    Hi,

    I want to place our 3CX PBX into our DMZ. I have set up auto-provisioning for our Polycom handsets, using 'Option 66' in DHCP, and this works perfectly.

    However, I would like to be able to 'Auto Provision' the 3CXPhone users, running on Windows PCs on the LAN.

    I have full control of the Firewall configuration, and can set up anything required.

    My main question is; how does the 3CXPhone 'Auto Provision' method work? Specifically, how does it 'find' the 3CX PBX?

    I know I can manually provision the soft phones etc, but I really liked the functionality that 'Auto Provision' (the pop-up when you first run the 3CX SoftPhone) gave me. I could just tell people to install the software, and I can create extensions as needed.

    Can anyone help?

    Many thanks,

    Geoff

    A lot will depend on what type of set(s) you plan on deploying.

    There are more examples if you search the forum.
