After reboot you can find the OutCall software running on your system tray.
Let’s move to the https://portal.broadtela.com web interface to create an AMI user for allowing OutCall connection to the PBX.
In the Settings page locate the Manager Users button and proceed to the configuration page

 
Adding one or more users. One user is enough.

 
Now get back to OutCall and start configuring it accessing the Settings page.
In the Dialing rules section, General subsection, set the Outgoing context to “authenticated”

In the Server section, fill the Server address, the username and secret created in the “Manager Users” and change the port to 5039.
