3CX for Windows


Before you start, you need to know your VoIP username, password and the server that your number is connected to. You can do this from your Goldfish account, by clicking My Goldfish, then “Your Numbers“, then the telephone number that you wish to connect to. The VoIP username and VoIP password are near the bottom of the page, in a section entitled VoIP Settings.
