compiling this code and generating a custom packet so in case you are a network admin or a hacker you can just skip the source code code walk part and you know you can just focus on interms of other aspects interms of building your custom packet and here and there you can do some minimal customization and you can self compile this code and you can just change it according to your need so lets just go to my desktop guys and let me just show my code and let me just show you the quick demo of the same ! Guys .. welcome to my desktop guys 🙂 what I have done is .. I have written this piece of code which is voip_sip I am just going to open it in my IDE (Editor) and do a quick code walk in case you are an admin or in case you are a hacker or something ..

as I discussed earlier you can just skip this part and you can just concentrate on the demo part anyway in case if you are looking for any kind of small customization I hope .. you know .. this code-walk is going to help you I have done earlier an exclusive video on OSPF perhaps you know .. it has almost the similar source-code but it has few elements which are specific to generation of a typical VoIP SIP Packet as such so you have this initial part which has all these typedefs so I am just going to focus on certain elements which are far more important so that you can understand as well as you can customize so what I have done is I have done this large buffer which contains the entire UDP header as well as the SIP pakcet so the initial 8-bytes are going to be the UDP-header so the checksum part what I have done is I left them as 0-bytes as you can see here so this is the entire UDP-header and then followed by which you have this entire SIP packet as such so this is the buffer which is you know primarily going to be used and apart from that there is also another buffer which is a layer-2 header which is the Ethernet header so it has around 14-bytes which you can see here and the type of the Ethernet header is you know 0x08 and 0x00 in hexadecimal so which it means it is going to be an IP-Header followed by which you know it is going to have UDP-Header followed by which it is going to have a SIP-Packet as such so what I have done is I have hardcoded the source address and destination IP-addresses as you can see here in case you want to change it according to your NIC card or something you can just do the modifications accordingly and ..

apart from that .. it is having the code in terms of generating you know check-sum for the UDP header.
