  4. If correct, you will hear "Agent logged in" and the browser page will update.

Additional Information 

A Softphone connection sends audio over the internet and once a Softphone application is installed and configure with the correct SIP information agents can open connection anywhere, they have internet access.

There are various Softphone applications available to download. We recommend you use Zoiper. See below for details on configuring your Zoiper application:
