UserGuide bullet Calling using IAX


YateClient is also an IAX client, that means that if your telephony services provider uses the IAX protocol, you will successfully make your calls with YateClient.

The same as for calling using SIP, there are 2 ways of using YateClient with IAX.


1. Being logged into your telephony account
While you are logged into your account, you just need to do this:
1.1. Check that you are indeed logged into your account (see on the Use Telephony Account page more details).

1.2. Click on the telephony tab. Make sure you have the "Calls" button selected (like in the following image):

1.3. Write the destination number using either the keyboard or the dial-pad within the client.
1.4. Press the Call button and wait for the other party to answer.


On the other hand, you might know exactly the configuration of the path between you and the target.


Then, you can call by ...


2. URI calling with YateClient.


2.1. Go to Telephony tab (see step 1.2 from above)


2.2. In the place especially reserved for this (see step 1.3. from above), write the destination with the following format (the grey background signifies that those parts can be missing):
