    I'm getting ready to migrate my phone system from an existing 3CXv8 (running on XP with a real computer) to a new v9 setup with Win2k8R2 in a Hyper-V VM. I'm using http://www.3cx.com/blog/docs/hyper-v-instance/ as a guide and have a few questions.

    The article says
    what is this for?

    what us this for?

    I don't really have an issue with doing these things, I'm just curious what they are for.

    I will not be using the Sykpe feature.
    I plan on using Abyss.
    I have about 20 extensions and use a VOIP provider.

    Any other thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Windows Media Player is one of those things...
