CSTA Server

This dialog is used to configure the CSTA server.

TCP port and IP interface
Using this IP port (default 1050), the CSTA server offers its services (unencrypted).
In case only one locally installed ECSTA for Mitel MiVoice Business driver is used, the local IP interface may be configured as ''.

TLS port and IP interface
Using this IP port (default 1051), the CSTA server offers its services using TLS (encrypted).
This requires a TLS/SSL certificate.

Certificate for the TLS/SSL communication
For the encrypted communication over TLS (Transport Layer Security), a server certificate is required. A server certificate is used to uniquely identify a server. The certificate must be issued to the FQDN (fully qualified domain name) of the server. The server certificate must be issued by a trusted certifiation authority.
Certificates are configured in the Certificate Snap-In of the Management console (MMC).
The cetificate must be saved in the 'Local Computer' certificate store. They must contain a private key. The 'Local Computer' certificate store can be opened using the MMC console.
