    Hi,
    Not sure if this should be under feature requests or not?.

    It would be very handy if there was an easy way to export and import VoIP client configurations. For example I have 10 Clients to setup for people and it would be great if I could get them to download the client and just open a config file that I had prepared for them. much easier that asking them to go through 3 pages of settings and expecting them to get it right.
    An Ideal solution is if 3CX could generate the config file automatically but not a necessity.

    I did notice that the VoIP client has a 3CXTunnel.ini file but this only contains the tunnel settings not the whole client.

    Just a thought.

    Cheers

    Neil

    All configurations options are stored in the Phone.ini file which can be found in C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Local Settings\Application Data\3CX VoIP Client\

    This allows you to have different configurations for different users. The 3CXTunnel.ini is stored in the program directory since it's config needs to be global across all users on that machine.

    I made a batch file to work this. Here's the code of the most important part of the file (Config3CXClient.bat) I send to the user with the Phone.ini file. You could also just copy the Phone.ini to the folder like darrellchapman said, but some basic users will propably won't be able to do it, so that's why I did a batch file to make the process automatic. This batch file is complete and working even if I removed some parts that are related to my network.

    Code:
    @echo off
    
    :begin
    cls
    goto close3cx
    
    :close3cx
    echo 3CX Client is now closing
    taskkill /F /IM 3CXVoIPClient.exe /T
    taskkill /F /IM 3CXTunnel.exe /T
    cls
    goto install
    
    :install
    echo Configuration in progress
    copy /y Phone.ini %userprofile%\LocalS~1\Applic~1\3CXVoI~1\
    cls
    goto installok
    
    :installok
    echo -----------------------------------------------
    echo 3CX Phone System Client configuration completed
    echo -----------------------------------------------
    pause
    goto end
    
    :end
    exit
    
    Hope that helps you.
