Before using the app
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.
- WMS version 3.84.35087 or higher
- iOS version 9.0 or higher
- Minimum iPhone 4S
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.
