The Obi100 is a 1-phone port ATA adapter that support SIP VoIP services, the OBi100 is perfect for customers who do not have a traditional phone service, yet need similar solution and want the savings and simplicity of using a VoIP service for all their calls. To start configuring your Obi100 you will need to plug it to your router/modem via its Internet port with an Ethernet cable and connect a regular handset phone to its Phone port, then follow the next steps.

Manual Configuration details

**NOTE : You may use this guide to configure an Obi110 as well. This is the VoIP.ms recommended configuration versus using the Obihai configuration dashboard (more of this later on this page) and you may also not find all new VoIP.ms servers on the Obihai Dahsboard. In order to make sure there will be no conflicts between this Manual configuration and the Obihai dashboard, please perform the following steps to disable auto-provisioning:

After this, save all changes and you are good to move on to the actual configuration.


Start by dialing * * * from the connected phone, then press 1 to confirm your choice, this will return the IP address of your device being a number similar to 192.168.xxx.xxx.
Once you get the IP address, enter it in the URL address bar "http://" of your Internet Browser to get access to the Graphic User Interface of the Obi100.

For an OBI202 please do the following to enable the GUI Web Interface: 	



If done properly, the following window should appear on your screen:

Once you get the Authentication Required window you will be prompted for a User Name and Password, the default credentials are:

Password: admin

After this, you should now be able to see the Obi Web interface. Now on the left side of the screen please find the next options and follow the next steps:


Service Providers >> ITSP Profile A >> SIP

In this section you can set the server and the port that you wish to register to.

Checking your Voicemail

If you encounter any issues when you try to check your VoiP.MS Voicemail. Please try the following suggestions.

Try changing your Dial plan. Replace the 555 digits in the following lines by the area code of your choice and copy the line, including parenthesis, in the Digitmap field in the ITSP Profile:

Default Dial Plan:

((1xxxxxxxxxx|<1555>[2-9]xxxxxx|<1>[2-9]xxxxxxxxx|011xx.|xx.|(Mipd)|[^*]@@.) 

Dial Plan to allow you to dial other numbers plus those beginning with * followed by one or more numbers:

(1xxxxxxxxxx|<1555>[2-9]xxxxxx|<1>[2-9]xxxxxxxxx|011xx.|xx.|*xx.|(Mipd)|[^*]@@.)

Dial Plan to allow you to dial other number plus *97 and *98 ONLY:

(1xxxxxxxxxx|<1555>[2-9]xxxxxx|<1>[2-9]xxxxxxxxx|011xx.|xx.|*9[78]|(Mipd)|[^*]@@.)

Also, some clients have been successful by dialing **1 and *97 for line 1 or **2 and *97 for line 2.



An additional note regarding Outbound Calling

In at least one instance it was necessary to specify a non-default outbound calling route in the Obi110 to be able to place calls using the voip.ms service. The default setting had the Obi110 attempting to place calls using the PSTN port on the device. The relevant setting is:

Physical Interfaces >> PHONE Port

The default is PSTN. Select SP1 Service if you only have one SIP account configured on the device. Select Trunk Group 1 to have it attempt to place calls using SP1 first, then SP2. Additional Trunk groups can be configured under Voice Services >> Gateways and Trunk Groups.

Configuration Using OBi Dashboard

Besides the Manual Configuration previously explained, Obihai also provide us with their own API dashboard where you can add your device, to complete the configuration in easy simple steps. Add your device to the OBitalk service in the OBi Dashboard [1]. Instructions for this are included with the obi110 and are not discussed here.

After the obi110 is added, edit the device. You can select Service Provider 1 or Service Provider 2 under the Configure Voice Services heading. This will take you to a page where you can select voip.ms. Follow the instructions and once you are done the configuration will be downloaded to your obi110.

10 Second Delay Reaching voip.ms Voicemail Attendant when dialing *97 or *98

The Obi 100, 110 and 202 devices have non-configurable 'short' and 'long' delays if a dialed sequence does not match a digitmap. So you may have a 10 second delay when you dial into your voip.ms voicemail because of the built-in 'long' delay. This can be resolved in a couple of ways. Simply dial a # sign after you dial *97 or *98. Or include literals in your digitmap under the Service Provider / ITSP profile A or B / General / digitmap. Here is an example digitmap with a *97 literal included:

(1xxxxxxxxxx|<1>[2-9]xxxxxxxxx|011xx.|xx.|*xx.|'*97'|(Mipd)|[^*#]@@.)

The literal in the example is '*97'. You could also add a literal for '*98'.

Then when you dial *97, the device immediately sends it instead of waiting 10 seconds.

Read more on digitmaps under the topic Digit Map Configuration in the Obi Device Admin Guide.

Please check this link to your Star Codes that are needed to activate and deactivate some of the features on your device.

Known Issues and Resolutions

If you experience random call drops while in the middle of a call or if the person you talk to remains silent for over a minute (60 seconds by default), OBi will hang up the call. Please go here and check and increase this setting (Physical interface -> LINE port -> DetectFarEndLongSilence / SilenceTimeThreshold)

If you start to receive phone calls in the middle of the night, this is due to SIP scanners and is no fault of VOIP.ms.

To resolve this just disable by unchecking Enable for SP2 and OBiTALK under your Voice Tab.
You can also change your Obi Firewall Setting X_InboundCallRoute to : {(?|x|xx|xxx|xxxx|xxxxx|xxxxxx|un@@.|anon@@.):}, ph
This will only allow 7 digit or greater numbers through.

If you plan on using the Phone Book in your Customer Portal and Speed Dial *75.

Please log into your OBI and change the built-in speed dial code from *75 in the device to something else.

Enable Message Waiting Indicator MWI

To enable MWI please refer to the following section of the OBI web page:

Voice Services -> SP1 Service -> Calling Features ->

MWIEnable - Uncheck the box at the far right, to be able to check the box at the left, this enables the option.

X_VMWIEnable - Uncheck the box at the far right, to be able to check the box at the left, this enables the option.

MessageWaiting - Mark the checkbox

After these steps, the MWI should be active and working.
