Softphone as teleworker on UC540 easiest/cheapest?
The VPN client built into the SPA525G2 does a great connecting to the remote UC540. But the user would like to use a softphone on a notebook for travel purposes.
Cisco has IP Communicator. If someone purchased a UC540, do they also have to purchase licenses for the IP Communicator? Any idea what the costs would be for basically a single user?
Also, does it have a built-in VPN client? Or do I have to first establish a VPN connection, and then start the CIPC? Can I use the VPN client that I installed into the UC540 when I was configuring it?
Are there any other softphones that will work with a UC540? Bonus points if there are any that have a built-in VPN client. I'd like to make it as simple as possible for the guy, he can be technology challenged.
Any tips on the fastest/easiest/least expensive path are welcome.
