The following steps are necessary for a start-up:

  • Preparation of SwyxWare, i.e. installation of the latest Quickfix, creation of a SIP gateway trunk und SwyxWare user; configuration of SwyxWare locations if necessary
  • Preparation of the Patton SmartNode
  • Adjustment and installation of the Patton SmartNode INI file

2.1. Preparation of SwyxWare

  1. Make sure that at least Quickfix 3 or a more recent Customer Hotfix/Quickfix is installed for SwyxWare2011R2.
  2. Using the configuration assistant, create a new SIP Gateway Trunk group within the SwyxWare. Select the Trunk Group Profile "SwyxConnect 6000" that fits to your environment.
  3. Create a new SIP Gateway Trunk for the newly created SIP Gateway Trunk Group.
  4. Configure "SIP-User-ID" and "SIP Username" with a value of your choice, use the same value for both items.
  5. Configure the SIP password.
  6. Configure the available range of external numbers.
  7. Activate all codecs.
  8. Configure the number of available channels.
  9. Set the local NetBIOS name as "Computername".

Afterwards, open the properties of the newly created SIP Gateway Trunk.

  1. In the tab "Encryption", set the encryption mode to "No Encryption".

2.2. Preparation of Patton SmartNode

Please update the firmware of the Patton SmartNode to one of the tested versions SmartWare 6.T Build Series 2012-07-18 or SmartWare T.6 Build Series 2013-01-15 before adjusting the configuration. The appropriate firmware can be found at  http://www.patton.com/support/upgrades/index.asp?t=SmartNode. You need an account and password from Patton to download the firmware.

Connect the SmartNode through the network interface ETH 0/0 with your LAN. The SmartNode is configured as DHCP Client. Please check the lease table of your DHCP server to detect the assigned IP address.

Log in through the web interface of the SmartNode:

Username: administrator
No password

On the navigation on the left, use the item "Import/Export" -> "Import Firmware" to transfer the downloaded firmware to the SmartNode. Afterwards, the SmartNode is restarted and uses the new firmware.

2.3. Configuration and Installation of the INI Files

At the end of this article, you can download zip-files with several configuration templates. Download the one that fits to the installed Patton SmartNode firmware:

  • SmartWare 6.T Build Series 2012-07-18 with SmartNode Template from 2012-11-22
  • SmartWare 6.T Build Series 2013-01-15 with SmartNode Template from 2013-05-24

Choose the template that fits to your environment.

2.3.1 Configuration of the INI file

2.3.2 Installation of the INI file

Connect the SmartNode through the network interface ETH 0/0 with your LAN. The SmartNode is configured as DHCP Client. Please check the lease table of your DHCP server to detect the assigned IP address.

If you want to run the SmartNode with a manually assigned IP address, please replace the line  "ipaddress dhcp" by "ipaddress IP-ADDRESS SUBNETMASK", i.e. "ipaddress 192.168.172.12 255.255.255.0" for the WAN interface in the configuration file. Additionally, you have to remove the '#' and adjust accordingly:

  • DNS-SERVER-IP1         IP address of the primary DNS server
  • DNS-SERVER-IP2         IP-Adresse of the secondary DNS server
  • STANDARD-GATEWAY-IP    IP-Adresse of the default router

Log in through the web interface of the SmartNode:

Username: administrator
