Twinkle

GENERAL INFORMATION
Twinkle is a GPL based softphone for the linux operating system. Twinkle supports many of the features provided by Callcentric except for call transfer. The software is very easy to use and yet provides a variety of configuration options that many power users would find necessary. Twinkle supports various codecs, of which we are only interested in PCMU/G.711u for use with Callcentric, as well as DTMF signaling under RFC2833.

DISCLAIMER: We do not provide installation instructions for this software and assume that you have already installed it on your OS. If you require further installing instructions please visit the Twinkle page. Additionally it should be noted that call transfer will not work with Twinkle and Callcentric since we do not support the REFER SIP transfer method.

Twinkle FAQ


Configuring Twinkle version 1.0.1
The configuration information below is based on Twinkle version 1.0.1 (May 2007) running on Ubuntu Feisty 7.04 (x86). A newer version of Twinkle, version 1.1, has also been tested and confirmed to work.

After properly installing Twinkle on your linux machine you will be able to add Callcentric as a SIP provider. You may follow the instructions below to configure Twinkle to work with the Callcentric service.

We recommend that you read each step through in its entirety before performing the action indicated in the step.
STEP 1a Open Twinkle. If this is your first time runnning Twinkle you will be prompted with a message stating Before you can use Twinkle you must create a user profile. Click OK to create a new profile. Once done move on to STEP 2.



STEP 1b If you have other profiles already configured you will need to click File from the menu at the top of the application. Then click Change user.... Once the profle screen is displayed please move on to STEP 2 below.



STEP 2 Click on the Wizard button in order to create your new Callcentric profile. In the next window enter callcentric as the profile name and click OK.



STEP 3 You will then be given the opportunity to configure your account settings. Fill in the fields with the information below:

SIP Service Provider:Other
Your Name:Enter your name in this field
User name:This is either the default extension 1777MYCCID OR 1777MYCCIDEXT, where 1777MYCCID is the 1777 number assigned to you by Callcentric and EXT is the three digit extension you are trying to register this UA to.

For example: 17770001234101 would register to extension 101 on account 17770001234.

You cannot register to your account using only the extension number.
Domain:callcentric.com
Authentication user name:This is either the default extension 1777MYCCID OR 1777MYCCIDEXT, where 1777MYCCID is the 1777 number assigned to you by Callcentric and EXT is the three digit extension you are trying to register this UA to.

For example: 17770001234101 would register to extension 101 on account 17770001234.

You cannot register to your account using only the extension number.
Password:Enter your extension SIP Password here. Your extension SIP password is the password you created for the extension you are trying to use. You may edit the SIP password you wish to use in by logging into your My Callcentric account and clicking on the Extension menu link and then modifying the appropriate extension.
SIP proxy:callcentric.com
STUN server:Leave this field empty as you do not need a STUN server with the Callcentric service




STEP 4 If this is your first time configuring an account in Twinkle you will then be given the opportunity to adjust your system settings for this software. If this is your first time configuring Twinkle then you may configure your settings according to your desired preferences. Once done confirm your settings to save them.

STEP 5 This is the last configuration step of this guide. Here you will configure additional settings specific to your Callcentric account which will enable you to eliminate potential problems which may occur. To do this choose Edit from the application menu and perform the following. Once done click OK to save your changes.

Under RTP audio
Leave G.711 u-law as the only item under Active codecs



Set DTMF transpport to RFC 2833



Under SIP Protocol
Check MAX-Forwards header is mandatory
Uncheck Put registration expiry time in contact header
Uncheck Allow redirection



STEP 6

That's it! You can now make a phone call.

You can make a test call to 17771234567, or if you are signed up for one of Callcentric's rate plans you can place a call to a traditional landline or mobile phone by dialing either:
1 + the area code and number for calls to the US
Or
011 + the country code, area code, and number for calls worldwide (you may also use 00 instead of 011).
