Hi, I'm using vodia version 63.0.5. How can I find the SIP password of an extension? I do not want to reset it. I want to check what is the SIP password of that extension?

 

Thank You

There is no way to find the password. It is generally considered a bad practice to find passwords, at least if they were entered by a human. You should instead create a new password. If you have lost the root password, you can reset the account from the file system. From there on you can always drill down on domain and user to overwrite passwords.

Situation is like this. I've a user using Deskphone in the office and he need to register Softphone at home. He need to know SIP password. How can I gave him? You don't think it's needed? Admin should have capability to find the password.

Nope, not needed. He can just create a new SIP password (if he's the domain / system admin) or ask the domain admin to create a new password for him and use that.

1) If you programmed them manually, can't you reuse the same password then?

2) Even if you use a new password now, it won't affect your deskphone because you've manually registered them. Should be fine.

You can try with one phone and see the results.

If you automatically provision the desktop phone, the PBX will generate a MAC-dependent password for the VoIP phone. Then you can change the SIP password without any problems. If you use the SIP password also in the desktop phone, well then you need to change it there as well.
