Once the instructions of the trixbox server tutorial have been correctly followed, our trixbox server should be configured with three extensions or phone numbers.

SIP Softphones are used on three laptops, two Windows and one Linux.
A softphone is a phone installed on a computer while a hardphone is a physical phone similar to a standard phone. Depending on their possibilities, both phone types are capable of using VoIP.

You can find a listing of Softphones on the Wikipedia or on the voip-info.org web sites.
In our tutorial, we chose the following softphones: Wengophone, Twinkle and X-Lite.

Here is a summary of each laptop:
