Before using the app

Requirements

To use this application, you must be a user of a Wildix system and have fast internet connection that doesn’t block VoIP traffic.

Ports to open: https://manuals.wildix.com/ports-used-by-wildix-services/

Use of App outside the office network: the first time you make a login from the local network, the PBX sends the settings of the public network to the application (the same for connection from the public IP). The app tries to connect using the first IP and if it fails, it moves to the second one, thus ensuring the connection both when you are in or outside the office network.

Requirements iOS

- WMS version 3.84.35087 or higher
- iOS version 9.0 or higher
- Minimum iPhone 4S

Push notifications

Thanks to push notification, the app no longer needs to run all the time. Once you receive a call / a text, the app “wakes up” in the background, even in case the app was closed.

Note: since iOS device disconnects from SIP, it disappears from the list of active devices in Wildix Collaboration interface, once you wake it up or receive a push, it appears again.


To deactivate access to Presence and SIP server and to stop receiving notifications, you can set the status to Offline or log out from the app. Read the chapters Status
and Log out for more info.

Note: you can also receive push notifications to your Apple watch. Go to iPhone Watch -> Notifications -> Collaboration and enable receiving notifications.
