Abstract

A user gets a new SIP User Agent (UA); it may be a hardware device or software. Some User Agents have a user interface that can accept a username, password, and domain name. Other devices, like Analog Telephony Adapters (ATAs), have no user interface other than that provided by an attached analog phone. How does a non-technical user minimally configure it so that when it is started, something useful happens?
