How to configure an X-Lite Softphone
X-Lite is a softphone client, created by counterpath, which can be used to make and receive calls over the internet through a next generation carrier like Telnyx! X-Lite can be used on Windows or Mac OS platforms only.
You'll need to have created a credentials based connection on your Telnyx Mission Control Portal account, assigned this connection to a DID and outbound profile in order to make and receive outbound calls. This provides you with the username and password you will use to register X-Lite with Telnyx.
You can download the latest version of X-Lite here.
Details on how to install the application can be found in counterpaths resource centre.
Coming soon! This walkthrough will demonstrate setting up a credentials based connection which will provide you with the username and password you need to register a VoIP account on your X-Lite. We'll also show you how to assign this connection to a newly purchased DID which will allow you to receive inbound calls. Then we'll walk you through how to assign the connection to an outbound profile such that you can make outbound calls!
For step by step instructions on each of the requirements on the Telnyx Mission Control Portal, please follow this guide.
