SIP Client systems are only available in iViewer v5 and guiDesigner v5 or above!
SIP is an industry standard protocol for voice and video calling.
iViewer can act as a SIP Client endpoint in a larger SIP network, making and receiving voice and video calls with other endpoints such as phones, intercoms and door stations.
You must have a PBX server/gateway available for communications to work with other SIP clients. There are many free SIP gateways available for running on your own machines, as well as quite a few online hosted solutions you can utilise.
Examples of servers:
To add a SIP Client to your guiDesigner project, you need to add a new system in the System Manager, and choose the

Setting relating to the communication (commands and responses) with the SIP Client system.
The SIP Client system type can be controlled via two different protocols:
Settings relating to communication with the SIP server.
Choose the transport to use when communicating with the SIP server. Options are
TLS (Secure TCP) and
DTLS (Secure UDP). Some SIP Servers will only allow one of these transport types, so consult your SIP server documentation for the correct one to use.
Enter the IP address or hostname of the SIP Server that you are using for your SIP network. This could be a local network appliance or software running on a local machine, in which case you would enter the server IP address. Or it could me a remotely managed/hosted service in the cloud, in which case you would most likely enter the service hostname/URL.
Enter the port number that the SIP Server is listening on for incoming SIP registrations.
Setting relating to the registration/authorisation with the SIP Server.
Enter the User ID that your device running iViewer will use to connect to the SIP Server. This is commonly the Extension number allocated in the SIP Server, or the SIP Alias name.
Enter the password associated with the User ID to register/authorise with the SIP Server.
Optional, and in most cases can be left blank. Only use this if you need to use a registration identity string that differs from the standard
