Applies to version(s): v3.0, v3.1

The initial configuration of the SBC is done by accessing a configuration wizard in a web browser (Chrome, Firefox or other). Before you begin, you must have the following information on hand:

  • Product key: In the following VTB-XXX-XXXX format. If you do not have this key, please go to our ProSBC Download site .
  • Hostname of the unit. It is important to set the host name correctly and to not modify it later, otherwise you will need a new license.
  • Will the system be used as a standalone unit or in a Primary/Secondary configuration?
  • Does the system require external transcoding? For example, G.711 to G.729a transcoding.
  • The role of each of the network interfaces

Once you have this information, proceed as indicated below:

Initial configuration of the SBC

1- Open a web browser to the IP of your server, on port 12358. For example, if your server address is 192.168.178.30, the URL would be:
http://192.168.178.30:12358
2- An SBC Configuration Wizard is displayed.

  • Click Continue

5- Enter your SSH and WEB root password
** No need to enter the SSH password for AWS.

7- If the system requires external transcoding, select it here. As an example, if the system needs G.711 to G.729a transcoding, then select yes.
** Not applicable for AWS.

8- Here you will choose the role of the network adapters in the system here is a short description of each type:

  • mgmt: Used for management of the system (suggested name: mgmt0)
  • ctrl0: Used for communication with the external transcoding devices (suggested name: ctrl0)
  • ctrl1: Same as ctrl0. Adds redundancy (suggested name: ctrl1)
  • LAN/WAN: SIP/RTP access to private network (suggested name: LAN0) or public network (suggested name: WAN0).

You need to configure all IP interfaces. In case of doubt, configure them as management interfaces.

9- You can select the "+" sign to get more information on this interface

If 1+1 (control networks ctrl0/ctrl1) or multiple vlan interfaces are needed, make sure all of them are assigned to the appropriate MAC address taken from the Platform (VMware Instance settings or other)
