Direct connection of C40 to another unit and sound through HDMI port

Hi,

We have a new C40 and we want to do a quick setup to test it.

The device should connect directly to another C40 unit through IP(there is no TMS).

We have connected the C40 to a TV through the HDMI port.

My first question is can we get audio on the TV speakers through the HDMI cable? Are we supposed to enable audio through the HDMI or is it on by default?

For direct connection to another C40 unit do we have to configure something special on our end?

How do we initiate the call? Is it enough to just enter the IP address of the system we are calling or do we need some other parameters as well?

Also regarding encryption: Can we just enable it through the web interface or do we need something more?

Since I'm a total beginner with telepresence any help is much appreciated.

Thank you for taking the time to respond.

Best Regards.

By default you will get audio on the HDMI. Yes you cal call ip address but you will need to disable gatekeeper and make call setup direct in the menu under H323. C40 will try and do encryption by default if the onter unit supports it. If not it will be an unencrypted.
