    hello all ,

    I have a small question , i made extensions and everything is going well but now if any one has a soft phone in my company and knows the secret for the extension he can use any extension for his calls , so i wonder if there is any way to make the extensions more secured i.e if there is a way that users can change the secret of the extension i think it will be more safe like that, any sugestions ,
    Thnx in advanced

    if someone is using a softphone he will know only the secret associated to his extension (and not if you were the one entering the secret in his soft).
    Of course if you are using the same secret for each extension or with the extension number in it, that's easy to guess the other ones...

    Using your secret password the same as your extension is a HUGE no no. Login for voicemail is OK but not the secret. You can also limit the IP address that is allowed to use that extension. You can do this for each extension.... which is a nice little added security. Under device options for the extension, you will see allow. Enter the IP address/Submask of the phone (192.168.xx.xx/255.255.255.0). This will limit who can use it.

    I've moved this thread to the security subforum.
