Configuring your SMDR output

By default, the Swyx telephone system writes its CDR data to a MSSQL database. In order for TIM Enterprise to connect to the database and collect the call logging data, you need to create a username and password in the MSSQL database on the Swyx  server. Contact your system maintainer if you are not familiar with this procedure.

The following information is required for TIM Enterprise to connect to the Swyx  database:

  • IP address or hostname of the  Swyx server where the MSSQL database resides.
  • Username and Password of the Swyx database.

The default credentials for the Swyx  database are shown below:

Username: Swyxcdr
Password: Swyxcdr
