Create a new Extension
To have a working phone line, you need to create a new extension. To do so, click the 'Create new Extension' button located next to the title. Press it to open the 'Extension details' panel on the right side of the screen. There you will have two options. In our case, please choose the 'Phone' option (Figure 8).
Provide phone number and password
The next step is to configure the extension details. You need to give the phone line a 'Phone number' and a 'Password'. Make sure that the phone number is unique and the password is something that is easy to remember but hard to guess. If you are finished, click the 'Ok' button located under the 'Connection' group box (Figure 9).
On Figure 10, you can see the list of all the existing phone lines (Figure 10). You can see that now there is a phone line named '1000' which was the example name before. Create another phone line named something different. In this example, it is named '2000'. This phone line will be used as the receiver of the phone call. You can now use these extensions as phone lines.
Register the phone line
Now you need to register those phone lines in the Ozeki PBX application. Click the 'Register' button located under the Status textbox. After clicking it, you will see the SIP account settings panel. Provide all the information about the first phone line and click the 'Ok' button. It will register your phone line to the program. Repeat this step with the second extension as well. This way you can use both as phone lines.
Softphone connection is active
Head over to the list of the existing phone line. There you will find that the registered extension will be visible online (Figure 12). If the dot before the title of the extension is green, it means that the phone line is registered in PBX and the connection is active. If you see that the extension is active, you can start using it.
You can use the PBX application to start a call between the two connections. As you can see highlighted on Figure 13, you can see the incoming and outgoing calls in the active calls tab. Press the 'Answer' button to accept the incoming call and start talking. You can also complete your system with video capabilities.
