Setup Vonage VOIP Account
Voicent software works with Vonage VoIP soft phone directly. It does not need a Vonage router/ATA box to make calls. You must have Vonage soft phone service instead of their standard hard phone service. Please contact Vonage for a soft phone service if you don’t already have one.
If your call volume is high, you may need to get a Vonage business plan. Please be aware that all unlimited calling plans are for residential account with usage limit. Please contact Vonage for your calling plans.
After logging into to your account, obtain the following information:
1. SIP/Authorization ID
3. SIP Password
If you are not sure about how to obtain your SIP info from your Vonage account, please check the instructions about how to setup Vonage with X Lite. X Lite is a popular free softphone that you can use with Vonage. It is basically a program that allows you to make phone calls from your computer using Vonage service. Vonage support should be able to help you set up X Lite on your computer.
Once X Lite is work, you can simply use the same information in Voicent program. Please note there is no need to mention Voicent software when contacting Vonage support. Mentioning call center software may confuse them. All you need to do is to get X Lite working on your computer with Vonage service.
Please Note the SIP password is NOT your regular Vonage account password. If you enter your account password instead of SIP password, you will most likely receive an error message like “Failed to start…”. You can find your SIP password after you log into your VoIP account. It is listed under the soft phone feature page. Or you can contact Vonage for your SIP password.
