Installation of web interface and database on your Windows server

  • Set up database
    • Set up SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). There is a free "Express" version
    • Set up MSSQL server. There is a free "Express" version
    • Open MSSQL management studio, connect to server, create database "VoipStatus" (you can choose a different name for the database)
    • Create login to connect to the database

  • Set up web server
    • Go to Server Manager, enable ASP.NET 4.0 and IIS features
    • Press Win+R, cmd.exe, run
      %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -i
      %windir%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_regiis.exe -ir
    • Open IIS manager
    • Remove default web site
    • Create new web site. Enter host name (like "")
    • Download web server binaries from here, unzip, copy into the new website folder. There is a "web.config" file in root of the folder
    • If you have SSL certificate: import the certificate using IIS manager, add HTTPS binding to the website using the imported certificate
    • If you dont have SSL certificate
      • Configure setting "RequireHttps" in web.config file, set to "False":
         <setting name="RequireHttps" serializeAs="String">
    • Configure database connection string in the web.config
       <add name="VoipStatusDatabase" connectionString="Data Source=localhost\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=VoipStatus;User ID=voipstatus;Password=xxxxxx" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
  • Log into web interface
    • Default admin credentials: email = "admin", password="123456"
    • Change password (using configuration menu)

Configure company details and settings

  • Edit email (the email is used for login)
  • Edit logo URL. Make sure that the logo URL is accessible in browser
  • Edit company name
  • Edit notifications settings for VoIP readiness tests
  • If you need integration with your ticket system via HTTP API: configure it here

Deployment of SIP server test node on your Windows server

  • Install Wireshark and WinPCAP under admin account, make sure that packet capture works
  • Open ports in windows firewall: UDP 5060..30000 (SIP, RTP), TCP 19019 (SIP Tester web API), TCP 80 (HTTP), TCP 443 (HTTPS)
  • If you have firewall on hosting provider side: open same ports
  • Go to Configuration - Servers -> Create new server test node
  • Install SIP tester on your server from MSI installer (zipped StarTrinity.SIPTester.Setup.msi) or ZIP archive with binaries. This should be a dedicated instance of SIP Tester, not used for other tests
  • Run the new installed SIP Tester instance, it will first start in regular mode, not configured for the "VoIP Status" operation
  • Open the "deploy" link in browser on same machine where SIP Tester is installed (on your server)
  • Click "auto-configure"

  • Check server status in web UI
  • Optionally configure server: public IP address / host name to be used for SIP and HTTP

Running VoIP readiness test

  • Go to Configurtion -> Start VoIP readiness test
  • Send download link to the customer. [Customer runs the downloaded exe file]

  • See status of the test, when it is complete see results
