The computer settings are used to permanently assign lines to a (computer) location.
Here two phones can be allocated, which always sit beside this computer (usually not mobile phones). If a user logs-on to this computer, he or she can use these phones even if he or she is not the owner of these phones. See also Roaming users.
These settings are only valid for the multi-line TAPI driver, if it has been installed on the computer. The multi-line TAPI driver always provides the extensions defined on the computer, regardless of who has logged on to it. Alternatively to the configuration of individual lines all line can be enabled and provided via entering an asterik *. The multi-line TAPI driver then always reflects the currently available lines on the server. This is required, for example, for use with a Terminal Server.
Only authorized users may dial
If this option is activated, the use of the lines is limited. Only the owner of a line is able to use it actively. The current user name is determined for this, for example, starting a call on a line. It is then verified whether it is the user's own line in the User configuration. Only then can the line be used actively.
