iinet VOIP with Siemens Gigaset C47H

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

If you are trying to get your Siemens Gigaset C47H working with iinet VOIP, I thought I'd plonk all my settings down and save you all the trouble shooting.

There's no guides or useful help out there! At the time of setting it up I thought I'd be man enough to get it going without harrassing iinet's technical staff. I succeeded after a lot of guessing and testing.... all very time consuming and frustrating. Never the less, I found success (woot!) and am providing my settings for you all.

 

Oh - i picked up this VOIP phone at a local 'Goodguys' for around $150 or so. I thought it was a good deal for a cordless unit with a relatively small base.

 

 

First: Don't even try setting it up via the handset menus.... waste if time!

Do it all on your PC via browsing to the IP of the VOIP in Internet Explorer 7 (it didn't like my Firefox...)

Password is 0000 by default.

 

Settings:

 

Telephony

-> Connections

I only used connection 1, and deactivated all the others that were preset.

 

Edit Connection 1:

 

Connection Name or Number: Insert your voip phone number (provided by iinet)

Provider: Other

 

Personal Provider Data

Authentication Name: Your VOIP phone number

Authentication password: The password given by iinet

Username: Your VOIP phone number

Display name: Whatever you want. I put iinetphone

 

Advanced Settings:

 

General Provider Data

Domain: iinetphone.iinet.net.au

Proxy server address: sip.nsw.iinet.net.au NOTE: this changes per state ie if you're in QLD it would be sip.qld.iinet.net.au

Proxy server port: 5060

Registrar server: sip.nsw.iinet.net.au

Registrar server port: 5060

Registration refresh time: 300 sec

 

Network

STUN enabled: No

STUN server: <blank>

STUN port: 3478

STUN refresh time: 240 sec

NAT refresh time: 20 sec

Outbound proxy mode: Always

Outbound proxy: sip.nsw.iinet.net.au

Outbound proxy port: 5060

->Audio

Settings for Bandwidth

 

Allow 1 VOIP call only: Yes

Voice Quality: Optimised for low bandwidth

 

Settings for Connections

Volume for VOIP Calls: Normal

Selected Codecs: This was auto, but I have: G.729, G.726, G.711a law, g.711U law, g.722

Enable Annex B for codec G.729: No (that's important, I had issues with yes)

 

-> Advanced Settings

DTMF over VoIP connections

Send settings:

Audio: Yes

RFC 2833: Yes

SIP Info: Yes

 

Listen ports for VoIP connections

Use random ports: No

SIP port: 5060

RTP port: 5004 - 5020

I found that any settings, other than those mentioned above, were fine to be tweaked.

 

Range wise it's ok, but gets murdered by my double brick reinforced concrete rendered walls. I think my thousands of wireless devices might reduce signal a bit too. It handles both fixed line and voip a the same time, which is pretty cool.

 

 

Anywhoo I hope this helps you!

 

(Oh - FYI I felt the need to write this because I had lots of issues getting this working correctly. In particular an issue with a disconnect every 7 to 25 seconds into an outbound VOIP call. Inbound didn't have the issue it seemed. meh... the above got rid of all problems!)

This is going to sound stupid, but what did you mean when you said

"Do it all on your PC via browsing to the IP of the VOIP in Internet Explorer 7"

 

How do I do this via internet explorer, is there a website I need to go to?

With the phone's base station connected to your router it will have an IP address on your local network, just like the router config page, so you just need to put the IP of the base station in to Internet Explorers address bar.
