Administration of recorded extensions for Passive Recorder

The Verba Passive Recorder service allows you to record SCCP and SIP phones or SIP trunks using packet capturing technology through monitor ports. In order to setup extensions/directory numbers for recording, the monitor port of the switch(es) has to be configured properly and the extension has to be added optionally in the Verba system.

This topic only focuses on the phone administration, there are other mandatory tasks for the complete configuration of the Verba server. For more information, see /wiki/spaces/docs/pages/6818542.
