The Subscription server allows provisioning
of services and every new user has to register
in order to be further authenticated.
So, first of all, open your browser to this
if you want to use our UNIK deployment;
otherwise replace the server name and the port
used in your configuration.
Now you see the rough UNIK's welcome page and
you can authenticate yourself, unless you are a
new user: in this case you have to register and
click on the link on the right in order to
insert your data:
- First Name and Last Name;
- User Id: is the string that identifies
you in the system and in the SIP network;
- Password: is your secret password to be
used with the User Id;
- PersonalNumber: is a number of 4 digits
that identifies you in the system and in the
- PIN: is a secret number that is needed
to identify you with your Personal Number.
- Preferred Language: it allows you
choosing your favorite language, but the
current implementation support only english.
Once registered, if you choose the User
profile page you can modify some of your data or
if you choose service
profile, you can subscribe to the available
If you select the basic communication
service, you have just to select your
default terminal, putting your IP address (if
you are connected with a SIP client on your PC),
or putting your phone number (if you are behind
a PBX you have to put only the internal number,
without the PBX prefix).
If you subscribe to the Phone Logger
service you have to select your default
e-mail address: in this case, you will be
notified of each call attempt you have not
From the system administrator's point of
view, the Subscription Server allows defining a
service instance from a SERVICE TEMPLATE.
Using the Service Config application included
in the Administration Application, you can
associate to a service instance the properties
chosen by the hierarchy of the Service template.
For example, let's see the Basic Communication
- Required services: NESSUNO (= None)
- Accounting method: FREE SERVICE
- Service properties: is a list of
properties, each with a name, an attribute CONFIGURABILITY
(that can be "Fixed by provider" or
"Configurable by user") and an
- Server reference contains the name
of the interface reference in the CORBA
naming service (its value is PIPPO) and its
configurability is Fixed by provider.
- Server interface is the name of the
interface that implement this service (its
ii_pippoManagement) and its configurability is Fixed by provider.
- Default synch address type is Fixed by provider
and it will contain the type of the default
synchronous address (IP address or phone
number) of the user..
- Default synch address is Configurable by
user and it will contain the default synchronous
address (IP address or phone number) of the
- Default asynch address type is Fixed by
provider and it will contain the type of the
default asynchronous address of the user
(e-mail, ICQ number, phone secretary):
currently its value is " e-mail"
(because it is the only asynchronous address
- Default asynch address is Configurable by
user and it contains the default asynchronous
