This Configuration Guide is written as general guide on how to configure the Obihai ATA model OBi508 to work with PBXware 4.1.
To start and successfully complete registration of your Obihai ATA you need to know which ATA model you will setup.
From the back of each Obihai device there are exact model information that you should check. Although different ATA models can have exactly the same requirements and installation procedure, ATA models can also have significantly different requirements and installation procedure, so that ignorance of your own model may result in the inability to successfully set up your phone.
